Chelsea have made a new bid for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric, despite Spurs boss Harry Redknapp claiming no deal would be done earlier today.
BBC journalist Ian McGarry claims that Andre Villas Boas will offer £30m and Florent Malouda in part exchange for the Croatia international playmaker, but Tottenham will only accept the deal if Drogba is included instead of Malouda.
The swap seems unlikely on a number of levels.
This morning, Harry Redknapp claimed, “Luka Modric is not for sale, he’s not going, which is great.
“One million per cent he’s not going.”
Earlier this week, Andre Villas Boas was similarly bullish on the future of Malouda.
“Let’s speak about the number that Malouda has made for Chelsea.”
“We can’t let ourselves sell talent of this quality.”
What’s more, Didier Drogba said this month that he intends to finish his career at Stamford Bridge.
But apart from those three factors, there seems no reason why this wouldn’t go ahead…
