'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Thank you Luka!

We adored our little maestro, perhaps more than any other foreign player to grace White Hart Lane both past and present. He has royally screwed us! There is a way of going about business but the guy just has no class!

Last season within hours of the first Chelsea bid and Luka is releasing press statements expressing his desire to leave the club. He had only just signed a 5 and a half year contract just 6 months prior! He talks of a gentlemens agreement between himself and Levy but I don't buy a single word of it, why? Because it wasn't in his contract and if it's something he wanted there would have been a high valuation placed in the said contract allowing him to leave for the righ price.

This is where I have lost all and any love for a player I once adored. If he goes about business in the right way then we can get a very good fee for him. Ronaldo is slated for his conduct on the field but off the field I had nothing but respect for him and the way he conducted himself! Fergie asked him for one more season and nearly 50 goals later, a CL final, an EPL title and 70-80 million later everyone left happy. Both clubs, players and fans.

We as fans and as a club that took a huge gamble and record transfer fee on a player that was deemed by all as to lightweight for the league deserve far better than this! Now it's almost impossible to drive his price up and in all probability we see less money than Arsenal do for a player who has just 12 months left on his contract!

If he had just behaved with a little class then maybe we could of held the same love for him that United fans still have for Cristiano.

Has he not gone yet?
Wilts Spurs
Greetings to all of you beautiful Lilywhites out there!Up the Spurs!
MAN ON!
Disappointed.
Madaboutspurs
Levy should have put a fee on his head last summer, say £50m. We would have got it and massively strengthened the team as a result. This summer it should have been made clear to Modric if we don't get a bid of £40m by the end of July 31st he's not going anywhere. Yes, Modric is greedy scum. But that is the starting point for all footballers. We just need to manage it. For the 'Levy can do no wrong' brigade, I would brace yourself for Berbatov 2 and a shaky start to next season as a result.
StillRickyVilla
He has been a good player for us but until the valuation is met he can't leave. The media are not helping by spinning the situation and I am not sure of what truth there is the refuse to train/fly etc stories; however I feel we need to buy 2 strikers and then recoup the money from Modric sale later. If Modric head not right until September like last year we can cope. However facing 3 games in Aug/early Sept with only defoe up front and we may be calling for help to avoid relegation.
Wilts Spurs
Im hearing that Luka may be able to buy out his contract with 3 years remaing or £6.2m if this is true the the shift in power will have gont to the player and Levy wll now have to accept defeat and get as much for him as possible, as long as it is outside the Prem. Also hearing AVB wants to part ex with one of RM's young forwards .......................also there is a massive Spurs fans premierleague fantasy football league pin is 64543-21593
Whitehart Lad
