£20m+ for Modric

The Sun reports that Manchester United will need to find in excess of £20million for Croatian star Luka Modric. Tottenham are desperate to hang onto Modric but know they will find it difficult to keep hold of the 25-year old if Manchester United comes in for him.

With the announcement that United legend Paul Scholes will retire Fergie see the Spurs ace as a perfect replacement. The failure to secure Champions League football for the second successive season means Tottenham face a struggle to hold onto their prized asset.

QPR set to bid for Eboue

Emmanuel Eboue is linked with a shock move to recently promoted QPR. The Ivorian utility player is set to end a spell of 6 seasons with the Gunners and with a cull of players expected to leave the Emirates in the summer, Eboue is amongst those set for the axe.

The 28-year old has been linked with a move to Roma but would prefer to stay in London with QPR favourites to land the colourful right back.

The Daily Star reports that Neil Warnock is looking for much needed Premiership experienc this summer and Eboue would set the club back around £5million.

    DL and Arry need to get our star players together and state to them that they are Tottenham players for next season, like and live with it!. If we fail to qualify for the CL after next season, then by all means leave if you feel the need.

    COYS!

    United need to sign Sneijder, Nasri and Young. If Modric doesnt come, its not a train smash. Sneijder would be better suited to replacing Scholes. United also need a defensive midfielder such as Diarra or De Rossi. Midfield needs top be the main focus. Fergie should forget Sanchez as Nasri is class and if Arsenal would sell him to United, could probably get him cheaper than Sanchez. Let Sanchez go sit on Barcelona or man Citys bench!

    Why not just say ‘Tottenham want more than £1 for Modric. Of course they want more that £20m – Torres went for £50, Dzeko for £30m etc. etc. Modric is better than Kaka and how much did he go for? Pointless article which has been done 999 times already and isn’t true anyway.

    Totally agree Big Mal. The rubbish being posted shows the despearation of sites like this.Proper journalists would top ’emselves before they quoted the Sun. Yes they quoted the Sun, elevating it to credibility. LMAO. Presumably these sites think Spurs will sell Modric in an how low auction. Talk about drivel from the challenged!!!!!!
