Bale: Spurs Will Be Fine Without Modric

By on August 23, 2011

Gareth Bale insists Tottenham will be fine if the club decides to sell Luka Modric to Chelsea.

The Croatian is rumoured to be on strike in an effort to engineer a move to Stamford Bridge, although Harry Redknapp disputed this claiming the player didn’t travel to Old Trafford due to his ‘head not being right’.

Modric has made no secret he wants to leave White Hart Lane this summer, but chairman Daniel Levy refuses to sell the midfielder. The Welsh winger claims Spurs’ will be fine without Modric, but hopes he decides to stay:

“Luka is a fantastic player,” Bale said. “I’m not sure what the situation is with him but I think if he is here then he’s great for the team, but if he’s not then we have to get on without him.”

    I’m losing more and more respect for Luka day by day. I think he knows by his reception by fans how much the fans think of him and HR has also talked of a new improved contract to replace his existing one that runs for 5 more years. If, even with a hug and cuddle from Levy to boot, he still ‘strikes’ then let him rot in the reserves. No fan will blame Levy as with financial rules on the way their model, with the exception of Utd, will soon not add up.

    some people are good in making stupid comments. Lets turn d tables around if luka was not performing well the club wont think twice in selling him now he is one of d best midfielders in d league, so he needs to play at d most top level which tottenham cant provide at the moment, they should let him go

    I think the point is that if the club were willing to sell and he did not want to go he could fall back on his contract and milk the money. The fact is he is under contract. To keep up a pursuit of a player the club have said is not for sale let alone given permission to talk to should plainly be penalised, unclear why it isn’t.

    Chelsea would be given permission to speak to Modric before 30th of August. Chelsea forever!

    If Levy keeps Modric captive Tottenham will lose out: they will lose Modric (mentally) and the cash to get new players. Where is the wisdom in that?

    Spurs have their own billionaire owner in Joe Lewis if they really believed in buying success thro splashing out 100m on 3-4 mercenaries. It’s one thing a player with 12-24mths left on his contact not wanting to sign a new one and therefore forcing thro a sale, eg Nasri, another a player reneging on a contract and throwing toys.
