REPORTS: Chelsea Move Ahead Of United In Modric Chase
Chelsea are hoping to lure Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric to Stamford Bridge by trebling his wages.
The Sun suggests the Blues are prepared to offer the Croatian a massive bumper pay packet with reports suggesting the 25-year old could earn £130,000 a week.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will fight to keep his creative midfielder at White Hart Lane next season, but the lure of Champions League football and a massive increase in wages could be too much to turn down.
The £30million rated maestro has been linked with a move north, with Manchester United preparing a bid. But it is the Blues who have stolen a march on United and appear determined to land their man – a Chelsea source was quoted as saying:
“Not having a manager yet won’t slow anything down.”
“There’s a hitlist of players to sign and Modric is right at the top of it.”
