TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Line-Up Enticing Second Offer For Modric
Chelsea are prepared to offer Michael Essien plus cash to persuade Tottenham to sell Luka Modric.
The Blues have already had a £22m bid rejected by Spurs which was deemed “ridiculous” by Harry Redknapp who also described recent £20m signings as ‘aren’t fit to lace his boots’.
Roman Abramovich is desperate to get his man and is prepared to offer Michael Essien plus an eight figure sum to entice Tottenham into selling their midfielder reports the Metro.
The Ghanaian had a season blighted with injuries and poor form and reports suggest the 28-year old could have played his last game at Stamford Bridge.
Modric has already said he wants to join Chelsea ‘I have enjoyed my time there, but now it is right for me to look at another club,’ he told the Daily Mail last week.
But Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy insists the Croatian will not be sold this summer ‘I wish to make it absolutely clear, as I have said previously, that none of our key players will be sold this summer,’ Levy said in a strongly-worded statement.
‘For the avoidance of any doubt, let me reiterate that we shall not enter into any negotiations whatsoever, with any club, regarding Luka.
