TRANSFER NEWS: Modric Urges Chelsea To Make Third Bid

By on August 13, 2011

Luka Modric has again failed to commit his future to Tottenham by suggesting he is waiting for Chelsea to up their bid and make the move happen.

The Croatian is Andre Villa-Boas’ number one target this summer with the playmaker already admitting he wants to leave White Hart Lane and speculation is rife that Chelsea are preparing a third bid for him.

Both Daniel Levy and Harry Redknapp remain defiant over their stance with Modric and insist he will not be sold. When quizzed on the speculation the 25-year-old told RTE Sport:

“I don’t want to talk about that, I said before what I think and that’s it.

“I said a lot of things before and still everything is the same at the moment. I will see – I’m still waiting.”

    Let us get Toni Kroos. Or maybe Mario Gotze or Shinji Kagawa, these two guys would be cheaper and are starting to become world class, but doubt Borussia would let any of them go..

    Mr. Levy just want more money. Modric will become a blue before the transfer window closes. He (levy) wouldn’t want to sell @ a lesser price for lesser perfomance in january or next summer. Penny wise, pound foolish.

    How fortunate for Daniel Levy to receive the valued fiancial advice from Bluevein. When Levy’s pathetic history of only becoming a self made millionaire several times over is compared with the accumulated wealth and financial track record of Bluevein, no doubt is pales into total insignificance.If this poster had an iota of intelligence in anbalysing Levy’s record and character perhaps he might reflect that Levy hold ALL the aces and a contract with Modric that still has FIVE YEARS to run.Shouldn’t Bluevein be rushing down to the bookies to place all his massive wealth on Modric being a Chelsea player by September 1st as he can get good oodds in his favour. After all,like Levy, these bookies are so inferior to the stunning abilityn of Bluevein. A true genius in his own delusion. LMAO at cretins.

      Look man. Just face the facts that Modric is gonna leave Tottenham one way or the other. Levy doesn’t hold any cards. He is only doing what any good sensible businessman would do in his position, bluffing. Yes. He’s bluffing so that he can squeeze more money out of AVB. Chelsea are desperate to get a midfielder like (Modric) and Levy knows that. He would want to oversell him so that they can reinvest the money received this window or the next (January). So that they can get back into the top 4 next season. So yes I would suggest we should bet on him joining Chelsea. We would surely win a lot. Because other ‘clueless’ Spurs fans (such as yourself) are putting their money on Levy when no one has a slight clue that he too wants to sell Modric.

        How does levy not hold the cards? He doesn’t have to sell. Modric is contracted for 5 more years? Levy could let him rot in the reserves if he wanted. I think Chelsea should put up or shut up. I don’t understand why Modric would want to go to a team that clearly under values him. Yeah I understand trophies etc etc but initial bid of £22m? Come on. Modric is still young and his price wouldn’t deplete over the next season so we can wait.

          Undervalues him? Give us a break! How much have you been paying him? Oooh..subtract the insane taxes and give an exact value, I dare you! We can then compare the 2 and see the hypocrite!

    Dias no beta creative midfielder in d whole world dat chelsea need at d moment oda dan luka modric. 1. Modric can patner well wif frankies cos he’s soo cr8v n selfless. 2. He’ll definitely free torres wif his splittin passes. 3. He can unluck a parkd defense n can also operate tru flanks, etc. Incredible player wif an eye 4 wonder goals. Go, get him AVB ure d face of premier league 2011/12

    Sorry Delboy, I too would be sore when your best player wants to go to a bigger, better team that can actually fulfill his competitive dreams. Tottenham doesn’t have a chance of getting back into the champions league, why would you want to keep a player that doesn’t want to play and will only be a shell of himself. It will only get worse and they will be forced to sell for less in January when both parties are at a standoff. Keep crying Tottenham fans!

    If you want more money, was that how mr levy was trained to ask to for more money? Arsenal wanted more money on fabrigas they went along and said it out…. This is getting out of hand
