First Spurs declaration that Luka Modric could be sold

Luka Modric - could be allowed to leave Spurs should the right offer be forthcoming.

Luka Modric could be sold by Tottenham Hotspur if an offer is forthcoming that meets the club’s valuation of the Croatian international, according to Spurs assistant manager Kevin Bond.

Despite Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s insistence that the player is not for sale “at any price” – Spurs have already rejected two offers from Chelsea this summer – Bond spoke to TalkSport on Monday and declared: “We desperately don’t want to lose him, but everyone has a price.

“If somebody came along and the money turns your head and he did go – although the chairman is adamant he doesn’t want to sell him – then we’d have to get on with it.

“Transfers are part and parcel of the game but you don’t want to lose your best players and he certainly is one of our best players.”

Modric is tied down to a long-term contract at White Hart Lane, having put pen-to-paper on a six-year deal last summer, however he has already made public his feelings about leaving the club, accusing Levy of going back on a gentleman’s agreement to sell him this summer.

Nonetheless, the Croatian has not handed in a transfer request and it’s felt that he will not force through a transfer in such a manner, such is his respect for his team mates and Harry Redknapp.
