“It Will Be Extremely Difficult For Tottenham To Hold On To Modric”

By on July 10, 2011

Former Chelsea hero Ray Wilkins suggests Tottenham will find it difficult to keep hold of Luka Modric.

The Croatian international has already been subject to a rejected bid from Chelsea and has told the club he wants to move to the West Londoners.

Despite Tottenham boss Harry Redknaap and Chairman Daniel Levy remaining defiant that the 25-year old will not be sold, Wilkins believes it’s only a matter of time before the player moves on. Wilkins told talkSPORT:

“I don’t think it’ll be too long before Chelsea start dipping into the [transfer] market.

“There will be some big names coming in and there will probably be a few disappearing as well.

“I think it will be extremely difficult for Tottenham to hold on to Modric if you look at the numbers being thrown around.

“Modric is wonderfully talented but football is a job of work and if someone offers more money to go elsewhere, no matter what business or what vocation they have in life, they will leave and go for something better.”

    I have got news for Chelsea and Man City that is all bad;
    1) Spurs will sell around 8 of their fringe players and buy 2 world class strikers.
    2) Spurs will announce definate 60 000 seater stadium plans soon. We have over 20 000 awaiting season tickets
    3) From the season after the coming one all clubs who do not make a geniune audited profit will not be allowed to play in Europe.

    Both Chelsea and Man City will have to balance their books in the coming season to anable profits in the following season. So there cannot be any ridiculouse big / funded money signings with huge weekly wages if they wnat to play in Europe.

    Wake up now evryone and smell the roses. Stop these pathetic articles.

    Well, to date and the last time I looked he was wearing the Spurs shirt. Difficult to hold on to? what?like,Nasri Fabrigas or Ronaldo difficult or even Zidane or Figo in terms of difficulty? or as difficult in holding on to a job in football management for any sustained period!

    Mark Munro…… I take my hat off to you. The one thing Tottenham has over Man(bee) City Chelsea and the other losers they can’t and will not be able to balance their books period.

  6. Modric is unhappy at present for not being allowed to join chelsea, unhappy player will never do well for his team. He’s expressed his desire to join chelsea. So, Levy and co let him go and he’ll make a good signing for chelsea and money u!

    The insidious corruption that sweats out of the Russian’s pores, has infected even Wilkins and countless Chelsea fans with their disingenuous mouthings.

    Your club once had a soul, Mr. Wilkins.

    Now, as your monumental article to asinine superficiality well proves, it operates on the planet’s lowest common denominator, that every human being has his or her price.

    You may have left Chelsea but
    Abromavitch still pulls your strings.

    Levy apparently agreed that if a serious offer came in from a Big Club then he’d consider it. Chelsea aren’t a big club, they just happen to have a wealthy owner, and the offer was derisory, not serious, so Levy is quite within his rights to say No, Niet, nein

    Man City have conned Plattini and the public. City is owned by Manchester council and The Club have done a deal to rename the ground and The council will get 5 million City say they will get 120 million how come Ettihad are owned by the same people who own City.? Chelsea wont be able to get in the champs league and ABV his having one last go and then will be going back to Russia and selling the club to USMANOV who ownes 26 percent of Arsenal

    It would be worth selling Modric to Man City just to piss off man Utd and Chelsea. By far worse is the nonsense written today about Berbatov and Evans going to Spurs. It is like the rumours about Drogba, Spurs do not need has beens.
