Luka Modric - Tottenham Hotspur News

Andre Villas-Boas refuses to deny whether Chelsea will abandon their pursuit of Luka Modric.

He said: “I just have to speak to the owner (Roman Abramovich) when this kind of thing happens.

“When there’s an offer, there’s a counter-offer and then you reach an agreement.”

He added: “Modric’s name is already out too much in the press. Let’s leave it.

“He’s Harry Redknapp’s player. He’s not my player, unfortunately.”
