Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas has told Real Madrid to forget about signing playmaker Luka Modric on the cheap, the
Spurs’ asking price is said to stand at £35m and Villas-Boas insists Modric will not be sold for anything less. He said: “There has been continuous interest from three different clubs in Luka. But it is important for Tottenham to hold onto their rights. His situation will continue as it is until the price is right.”
Modric is understood to be keen to leave White Hart Lane this summer and Madrid appears his most likely destination, but Tottenham are determined to receive adequate compensation for the loss of the 26-year-old Croatia international.
As Villas-Boas noted there are three main suitors for Modric. Real Madrid are well known to be amongst them and the Telegraph claims there other two are Tottenham’s Premier League rivals Manchester United, long-time admirers of Modric, and Paris Saint-Germain, the French side backed to the hilt by petrodollars.
Villas-Boas added that the club and Modric have been in regular dialogue and while they understand his desire to move on, Modric is equally accepting of the club’s need to obtain the best possible price.
