£40m Chelsea playmaker target showing his worth

Kevin Bond believes that Luka Modric has proved his worth for Tottenham, since the transfer tussle surrounding a possible move to Chelsea.

Modric had made clear his intentions to leave the north London club in the summer, but Daniel Levy held firm and kept the playmaker, despite bids of up to £40 million coming through on deadline day.

While Chelsea had been desperate to land Modric, and Modric hopeful of a move to Stamford Bridge, Bond insists that now the Croatia international is completely committed to Tottenham.


“It’s a mark of the man,” Bond said. “He did have his head turned for a while and you can understand it with the sort of numbers that were being bandied around.

“But it hasn’t happened for him, he’s got his nut down, he’s got a smile on his face in training and you can see from the performances that he wants to be here, he’s happy to be here.

“That’s great credit to Luka Modric because I’m not sure that others would have taken it in that way. It’s brilliant for everyone involved at Tottenham.”

Modric opened the scoring for Tottenham on Sunday against Liverpool last week, and while Chelsea inevitably failed in their pursuit of the star, it was clear to see why they chased so hard to get Modric on board.

Chelsea have now reportedly turned their heads to other midfield targets, with Sami Khedira the latest to be connected to a move to the club.
