CONFIRMED: Redknapp – “Modric Will Stay” After Levy Talks
Daniel Levy has reiterated his stance on Luka Modric after the chairman contacted Chelsea to put an end to the speculation.
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.”
