Chelsea pile on players in Modric bid - reports

Published Add your comment

Chelsea’s efforts to sign Luka Modric have shifted up a gear, as the club considers a double player plus cash offer, according to The Guardian.

Tottenham have not budged an inch since the Blues started bidding for the Croatian, but the latest offer, which would see Salomon Kalou and Yossi Benayoun cross London to White Hart Lane, could be too good to turn down.

The extreme measure is an indication of Andre Villas-Boas’ determination to sign the midfielder, who he believes is Chelsea’s missing link in the middle of the park.

Previous offers for Modric have swung between £22million and £27million, but the money alone has not convinced Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to part with the playmaker.


The latest offer would also free up some space in Chelsea’s bulging squad, stripping away the surplus of attacking strength at Stamford Bridge.

But as the reports continue to pile up, Redknapp reiterated Tottenham’s firm stance on the Modric saga.

He said: "I don't know where it's at and Daniel has said all along that he is not going to sell Luka so that is probably it as far as I know. There is no sign of him going.”
