Chelsea Back In For Modric

Chelsea are back in for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric and are trying to hijack Real Madrid’s move for the Croatian, but the player still wants Madrid

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Chelsea are once again linked with Luka Modric.

Chelsea are back in for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric and are trying to hijack Real Madrid’s move for the Croatian, according to the Mirror.

The report claims that the European champions have made a recent enquiry for the playmaker, and are hoping to use Tottenham’s interest in two of their players as leverage in a potential deal.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is understood to be interested in signing Chelsea duo Daniel Sturridge and Raul Meireles so the Blues were hoping to include the pair, plus a sizeable amount of cash, in their move for long-term target Modric.

However, it seems that even if Chelsea could strike a favorable deal with Tottenham the player has his heart set on a move to Madrid.

Real have been locked in negotiations with Spurs supremo Daniel Levy for weeks but have so far been unable to trash out a deal.

The Mirror claim fresh interest from Chelsea is unlikely to turn the Croatians head and Madrid will attempt to hold further talks with Levy and the 26-year-old to finally try and settle on a deal, with a view to flying the player out for a medical in Spain this week.

Spurs boss AVB is eager for the Modric-saga to be resolved soon so he can finally get his hands on funds to strengthen his squad with, and he will look to complete deals for Emmanuel Adebayor and Leandro Damiao, as well as move for Fulhams Moussa Dembele.

    Can,t wait to see the back of the little moody rat another piece of work like berbaimoff. Was he great for Spurs last season, no. Was he great at the euro’s, no. Is he of the Real standard I don’t think so. Let’s get whatever we can for him and get some real talent that wants to play for Spurs.

      lol cry some moar u butthurt spurs fan. ur club will be a joke without modric. he carried ur team last season and the only reason u failed miserably towards the end is because he was unhappy & the rest of ur team is useless. he was one of the best midfielders at the euros. how about u watch him take apart spain before u criticize his performance.

    Agreed 100% I thought the aim of transfer was to go forward not backwards! Meireles what happened to Porto’s João Moutinho??

    Presently we don’t need Modric at Chelsea
    we already hv some talented midfielders,
    Hazard, Oscar, Mata, Marin and many more.
    What we need now is not mid but striker,
    RB and a winger, it was last season we
    are badly in need of him not now, Danny
    can not go, he is young, he has a lot to
    offer to CFC. Up blues!!!

      Marin is an out and out winger. Hazard’s best position is on the right of a front 3, but Lille played him where he wanted behind a lone Striker. Oscar also plays behind the Striker. Comments that he can play anywhere in the midfield or forward line (bar striker) are just hearsay as yet, as he’s unproven there.

      I honestly agree…sturridge has great ability and Chelsea need to hold on to him. I feel that the Oscar purchase was so we could have a deeper creative midfield and in the very short time we saw him play he looked very good. Let’s get a rb and get on with the season

    Definitly it would be a dream come true for him to come to chelsea, Mereiles can go but Sturridge???????????.

    August 20, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    NO: d signing of oscar, marin nd eden in d middle re enough; d only thing on d list now is d strengthen of d right deffense nd that of striking force. Coz we lack those (2) as at now. Plz Roman should sign us cesar nd hulk. God bless all chelsea’s fans nd d players.

    Honestly, am sick and tired of this transfer issues, chelsea officials re dulling, i dont think they re serrious in business, though u added new guys in our squad but thats not enough if realy we want to close the gap that both the manchester cities gave us last season. Lets reason in one accord, we need modrich very much dearly, take this free imformation, the only reason strikers die at chelsea is cos we dont hve a natural midfilder, pls modrich or any of his typ can serve, then one sharp striker and ryt bak, and moses is a must buy player if we must be happy. Even my blood is blue

  16. Moses Daniel

    August 20, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    yes, we dnt need him now, we hav more than enough in dat postion nw, all we want 2 cee nw iz RB & a striker ppl lik cavani or moses

    We do need Modric!! Chelsea shud do wateva it takes to get him!

  18. Ndu. O

    August 21, 2012 at 12:00 am

    Modric is too expensive both in weekly payment nd transfer cost price, i even prefer Felani or Moutinho to Modric nd I also prefer Falcao to Hulk nd Cavani

  19. Ndu. O

    August 21, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Pls Robert Mateo dnt let Sturridge go, dat guy is stil a young talented boy, he stil has a lot giv chelsea, instead of selling him is beter u sit him down as a coach nd advise him on his selfish play nd i hope he wil understand, Sturridge is one of d best young strikers in England, pls let’s reason wel b4 we mak another mistake as we made b4 by selling Arjen Ruben

    I guess we all have different opinions on who shud come in @ chelsea! But those who wanna c Modric at Stamford Bridge u have great minds coz u can envision the dimension he wil give us!

    we have a lot of talented mildfilder in the likeness oFHazard,mata, Oscar and marko marin and will can also add modric to make our team strong as manchester city. but let also talk about striker although Torres will be there for us this season scoring from any angle and any time but what about if he had injury and let Moses be there for us.

    This could be great news that finally gets the deal done with Real. Levy will not sell to Chelsea but as Abramovic is so used of his filthy, blood-soaked bribery garnered money getting him what he wants he’ll keep coming back and players in demand always go for more dough. If the retarded Modric had just played along with the PSG link he’d have got his move to Real already, as Levy would have got what he wanted in the auction. It’s frustrating because we can’t buy Modric’s replacement till he’s gone (as Real will then know we need to sell and turn the hardball tables on Levy) so we just have to sit it out.

    of course we need him, everyone need him!! spurs fans can cry but we canot help, we can get or maybe not..

    cech
    ivanović luiz terry cole
    MODRIĆ lampard
    ramires hazard oscar
    torres
    and this is the strongest team in europe

      Get a grip. You’re suggesting Cech, Luiz, Terry, Oscar and Torres are the best in Europe in their respective positions? Jesus. You lot are mental.

    I don’t know what’s more laughable, the Chelsea fans on here making the assertion you don’t need Modric because you have Mata, Hazard, Marin and Oscar (COMPLETELY different players and positions to Modric, do your homework) or the appalling spelling and grammar used to express such drivel opinions.

    Plz we dont need attacking midfielder any more we are having lot of qualities in attacking midfielder…we need striker, RB n defensive midfield.