Look - Luka i agrea player & I wish he had stayed with us. However, I also understand that we did NOT get into the Champions League & so, Modric was always going to go. He is not a fan, this is his job and hewants more money, a new cllenge & to compete at the top. I don't want him in the USA if he is not part of our plans. I want Levy to sell abroad & get top dollar to re-invest. However, there is some balance needed as if this runs and runs, it could cause distractions and we have had a positive few weeks till now. Do it quick Levy & sell abroad. Am I disappointed at Luka leaving the AVB revolution - massively. Do I hate him for going or even 'having' to force a move, NO - because that is press talk up to now. More interested in getting players (STRIKER please) quick, which means Luka out quick. Strategy must be quick & abroad.
Windlespur
is a great .....
Windlespur
don't sell now let him play for spurs or let the rat rot.play him at his own dirty game.not for sale.
bazdog
They come, they go, the Cock still crows, move along now sunshine, sign the replacement quickly please. I'd be suprised if Moutinho wasn't already looking at London properties.
Manx Yid
Its no different to Berbatov. I really don't understand why fans seem surprised that players don't have the same feeling for the club they do. For the player its just about money. The key difference between Modric and Ronaldo is that with Ronaldo Madrid wanted him badly enough to pay whatever it cost. With Modric they want him if they can get him cheap.
jod
You don't think Levy is to blame for ANY of this, no? He is not worth £40m, simple as. Aguero didn't even cost City £40m. £27-£30m should be more than enough but your chairman is too tight to see sense. Great player but valuation is retarded. Don't pin all the blame on a player who has done brilliant things at your club.
rojo2010
As much as we all love (loved???) Modric - i would'ent say he was the most adored foreign player for us. Klinsmann, Ginola, Atouba will always belooked upon in much better ways!
Yid
Levy proved last summer that he won't let Modric go unless the price suits us. I can't see how that should upset anyone at all. Modric signed a 6 year contract of his own free will 2 years ago (I don't think Levy put a gun to his head). It has been made absolutely clear to all involved parties that we will let Modric leave with our blessings if a price of £35m or upwards is met. If it isn't then Modric will remain at the club. For once this seems a very clear and simple position. There is no confusion or ambiguity. If Modric continues his supposed self-imposed 'strike' then he won't help his cause one little bit. Levy has proved he holds the cards and is stubborn enough to sit on Modric untill the terms suit Spurs. And quite right he is too! If Modric and his team of representatives have even half a brain between them then they should be frantically trying to encourage Real Madrid to offer £35m or they need to advise Modric to cut his wage demands so the overall deal becomes affordable for Real Madrid bearing in mind they WILL have to pay us at least £35m. The likelihood of agents talking down their client's wages (and by doing so their own fees) is most unlikely. However, in the case of Levy he has already proved that he will not budge. I am absolutely certain that he will let Modric sit in the stands next season if that is what happens rather than let him leave on the cheap. It wouldn't be ideal for the team and it wouldn't help us maximise the return we get from any future sale of Modric if that happens but Levy is hard-headed and stubborn enough to do it.
SpuriousLife
I dont believe anything the Press spin. Who's to say he is not on the plane to the U. S because Madrid requested he didnt because the Deal is done? Lets just wait and see.
Spurstrings
Whitehart Lad - I doubt the truth in that otherwise he would have already done it and Tevez would most likely have done the same thing previous.

