Blues consider Drogba deal to encourage Spurs sale

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba could be used as a pawn in a deal to land Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Luka Modric reports the Daily Mirror.

The 33-year-old Ivorian international's future has been in doubt ever since the arrival of £50million striker Fernando Torres in the January transfer window.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is a known admirer of Drogba's talent, and is looking to add another striker to his White Hart Lane squad.

After missing out on Champions League qualification last season, Redknapp has emphasised the importance of keeping his star players together, and so has ruled out a summer sale of £30million-rated Modric.

In addition to Chelsea, Modric is thought to be a reported target for Manchester United, but it is Blues owner Roman Abramovich who is making plans to entice him to Stamford Bridge this summer.


Having expressed his desire to return to the Champions League next season, Modric's Tottenham future remains uncertain as Chelsea look to capitalise by stepping up their player pursuit.

Modric appears to have been identified as the player Chelsea believe would best unlock Torres' goalscoring instincts at Stamford Bridge next season.

And Drogba could be added to the mix as a temptation to produce a change of heart over Modric from Tottenham.

Redknapp has promised that Spurs do not intend to let either Modric or Gareth Bale leave this summer, with the White Hart Lane boss arguing that his squad needs to be bolstered to get back into the top four, rather than weakened by deals that would signal the true ambitions of the club.
