Chelsea target £30m ‘world-class’ Modric replacement – report

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have targeted Franck Ribery as a last-minute replacement for Luka Modric, according to The Sun.

Ribery has been valued by Bayern Munich at £36 million, but Andre Villas-Boas is reportedly hoping to land the French captain for £30 million plus a £10 million a year salary.

Chelsea have been searching for a midfielder all summer, and were hoping that Tottenham would eventually give up Luka Modric. But after Harry Redknapp said today he was a million per cent sure the playmaker would stay at White Hart Lane, Chelsea have had to search for alternatives.

While Ribery has had a controversial past off the pitch, the 28-year-old is considered a ‘world-class’ player, and Chelsea are said to believe that the star will help them to win an elusive Champions League trophy next season.

Ribery is currently the highest paid player in Germany, and Chelsea will need to match the winger’s weekly salary if they hope to coax him into a move.