At the end of the day, Luka is under contract, a contract that he and his agent quite happily reviewed and signed quite happily. If a player has the right to use a contract when it suits them (injuries) why should a club be bullied into allowing a player to break the legislation when it does not?

I'm quite happy for Spurs to make an example and sacrafice 27mil disciplining Modric. He is tarnishing his own career and only has himself to blame for not conducting a professional approach to the situation. We understand Modric is looking out for his best interest (even though they changed from a 6year deal at Spurs to a transfer request within 6 months) but the club also has to protect itself.

People say that "holding Modric to ransom" is cutting our noses off to spite our faces, but i firmly believe if we allow this transfer to take place solely on the basis because Modric wants it, we open the floodgates for abuse. Players will make similar demands knowing that their are no reprocussions and Spurs will be a toy or stepping stone for players to use and abuse as and when they choose.

Modric adhere to your legal obligations or suffer the same fate as Tevez. There will be no way back into the good books if you refuse to play and you will essentially ruin your career in the process.
RyanHotSpur
Manx according to spanish and protugese press (more so in Spain I think) Moutinho is in advanced talks with Spurs which is maybe why we are draging the Luka thing out until we have a deal agreed and in place to sign Moutinho. Not sure how much of that is true but lets keep fingers crossed
Whitehart Lad
I don't care if he leaves for nothing in 2016. Levy should stick to his guns. If he refuses to play, I am sure he does not need to get paid. Windlespur - yeah he wants to move on. That is cool. But you can do things the right way. Spurs have indicated they are prepared to sell. Has Modric for starters even handed in a proper transfer request. Chances is no since he wants his cut!
spurs_sa
It's just a bloody shame we were not able to say bye to Luka who has been a superb player for us. He is getting shafted by Levy who convinced him to sign a 4 year deal so his stock woould rise, now he is playing around with hsi future. Imagine you wanted to go to a new job and your bos was been arsey with you just to prove a point. So I hope you get the move you want Luka and hope you are successful as I am sure you will be. Good luck wee man!. Now lets worry about the players we do have and who will be representing us in the prem next season.HHXX
Horny Helen
The Luka saga stinks of an underhand agent being involved. A big pay day that they are after i think.
Mickeys1969
Most adored foreign player. Surely Ossie!
Darbinho
I don't believe a player should hold a club to ransom, but then an unhappy player at a club will potentially cause more problems than it's worth. Therefore, sell him to the highest bidder, doesn't matter where, what matters is the value as this is re-investment funds. Let him go to Chelski, Manure, Citeh, P$G or Madrid. Let him learn the hard way, because he will quickly become another fish in another pond rather than one of the biggest fish in a pond. Do you really think Modric will go to Real and become the main man? If he want to earn big money for being a bit part player then let him go, he could have been a legend at Spurs and with the AVB revolution who really knows whether he is making the right decision???
yiddyboy
Instead of unleashing the media on a frenzy of speculation - why don't we just come out and make a formal club statement that there is a deadline of 31st July for a bid to be received of £35m. If we receive it he can go. If we don't he stays for another year. Then its a black and white issue. We hold all the aces here i don't know why we are letting the media speculation bully us and unsettle our pre-season preperations.
StillRickyVilla
rojo2010 - A players valuation is based on the need to keep that player at the club and how much someone is prepared to pay. Wether or not Modric is worth 30mil to Madrid, the cost of replacing would exceed 30mil so ofcourse this is a minimum in the sellers eyes. Nothing is retarded about that apart from someone that can't grasp that. RVP is being sold at 20mil+ with 1 year on his contract. He is in demand for having one good season but a terrible Euros. How do you work that one out?
RyanHotSpur
