Team-Mate Tells Modric To Join Chelsea.…Next Season
Rafael van der Vaart has revealed he has told team-mate Luka Modric to remain at White Hart Lane for one more season, then move on to Chelsea.
Reports recently have suggested Chelsea were preparing a third bid for Modric with the Croatian keen to join the Blues. Van der Vaart acknowledges Modric will initially be disappointed but expects it to be business as usual once the season starts.
“I’m really happy that he’s going to stay because he’s an important player for us,” Van der Vaart told Sky Sports News.
“I’m happy, of course. Almost every day we ask him to stay and say ‘have a great season, then you can go!’
“The chairman always said he’s going to stay, no questions about it.
“I understand he was a little bit disappointed, but in a few weeks he’s going to be happy again.”
