CONFIRMED: Redknapp – “Modric Will Stay” After Levy Talks

By on August 26, 2011

According to Harry Redknapp, Daniel Levy has reiterated his stance on Luka Modric after the pair met last night and insists the player will not be sold to Chelsea.

Modric has been linked with a mega money move to Chelsea all summer, with the Croatian offered a bumper pay package that would see the playmaker treble his wages.

However, despite the speculation that Chelsea would submit a third offer thought to be around £30million, Harry Redknapp confirmed Levy met with Modric last night and told him he would not be sold this summer. There is every chance the Croatian will be in the line-up to face Man City this weekend and Redknapp also praised the attitude of his playmaker:

“He’ll (Modric) be playing on Sunday for sure,” said Redknapp.

“I think there was a meeting. Daniel just said the same thing, he’s not for sale.

“It’s been difficult for him but we want him to stay and he will stay. He should be fit for Sunday.

“He could have kicked up and been a problem and if he had done it would have been difficult to keep him.

“If players want to be destructive they can be but he’s not got that in his nature.

“He’ll stay and play and will be great as he has been every other year.”

    Modric will not be helpful for spers after this all ups and downs. He should go and go where he want. One should not stop him if he is not willing to stay.

    The spurs chairman’s stance on modric is very strange he would risk playing a unmotivated uninterested player for the sake of pride and not wanting to be called a wimp by the spurs fans its not like he would be giving him away for free? No single player makes a team,the team should come first yes he signed a contract but he is not a slave to that contract spurs fan should wake up and understand that football is a business and that players are professional’s and they have ambitions aside from money but seeing that most spurs fans are dense and couldn’t care less they just don’t get it!.

    Players beware of the concentration camp called WHL, once you go in, you are sentenced for life.

    Harry was one of the managers i respected…modric saga makes him loose the respect i got 4 him. How could a coach be forcing(modric),admiting(levy’s stand) and willing to use an unhappy player. Wenger had to let fabregas and nasri leave because they are not happy…its how it works,u dont keep an unhappy player.

    Timlos – Modric signed a 6 year contract in 2010. He’s not a prisoner – he didn’t have to sign it.

    What’s the point of a contract if you can just walk away from it?

    It wouldn’t be right for a club to say “right, we’re tearing up your contract because you didn’t get us into the CL” – so why is right for a player to say the same to a club?