I'm sorry guys but there are ways of doing things honourably. Look at Michael Carrick. He really was the heart of our midfield at the time. ManU came knocking and he said, "I want to play for them. I've got a year left on my contract. If you don't sell me now, I'll stay at Spurs and give them 100% in every game but I'll leave on a free when my contract is up. Or you can sell me now and make money on the deal." (Which we did and made £18m I think.) An honourable player who did exactly what he said and didn't spit his dummy out. LUKA TAKE NOTE.
spurboy61
Levy will stand firm on this if Real don't match the price. With a four year contract of just £40K per week, we can afford to let him rot in the reserves. And if he's disruptive, we'll just keep fining him! No-one is bigger than this club. COYS!
ParkLane67
FREEDOM FOR LUKA MODRIC HAHA
Rip The Reds Apart
This is all thanks to Florentino Perez. The slimiest football President this side of the Atlantic! He's a property developer for christs sake, how can anyone expect him to behave with decorum! He is agitating Modric to make a stink. They will pay eventually, just want to create a big saga about it so he seems to have 'won', once he gets his man. Perez will pay more or less Levy's asking fee, this is just public grandstanding! Luka is a silly boy, but we must never forget that we purchased him, he is not English, has not supported Spurs his whole life and no player alive would be able to turn down Madrid. He is being poorly advised right now, and should begin training immediately, but I do have to give him credit for the way he got on with it after last summer. Leaving Spurs for a bigger club is much more acceptable, leaving Chelsea wouldn't of been!
Tactically Challenge
There is a report that we are in advanced negotiations for Moutino. If true then most of what we hear reported is probably b*llocks and the Modic deal is also being thrashed out.
BigSpur
Anyone else hearing the rumours that Levy may have to step down for a while whilst he attends to his wife in the states? Not sure if this is more ITK bull cr*p but I wonder if this will have an effect on the Modric saga?
Milestones
Most beloved foreign import...I dont think so! His stock with fans dropped last year pushing for a move and now going on strike( maybe ) this year looking to leave again. Not a bit of class...just another mercenary. Look back at Ossie Ardiles and there you will see one of the most loved foreign players we have ever had.
CapeVerdeSpur
La le la la La le la la...hey hey you ugly madder facker! This piece of ***** gettin on me tetz. If i was Levy i would make an official statement now to the public 35mill deal or no deal. If Real dont want to pay more than 27 i would also make it public that Real Madrid deal is off. Why the fack PSG and Man City all quiet on this now that we are ready to facking sell! COYMFS!!!
JattYid
We need to have Moutinho or whoever lined up as well as Adebayour and possibly 2 other strikers with the Modric money. Its a complex situation because obviously Porto etc themselves will want to get in their replacements and intergrate their teams. The worst possible outcome is we hold on until the 31st Aug and get say £30m as a compromise and a couple of loan signings to tide us over. i.e Fraizer Campbell and Rasiak!
StillRickyVilla
Does Pat Jennings count as foreign?
RyanHotSpur
JattYid - Have City ever wanted Modric? PSG have made pretty big signings already.
RyanHotSpur
rojo, we all know that players are not worth the money paid, but it comes down to replacement cost. If we have to pay 30m for unproven PL Moutinho then Modric is worth more than that and we should hold out for it under his 4 years still to run contract.
COYS R US
Ha Ha rojo thats why were one of the most financially sound clubs in the world!!!!!!!!
Whitehart Lad
I cannot believe some people on here are actually sticking up for Modric. I couldnít give a flying phuck if itís his agent thatís telling him not to train etc he has a brain and makes his own decisions. How is Levy holding Modric to ransom?? He has put a very fair price on his head, considering he has got 4 years PL experience, is in his prime, has CL experience IS CONTRACTED FOR ANOTHER 5 YEARS and has just had a fantastic Euros. We are being quoted upwards of £30m for players who (as harry rightly said) couldnít lace Modric boots. Why should we bend over and take it again. If real want him as much as they seem to then just pay the money

