AGENT: Modric “Honoured” By Fergie Link & Would ‘Discuss’ Move

By on June 17, 2011

The agent of Luka Modric has said his client would be interested in a move to Old Trafford. Manchester United have been strongly linked the Croatian and Modric’s representative Nikky Vuksan has suggested he would consider a move North, if Spurs let him.

“Exactly. If that was the Spurs position then we would be happy to sit with the club and discuss for the future,”

Vuksan told the Guardian, before being careful to emphasise Modric is not agitating for a move:

“He’s happy at Spurs. Any offer that comes [in] for him, it’s up to the decision of Tottenham Hotspur if they want to reject it or accept it. We have a great partnership with Tottenham and there’s not been [any] activity on our behalf that we would do on our own.

“Everything is in coordination with Spurs, and it’s all up to the chairman, Daniel Levy, to decide. [Luka’s] under contract, he’s happy there [and] he’s willing to try to win the Premiership with Spurs and play Champions League [the] next season.”

Modric has always stated his desire to play in the Champions League, something that will not be on offer at White Hart Lane next season. Sir Alex Praised the Croatian after he put in an outstanding display and Vuksan continued:

“Of course. He loves the Champions League experience, it was a great honour for Sir Alex to say something like this and he uses it only as a motivation to continue on such a level,” he said.

Chelsea are also interested in the playmaker and are set to submit a second bid for Modric this weekend after they had a £22million bid turned down on Thursday.

    One little problem with this article. The bloke that is quoted is not modric’s agent. End of non-existent story. Move on. More useless lazy journalism.

    They highlight certain things in these articles to get these on the most read list of certain news groups.

    The facts of this article are; Modric is happy to stay at spurs and is not looking to move.

    He would be “willing” to discuss a transfer if Spurs agree to sell him (so would any player to most clubs)

    He is flattered by compliments from one of the top managers in world football (I’m flattered when an ugly bird tells me she fancies me…)

    Whether it is or is not Modric’s real agent is irrelevant, there is nothing but positive news for Spurs fans here.

    In the Daily Mail tomorrow though…

    Stoney, he’s not his agent but he does work for ASA international.. he’s listed as his representative.. its quite a clever way of avoiding trouble cos he can say what he wants n the agent along with any clubs are guilt free due to it just being an associate thats said something..

    Outrageous distortion of agent’s comments taken out of context. He was referring to Spurs not Man U When he said he would discuss plans. You should be ashamed of yourself for distributing this garbage and pretending it’s news.
