Tottenham should not sell Luka Modric to Chelsea for less than £60million – that’s the view of former Spurs captain Graham Roberts.
Chelsea are rumoured to be considering making a final £35million take it or leave it offer for the Croatian international, but Roberts feels that Modric is worth far more.
He told the Daily Star on Sunday; “I don’t think £35m is enough for Modric.
“How much would it cost Spurs to get a replacement in for him?”
“He’s the best player at Tottenham so why should they sell their best player for £35m to Chelsea,” he said.
“If Chelsea want him they should pay £60-70m.”
Roberts added: “Every player can say, ‘Well if you don’t let me go I’m going to sulk’.
“But, if you let one player get away, you’re going to let lots of players get away with it.
“Somebody has got to make a stand and I think Daniel Levy is doing the right thing. If Levy lets Modric do what he wants this year, then it’ll be someone else next year who wants to leave.”
Roberts added: “Tottenham will then just be a selling club again and we don’t want to be a selling club, we want to be a top four club.”
