The Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric is not at all happy that the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has gone back on his promise to the Croatian last year that he could leave for a “bigger club” if a suitable offer came in.
“I reminded the chairman of our gentleman’s agreement when we were in Dubrovnik last summer and I agreed a contract extension with Tottenham,” Modric said in a Croatian newspaper.
“At that time, I had an open chat with Levy – that if a bigger club came in with a concrete offer, we would consider it and agree the best solution for all concerned.
“Now Levy doesn’t want to talk to me and said there is no possibility that I can leave Spurs. He threatened me – he said if I didn’t accept the club’s stance, they would make me sit on the bench or in the stands.”
And he says that Levy gave a “twisted account” of their conversation to the press the other day, when Levy told him to forget about leaving and made his threats.
“A lot has been published in the press about the meeting with Levy, who gave the public a twisted account of what happened. I must say that I am genuinely disappointed about what Levy said to me. He didn’t care about what I was telling him. It all only convinced me further that I was right to consider moving on to another club,” he said.
“I hope that eventually he will understand the situation and that we will reach an agreement and go our separate ways in an appropriate manner.”
Modric now wants the situation resolved as quickly as possible after he decided to join Chelsea after a lot of soul-searching and discussions.
“There is no doubt that Chelsea want me – they sent a concrete offer to Tottenham,”.
“I know that the new Chelsea boss (Andre Villas-Boas) said he wants me in his team. Of course I am flattered by this interest in me – it’s a club that all players dream of joining, fighting for every competition available.
“It wasn’t a snap decision – I talked a long time with my family and people whose opinions I respect. I thought about it, weighed it all up, and finally decided this was the best option,”
Actually Luka I just have to agree with you! Chelsea is definitely the best option!
levy should let luka modric go to chelsea pls
I think it’s high time T’ham will let this guy go if not they will not see the best of him next season. That was arrogant of Levy to have threatened Modric.
Whoever know levy should kindly tell him to allow modric to leave since the best offer has been table by chelsea.
Levy you want to betray this guy. You sign an agreement with him and you don’t want to keep the agreement. LET LUKA MODRIC GO!
Spurs r a small club, levy shud accept that…..THANK YOU MODRIC FOR MAKING YOUR STANCE KNOWN, COME TO CHELC, LAND OF CHAMPIONS,
The ‘agreemen’ was for a bid that met Spurs valuation. £22m is nowhere near what the market would be and way off what Spurs would be prepared to sell for.
Until a club offers a sensible sum there should be no issue.
This is Modric and Chelsea trying to pull one over the eyes or Spurs to let him go on the cheap.
Good on Levy to make a stance.
No point increasing wages to £90k just spend the money on somebody else and sell Modric to an overses club or let him sit on the reserves bench.
Levy should let Modric go to chelsea since dats wat the player wants.Of what use is a player to you when he is sitting in the stands.LEVY,LET LUKA MODRIC GOOOOOOOOOOOO.
