Modric to Quit

The tabloid press are insistent that Luka Modric and Spurs could soon be parting company.

Having resisted the overtures of Chelsea, last close season, Spurs could be set to find that Modric wants out and wants to play in the Champions League.

With United having already signed Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell, although the latter is more of one for the future, could Sir Alex Ferguson become embroiled in the chase for the Croatian which is set to include, if the tabloid press are right, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid?

First!!!! Well he will not be going to united or any other Prem Team and as a Spurs fan I would be happy for him to go to Real Madrid and think our relationship with them will benefit us as I'm sure we can wrangle a player or 2 from them...ala VDV and Sahin
Whitehart Lad
Obviously we already have VDV I meant as an example we got VDV for a steal and I'd expect us to be able to do good business with them as a result of selling the, Modric
Whitehart Lad
Modders is on a 4 year deal, he aint gong anywhere again. Why would Levy let him leave this year when he wouldn't last.
Horny Helen
@WHL, what makes you believe he won't go to another Prem team? Is it a case of you don't believe Levy will sell to another Prem team? Luka himself made it fairly clear last summer that he was willing to move to Chelsea. Btw if.Sahin ismade available then you can be guaranteed that Spurs would have serious competition for his signature.
Bluedub
@Bluedub, because Modric is a on a 4yr deal, Levy decides who Spurs accept offers from, and I doubt a Premiership team will accept having to pay a premium. And like when Athletico sold Torres to Liverpool, Sahin could be sent the other way in part exchange.

Can't see Sahin leaving Madrid yet, doubt Madrid are stupid enough to sell a player of his quality due to a slow start which even then has only been down to injuries. Can't see Madrid going for Modric either really, he's a great player but certainly not one they need and as such I can't see them spending 30+mil on a position they don't really need to strengthen. Feck knows where Modric is going to go but I highly doubt it's going to be us. PSG, Malaga or Anzhi maybe as I'd imagine they're the only ones willing to pay the fee Tottenham want for him and need strengthening in midfield more desperately than ourselves and can offer him Champions League football. If we were really out for a midfielder I'd sooner see us go for M'Vila, Martinez or Strootman before Modric. Belhanda done a great job in Ligue 1 last season and looks like a quality playmaker and he will cost a fraction of the price Modric will demand.
TheFamousNo7
Fair enough kernow, I was just trying to establish whether WHL believed that Modric wouldn't join another PL club out of some sort of loyalty to Spurs. Sahin will receive offers from clubs that will blow Spurs out of the water on wages if there's a hint that he's available. I rate him as better than Modric and am surprised that he's not U*d's target ahead of Modric.
Bluedub
Bluedub, we hold all the cards and doubt levy would allow our prized player to go to a rival. Unless united offered an offer not to be refused then I doubt it would happen. We can still keep him for 2 more years and still be in a decent position to make decision on who and when we sell
Whitehart Lad
This is GREAT News. 31m for Berbatov, 20m for carrick and now 45m for Modric LOL. He'll add nicely to the other 2 flops. I wonder how berbatosser is feeling now
The Saint.
TheFamousNo7, I agree they won't sell Sahin, but I wonder if they might let us (Spurs) take him on a year long loan as part of the transfer to help him establish himself after his injury hit season. If Levy feels he can't keep Modric another year that's a solution that could well benefit all parties since we could put it all the transfer fee towards improving our attacking options whilst giving us time to look for a replacement for Modders. Either way I really can't see him going to you, I think Levy would rather take a hit on the transfer fee than do that.
flipper
Hmm could potentially happen flipper and whilst it makes sense I wouldn't hold my breath on it, it's Real Madrid afterall and that place is a circus. I think if Madrid are truly interested and they were offering you a player plus cash deal for Modric I'm sure it's more than likely they would offer you Granero and/or Diarra, doubt you'd be too interested in that sort of offer though.
TheFamousNo7
If I may say the point many people have missed is any transfer of Modric will not happen simply because the Berbatov transfer upset Levy and Spurs so much. I know Spurs felt Manure and Old Rose Nose behaved so badly over the transfer that Levy has said he does not want to deal with Manure again. Also as has been said by many of my fellow Spurs fans, Levy will not sell Modric, Bale, etc. to another PL club. Manure fans should remember that I will not forget that Old Red Nose refused to sell Gabriel Heinze to Liverpool for about 8m but sold him to Real Madrid for about the same fee. I am sure if Spurs do decided to sell Modric it will not be to Manure, end of subject!
