Chelsea are set to improve their offer to £30m for Spurs midfielder Luka Modric.
That is what is being reported in today’s Sun newspaper. If true it seems like a pointless bid by the Chelsea hierachy to increase their offer by just £3million after their £27million offer was rejected out of hand by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
According to the report, Chelsea are confident that they can land Modric for £30m and insist that they will not break the bank to land the Croatian.
The figure still falls way below Tottenham’s valuation of Modric.
When asked about Modric, Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay said: “I don’t like talking about players from other clubs. But that’s something we’ll look at during the week and we’ll take it from there.
“We really need to sit down with Andre and talk this through.
“Even though we’ve been travelling in the Far East for the past two weeks, you can still be active in the marketplace nowadays.
“The communication is always there with our guys back in London or wherever they are around the world.”
