The Daily Star has claimed that Chelsea made a bid for Luka Modric that included £30 million in cash as well as Blues defender Alex.

Daniel Levy said no to the bid, and stuck to his principals, but the Tottenham chairman was reportedly tempted by the high amount of money that could be spent on bringing in new blood, along with bolstering Spurs’ defence.


Chelsea were desperate to get hold of Modric, and reportedly put three bids in that were turned down by Spurs, including one on deadline day.

The last, £30 million plus Alex, were Chelsea’s highest possible bid to bring Modric to Stamford Bridge, but Tottenham stood their ground and refused to deal with their cross London rivals.

Modric made his intentions to leave Tottenham for Chelsea clear during the summer, and details have emerged that the Blues were willing to increase his wages by £30,000 a week.

But Tottenham knew that with Modric holding a five year contract at White Hart Lane, they were in the winning seat to keep their top playmaker, and in the end Chelsea were unable to succeed in bringing the star across town.
