Yesterday we brought you the news that Chelsea could make one final bid for Spurs midfielder Luka Modric, a bid that was rumoured to be in the region of £35million plus Daniel Sturridge.
Well Harry Redknapp has been speaking to Sky Sports about the possible bid, but he thinks that it is nowhere near enough as he had the following to say. “If we were looking at selling, it wouldn’t be my valuation. I think he is worth an awful lot more money than that.”
Redknapp went on to add, “But we are not looking to sell Luka. We need to keep our best players, so he is a player we want to keep if possible.”
Earlier in the year Redknapp said that he would not sell Modric for £100million, but the final decision rests with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.
Spurs fans will hope that their chairman keeps Modric, but Chelsea fans are desperate for a quality midfield player before the season starts. They may well have to turn their attentions elsewhere as Spurs and Redknapp will do their best to keep Modric at White Hart Lane. Roman Abramovich the ball is now in your court.
