According to the Daily Mail, Spurs are putting pressure on Modric a pen a new contract, and have offered him £100,000-per-week to stay at White Hart Lane.

The Croatian playmaker, however, is said to be waiting until the end of the season before committing to Spurs, while Chelsea and United are known to be keen.

Chelsea tried desperately to bring Modric to Stamford Bridge during the summer, and had as many as three separate bids rejected by Spurs.
