Today’s press reports are claiming that Manchester City are set to enter the race to sign Luka Modric.
Although it could very well be paper talk about City ready to start the bidding at £30million for the Spurs midfielder – surely Daniel Levy will do all he can to hold onto the little Croatian, selling arguably our most influential player to City would be committing Champions League suicide.
Yes City have the money and the lure of Champions League football but just like they have done to us previously, we cannot sell to a club who we are competing against for a spot at Europe’s top table next season.
Chelsea and Manchester United are also both said to be monitoring the situation but City are prepared to treble Modric’s £55,000-a-week salary.
Modric said recently: ‘If there will be an offer which will be good for Tottenham and for me also, then a transfer is of course possible.’
