Chelsea prepare final Modric bid

Tottenham are made the 3/10 betting favourites to retain the player

Chelsea are preparing to test Tottenham’s resolve to hang on to Luka Modric one final time with a player-plus-cash deal.

The Blues, who recently brought in Juan Mata from Valencia, are reportedly preparing a bid of £30 million plus midfielder Yossi Benayoun for the Croatian playmaker.

Modric missed Tottenham’s opening game of the season at Old Trafford on Monday because manager Harry Redknapp believed that “his head was not right”. However, the Spurs boss is confident that he will hang on to his star player.

“The situation is he is not for sale,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“The chairman has made that clear and even yesterday when I did speak to him he said Luka definitely wasn't going, and that was the end of the matter as far as he was concerned.

“He's got to start playing now. That's what we need.”

Tottenham are made the 3/10 betting favourites to retain the player’s services while Chelsea are priced at 9/4 in the Luka Modric transfer betting market.
