TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea Line-Up Enticing Second Offer For Modric

By on June 20, 2011

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.

    If he is on facebook, it would be nice to hear Modric’s version of him wanting to stay or leave Spurs.

    The only people who would be enticed by an increased offer for Modric would be the media.

    I think we have to admit that Essien is slowing and he is more defensive and less creative than someone like Modric. But I don’t think Chelsea will do a swap. But once a player like Modric declares his desire to play elsewhere you have to let him go. It makes no sense to keep a player against his will. Such a player only becomes a liability to his team. Everyone knows this. The best thing for Tottenham is to take the money and use it well. When a player goes public, its game over.

    Swap Essein to get Modric and Chelsea is doomed. Let’s not make that kind of mistake we made in Ashley Cole’s deal.
