Speculation on Luka Modric signing for Chelsea continues to do the rounds, and today John Terry has spoken about a possible move for the Croatian, a move that excites the Chelsea Captain.
Terry is currently on tour in Asia as Chelsea prepare for their opening fixture tomorrow against a Malaysian All-Star XI, but taking time out to do the usual press interviews he had the following to say about Modric joining him at Chelsea.
“He’s a world-class player who is very difficult to play against. He’s agile, quick and a great finisher like we’ve seen over many years. We’ve got a good squad. If he comes, he could certainly add to that.”
Terry was quick to play down a possible move though by adding, “He has his own problems at the moment. It’s probably a little bit disrespectful to Spurs to talk about the situation”.
Perhaps Terry has had a word with Andre Villas-Boas about signing Modric, but as the manager has already stated he will not be making any moves in the transfer market until he returns to England. The transfer window in the UK does not close until 31st August so there is plenty of time left yet for any deal to be struck.
