Modric to Quit

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

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

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.

@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, 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.

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, 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

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

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.
