Modric to Chelsea? Surely not!

Reports in one of today’s papers are linking Spurs midfielder Luka Modric with a £20million move to Chelsea.

Spurs fans will obviously discard this speculation as nothing more than a rumour.  Harry Redknapp is known to be a massive fan of the Croatian, and with a Champions League place secured for next season there is no way that he will sell Modric – especially for £20million.

The 24-year-old moved to White Hart Lane in 2008 for £16.5million and signed a six-year contract.  Manchester United are also said to be keen on his services.

WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON THIS TRANSFER RUMOUR?  WOULD YOU SELL MODRIC?

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Modric is a key member of Tottenham's team de force! The players' brilliance is because they have gelled as a team so we need to keep: Modric, Bale, Dawson, King, Gomes and quite a few others that have been rumoured to be of interest to the pillaging moneyed clubs.

    • "I have a very good source that reckons modric was seen in manchester late yesterday."

      I have a good 'source', too. Heinz Ketchup. Modric likes this much better than rainy Manchester…

  2. We are not guaranteed a CL place we will have to get through a nasty qualifier.

    If Chelsea offer 30 million he will be on his way mark my words.

  3. As you said in your article he cost us 16.5m and has 4 years left on his contract.

    We bought him as a player who was an international but playing for Dinamo Zagreb.

    Now he is proven EPL quality why on earth would we sell him for £3.5m more than we bought for him.

    I could imagine him being sold for £33 – £35m nothing less. Our chairman is still Levy right!!!

    More Daily star nonsense.

  4. HE IS PRICELESS WITHOUT HIM WE WILL STRUGGLE ,ITS LIKE ARESENAL WITHOUT FABREGAS OR CHELSEA WITHOUT LAMPARD, SO DON'T ENEN THINK ABOUT IT

  5. Where does this crap come from?
    Oh it must be true because this has come from that knowledgeable paper the Daily Star.
    Why would we sell an integral member of our team to a rival at a discount price of £20 million if we intend to make even more progress next season!!
    The gutter press should have to name their sources before writing this garbage just to try to increase their sales!!!!

  6. Why would we sell Modric it would mean we would have to replace him and even if we did get 30 mil for him who would we replace him with and at what cost.The cost would be more than 30 mil and probably mean a step backwards for the club.If you have a gem that your'e happy with why swap it for something inferior.He's the best midfielder I have at Spurs since Hoddle at 24 he is just going to get better and mark my words the goals will come…..He's going nowhere!

  7. This is what we are going to get all summer, no doubt tomoorow it will be us selling or buying someone else. Is it likely we would pay 18 mil for a player 2 years later after his best spell in the team we sell him to a rival for 20mil? I think not!!!!!

  8. when i grow up i want to be a football journalist mummy, it must be the easiest job in the world, all you have to do is sit at your desk dream up any bullshit & write it down especially in the months starting in may to august. 20 mil for mod i'm out of work at the mo i wonder if there are any jobs at this paper, i am sure i can bullshit better than that.

  9. This is just bullshit whenever we do well the press always trys to stir up shit about us, it's old and borning now

  10. Suspect this rumour was the masterpiece of NeilV who wants to generate some interesting debates during the off season of EPL. Just kidding NeilV. Thx for the hard work to keep this Spurs site alive.
