Chelsea fail with late Modric move

Chelsea have attempted an eleventh hour bid for Luka Modric, but it would seem, to no avail.

According to the Mirror, the Blues made an enquiry to Tottenham about the want-away midfielder with a structured deal offering £30 million and both Raul Meirless and Daniel Sturridge for the Croatian.

The Blues have been in the hunt for the 26-year-old since last summer but this fresh attempt to sign him appears to be in vain with the player himself opting for a move to Spain and is expected to fly to Real Madrid this week for a medical.

Modric has played 127 Premier League games since arriving at White Hart Lane in 2008, contributing 13 goals. Last year it looked certain that he would be on his way to Stamford Bridge but Harry Redknapp and Daniel Levy managed to persuade him to stay on for another year.

This time around the European Champions were a bit slow off the mark in terms of bidding for Modric and their former boss Jose Mourinho – who has pursued the playmaker all summer – looks set to seal a deal before the end of August.

Accept that bid, 30m plus a replacement n a decent striker that AVB already knows n likes, thats a no brainer n with the 30m buy Damiao, hell even if its 20m n them 2 accept it, its about the club now not the principle n thats a good deal, much better than the Real offer. Please Levy, if true just accept it n tell Real 40m pounds or no deal n Modric will just have to like it or lump it, he wont stay at Spurs so if Real is taken off the table he'll have no choice
