Modric Deal Draws Nearer

Yesterday we speculated that Luka Modric could be bound for Old Trafford.

The speculation brought no end of abuse from Vital Spurs regulars about it never happening.

Strange then that the tabloid press, like a dog with a bone, are refusing to let the matter drop and are of the opinion it is only a matter of time before a deal is struck.

Today the inference is that United will tempt Spurs to part with Modric in return for a fee of 25 million rising to 30 million dependent on appearances.

The deal would also see Modric pocket a cool 125,000 a week, making him one of the highest earners at United.

Now let`s see what those same Spurs lads have to say this time!

I'm still not sure why last year Levy turned down 40m and this year is happy to sell for 25m. I do think he'll go but not for less than 30-40m. Is he worth that? Probably not - but in a market where Andy Carroll is 35m you'd have to say it's what you'll need to pay.

Fergie always uses the sun to unsettle players. As if spurs would accept 25m for him ??? Insanity. We bought him for 17m. Personally i think he is well over rated and would be happy to sell as since xmas he has done sweet fa in a spurs shirt, but come off it guys, 25m ??? 35m and hes yours. The thing that is really annoying is the sun saying it is a done deal. That i very much doubt at that figure.

to me the only reason the red tops are running with this story is because red nose is doing his "lets get the papers to do my tapping up" yet again! the papers will run with this until modric says "its been my dream to sign for Manchester" then we'll be forced to accept your 30 mill cash up front while you accept a player who really isn't worth that much to you, he'll end up not being played and resent old red nose and then want to leave - not to mention of course the 10 mill manure will end up spending by way of a charity donation to stop THFC reporting them to the FA for tapping up AGAIN!!!

sound familiar yet again?

There are official ways to sign a player, why is it that clubs with money seem to think they are exluded from them?

This was only in The Sun; this is nothing more than speculation. I'm sure he will go this summer but not to an English club and for upwards of 35M. If Chelsea find out that he's going for 25M then I'm afraid you'll be priced out and we'll be laughing all the way to the bank. Love the guy but I think he's replaceable and if we can get someone who score more goals then I'd be pleased.

as most of the spurs fans here i do believe the deal will happen, but knowing levy i doubt it would be less than 35mil. My only hope is that a replacement has been found and can be brought in straight away along with other key transfers we need.

HAHAHA! The fact that the numbers are so small tells me that Man U don't have any money to spend, they are dreaming. FYI he doesn't want to live in Manchester. He likes London, hence he wanted to go to Chelsea. Man U will be like Liverpool in 10 years.

They might be able to bully the small clubs like Wigan but it will be a different story trying to bully us and Levy.. Claiming a deal is done for 25m is laughable and what you'd expect from this sad club. A deal is not anywhere near done and never will be for 25m.. Take your sad little bully boy tapping up tactics and try it with someone else. ANyway why would Modric go to a club that won nothing? I could understand if he went to city or one of the big boys abroad. but man yoo..???

Maybe I am stupid and do not know how to count to 50 million but is it not stupid to accept thirty million POUNDS and not 9 months earlier turn down 50 million POUNDS. I am sure that Levy being the man he is can tell the difference unless a few other players that might attract his attention are thrown in as top up to the original price. I cannot see this happen at the price stated. 20 million is too much to loose, and Levy is not in the loosing game.

You said it yourself that Tabloids are like a dog with a bone and won't let it go. We had it last year with Chelski and they said he would go, and very littlwe has changed this year. Just Manure are a bigger name and the Sun are the gutter press that if they say the same thing day in day out then someone may believe it. Certainly will not happen below 30-35m so getting him on the cheap would not be an option considering the drama of last summer.

Well Redboy, it's clear the secret to getting hits on VMU is to post something about the Spuds! Can't wait for the tabloids to start on the "Bale to Manchester City" stories, we'll have them crawling out the woodwork on VMC. :/
