Modric Chase (Latest)

Modric Chase (Latest)

Andre Villas-Boas first press conference as the newly installed manager of Tottenham Hotspur enlightened us to the availability of a certain Luka Modric.

Villas-Boas seemed resigned to Modric leaving White Hart Lane but intimated that he`ll not be let go on the cheap, to any club interested, remarking to the assembled reporters,

"The interest Luka is getting from a number of different clubs is the same as he got last year. Luka is a player of major importance for the club and that`s why he attracts so many offers."

"It is in the hands of the chairman to accept the right proposition. Chelsea were involved last year so there is nothing new in the situation. There is interest and the player raises interest."

"If the player`s ambition is to move we can respect that."

"But there are club interests that the chairman will defend and only when the right offer is met, will there be more news."


It`d be interesting, I reckon, to test the water with a deal involving a part-exchange or two, just to see whether Villas-Boas can be tempted or whether the Portuguese coach has his eyes solely on a cash deal that would be used to bolster a side that were almost at the Champions League races for this season but not quite!

And who would you part-x?? Might take Rooney off your hands. You can keep the rest!

Test the water? You can't afford it. As for player exchange, there's Rooney, Nani and then what? Paul Scholes, Ryan Giigs and a packet of crisps

Firstly I don't think there is anyone in your team we would really want right now aside from Rooney as Yorkspur said, secondly Levy has made is perfectly clear that he will accept the 'Right Offer', which unfortunately for you is more money than you can afford and from a non-premier league team so I think your best off looking elsewhere.

You can't afford him. Forget player plus cash, they have too many variables that can scupper the deal and almost never happen, and I'm sure AVB wouldn't want to compromise his ability to choose the exact player he wants as a replacement. The only 2 clubs that can afford him in the prem are city and chelsea and I can't imagine we'd be willing to sell to chelsea and I can't imagine he's a player Mancini is interested in enough to pay the kinda money needed. I get the feeling it's Madrid (or at a very much outside chance PSG) or nothing.

As my colleagues have said, not sure he's in your price range. And can't think of anyone we'd want apart from Rooney... Evra maybe? I'm sure the board would rather he left for the continent, it's really not going to ne AVB's decision. In Levy we trust!

Shame in a way, because of all the teams chasing, you're need is by far the greatest.

United just cannot afford Luka Modric. Life's like that. Live with it.

It's just occurred to me that if you have 80000 but your tickets are half the price of ours, then I guess it's not that great an advantage.
