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.

You can have berbatov back if you want. He's surplus to requirement here

Yes, Berbatov, a great player who had his career ruined in Manchester.

Interesting that more Spurs fans comment than MUFC. Genuinely like Motormads comment. :)

I'd take a more pragmatic approach then some of my fellow spurs fans, I'd have Wellbeck (into last year of his contract) and Hernadez and say 20million squids just to seal the deal. Now am'nt I reasonable? COYS

Don't have that many poster's here at vital MUFC. Plus its not normally worth posting on modric due to the rants that some of the less level headed spurs fans tend to send in the minute modric is mentioned.

Do some of you fellas bite at every little thing Modric related? Can you not see when you're being wound up and when someone's fishing for spuds? Fair play to the spurs fans who have come here to actually discuss the transfer rumour and talk football rather than letting off another foul mouthed hysterical rant.

Don't want Modric, he's a quality player but doesn't reflect the proposed fee with his quality. Not too mention the lad is 27 or going to be 27 and realistically only has another 5 years at the top of his game before hitting the decline phase, that's not worth 40 mil. He doesn't reflect the quality for a player exchange either, I'd sooner see us keep all of our players par perhaps Anderson and Berbatov than lose them for Modric, not too mention none of them would want to join the spuds anyway. Some spuds may suggest otherwise but a plethora of our squad levy would jump at the opportunity of having, look at the way they jumped at zeki fryers, a good LB who has the potential to be a decent LB, that's it. Had enough of all the Modric related bull and the sooner he fecks off to wherever the better, as long as its nowhere near our club I don't care where he ends up. The media have linked us with him for ages yet whether never even made an offer for him, the stories and rumours are baseless.
