Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has urged Luka Modric to leave Tottenham for Chelsea.
Spurs rejected bids rumoured to be £40million from Chelsea last season for the Croatian playmaker, but it is widely tipped that he will depart White Hart Lane this summer.
Why Ivanovic has decided to speak out on this is beyond us, maybe he should focus more on holding down a regular place in the Chelsea side. It’s laughable that Ivanovic should claim that Modric would be moving to a ‘bigger club’ at Chelsea, but then again he is probably unaware of the history and tradition of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
“I don’t know much about it other than what I read in the media,” he told Sportske Novosti.
“I know there was interest in the transfer window before. Chelsea as a team have needed a player with these qualities. He would fit in quickly and strengthen the squad.
“He has been in England a long time and knows about the way football is played on the island and the mentality of the players. He has exceptional quality, and moving to a bigger club is necessary for him to take the next step in his career.
“I think at Chelsea he would adapt instantly and become a better player. He should come to Chelsea – it won’t go wrong!”
