Paris Saint-Germain interest in Modric plays into Tottenham’s hands

Paris Saint-Germain are considering making a £40m offer for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric, the Guardian has reported. The Croatia playmaker had appeared to have his heart set on a move to La Liga champions Real Madrid.

However, Modric’s proposed move to Spain has stalled over the price Madrid are willing to pay. The Guardian notes that Madrid’s offer has reached no higher than £31m, including add-ons, as the club argues Tottenham’s £40m valuation is no longer realistic now the player has made plain he wants to move on. Because of Modric’s clear discontent, Madrid believe the price tag on the player should drop accordingly.

Spurs disagree and chairman Daniel Levy is said to be holding out for what he sees the player’s true worth. Rather than provide Modric with a second escape route, as it is believed Modric is not interested in a move to Paris, the PSG offer has merely strengthened Levy’s case, the Guardian adds, as if the French side are willing to meet the asking price then Levy will argue there is no reason Madrid should not.
