Daniel Levy, Tottenham chairman persists Luka Modric is not for auction 'at any cost' to Chelsea or anybody else


Daniel Levy Tottenham chairman persists that Luka Modric is not for auction – to Chelsea or anybody else – "at any value" after the Croatian disclosed in a selective interview with Telegraph Sport that he desired to shift to Stamford Bridge seeking of Champions League football.

Manchester City and Manchester United are also fascinated in Modric's signature though the player himself showed a wish to stay in London.


I would like to set out  to Chelsea," said Modric. "A numbers of players would like to shift there and play for Chelsea because it is one of the finest clubs in the world, and so do I, I would like to play there. But we will look what will ensure."

Chelsea had an offer of £22m from Chelsea dismissed out of hand by Tottenham this week, with manager Harry Redknapp making the figure "laughable". With Roman Abramovich slackening the purse strings at Stamford Bridge in search of a imaginative midfielder to undo his investment in Fernando Torres Chelsea are probably to come back with an enhanced offer.

However, Levy has issued an announcement telling Chelsea, and any other club following progresses, that they would be killing their time. "I desire to build it completely clear, as I have said earlier, that none of our main players will be auctioned this summer," said levy. "We are making a team for the future to constantly play at the superior level and keeping quality players is significant to that.

"In admiration of Luka Modric, we are not ready to auction, at any cost, to Chelsea Football Club or any other club."We designed our posture on this issue lavishly clear in writing to Chelsea. They select to disregard it and then made the bid public.

"For the evading of any ambiguity, let me restate that we shall not go into any discusions whatsoever, with any Club, on account of Luka.

"We now thin this matter shut down."

Modric signed a six-year deal last year, having inward at Spurs in 2008 for over £16 million from Dinamo Zagreb and has become the club’s most crucial player and is popular whole the Premier League and Europe.

Losing him would be a biggest blow both to the makeup of redknapp's side and the courage of a team who experienced a wonderful run in last season's Champions League but not succeed to meet the criteria once more in the season just closed, though the forceful tone of Levy's announcement advises his exit with not come about without a struggle.
