Kevin Bond says Spurs won’t sell Luka Modric after admitting “every player has his price”.
“For the purpose of clarification and in case my comments inadvertently misled anyone, the club’s position on Luka Modric is quite clear – we have no intention of selling him,” he said.
Earlier in the day Bond had told talkSPORT: “You don’t want to lose your best players and he certainly is one of our best players and we desperately don’t want to lose him.
“But I think everybody has got a price.
“If somebody came along – although the chairman’s adamant he doesn’t want to sell him and that’s great for us – and the money turns your head and he did go then we’d have to get on with it.
“But, at the moment, the chairman’s insistent he won’t let him go and we definitely don’t want to lose him anyway.”
Chelsea reportedly offered £22million and £27million for Modric in their previous bids.
“It’s a difficult situation, obviously. It’s well documented,” he said.
“But once we get to the end of the month then no one can go anywhere and we’ve all got to get on with it.
“On the one hand, the sooner it comes the better.
“But we’d like to do a little bit of work in the transfer market ourselves.”