It seems that they donít want to trade any of their decent players either, ok Higuain turned us down but according to the people who know, we have treid top include 3-4players as part of a deal, and Madrid have said no to all of them. They think they can get away with £20m+ Carvallo FFS!! TBH the way they are acting says to me that they arenít that bothered about him, and its more Luka agent thatís pushing for the deal!!

Anyway, the Modric situation simply cannot rule our whole transfer window which it seems to be doing. First pre season game tomorrow and we have Defoe and Kane as our options. I really feel sorry for AVB if this is how we are going to start the season. We need at least 3-4 more players to give him the best chance. WE HAVE NO PHUCKING STRIKERS!! This is starting to remind me of typical phucking spurs.
hudderspur
Most loved foreign import? Perhaps we should have a poll. My vote would go to David Ginola. Great to watch, always loyal, and always more than happy to sign autographs, chat with the fans or pose for photos. I'm afraid Modders is not fit to lace his boots!
ParkLane67
He never has to kick a ball again for spurs and still conduct himself in a decent manner. He could have tolled the AVB that he wouldn't be travelling so at least they could cook a cover story to show harmony in the squad. His attitude really seems to be at odds witht he rest of the squad. I for one don't understadn it, the club will let him go, but we need a valuation closer to what we want will we get 40 million for him no but you can;t really negoiate when your commodity behaves like this.
Slurms McKenzie
Ryan since when do Man City buy players they need, they the sorta club that pounces on any world class talent! Not as if they really need Van Persie but i presume they will. Point is the year we actually willing to sell a sellable asset none of the big spenders are coming forward!
JattYid
Also how does VDV seem certain the Luka situ be sorted in 3-4 days!? Maybe he been speaking to someone senior at the club
JattYid
Pienaar's behaved so much better about his move. It's clear he wanted to go and to Everton and Everton only. He even shed a tear when asked about his future last year but his conduct has allowed us to get our asking price. He's never sulked, never refused to train or play and when questioned in the press over the summer he's even spoken of his will to try and prove himself to AVB. Fair play to him, he deserves his move.
Spurs Allday
The difficulty for you guys is that we were the only ones prepared to give you even close to £40m (crazy IMHO) and you turned it down, which of course was your perogative. Now, 1 year on, with Modric having a reasonable season (not great by any means!), you find yourselves in a position where the guys wants to go again, but the big money sale option is no longer on the table. Chances are that you're going to be stuck with a player whom many of the fans are beginning to dislike, a player who really doesn't want to play for you, and a player who's value is going to drop rapidly whether a) he doesn't play or b) he plays cr@p as he isn't motivated to perform. The best bet is to put him up for transfer at £35-40m publically and send agents around the Russian and Chinese leagues to get shot of him. If he stays then you're going to have to deal with a Tevez like scenario which couldn't come at a worse time with a new manager trying to impart a new "team unity". I seriously don't envy you guys in the coming months
Bizarre_Blue
Most financially sound in the world? Really, I've never heard that. What's your source? Ryan, RVP is in demand because he's a goal machine. Do you think he had a bad Euros or do you think the Dutch had a bad Euros? And a buying club (Real Madrid) don't value a player based on what he's worth to Spurs, they make an offer based on market valuation, of which £27m + add-ons seems like fair trade. If Levy doesn't like it, then he accepts or refuses. In this case it's a risky strategy to refuse because the more Modric kicks up a fuss, the further away from Spurs valuation it's getting. COYSRUS, is Moutinho really the only other option for Spurs, does he even want to go to Spurs, have Spurs made an offer for him? What if your scouts have unearthed a 'new' Modric for £5m... would it be okay to accept £27m then? Is your entire argument based on buying Moutinho?
rojo2010
Bizarre_Blue, thats about the nuts and bolts of it. Yet most on here will have you believe Levy is the dogs nuts and its all part of his master plan! As i say, Berbatov 2 here we come.
StillRickyVilla
Bizarre_Blue more or less nail ont he head there chap but is Real's valuation based on buying modric or buying a guy who is behaving like modric? i.e. we'll give you a cut price offer to take a problem off your hands hawking him off to the Russians (in Russia!) or the Chinese would be a nice kind of justice where he still gets his big fat pay cheque which now seems to be his only objective. Shameful behaviour from a quality player.
Slurms McKenzie
I never understood the "this player is worth £xm" argument. There are only two values on a player.... The one the club thinks he's worth and the one that the buying clubs think he's worth. A player can be much more valuable to their own team due to things like shirt sales, media monies etc; and this can drive up their market value. But in the case of Modric, I wouldn't really think he was a huge shirt seller world wide, and he doesn't really pose much marketability outside of his home country which is quite a poor commercial market. That means his worth to you guys is only going to be based on his performance and ability to influence how the team plays. If his performances start to turn cr@p if he has a temper tantrum then in effect he'll become worthless for you. That's a very dangerous position to take if you want to ever make any money from him. As I said, best bet is to find some mad club owner in Russia or China who will pay over the odds and take him off your hands!
Bizarre_Blue
Just sell him for 35mil!!! Bizarre_Blue is right - I don't want him around if he keeps on pubically announcing he wants out. We could get a decent replacement and a good backup stiker/RW with the money. You no like chicken badge - Me no like Rat Faces!
MrPaddytheyid
Huddersfield, absolutely. Whilst most on here will be creaming themselves at Levy playing hardball and wringing an extra £2m out of Madrid by 31st Aug, poor old AVB is left with no strikers and a big hole in our midfield to prepare for the new season with. Same old Levy. Same old Spurs. Kane and Defoe upfront v Newcastle and Jenas or Thudd in midfield. Great. Whilst Chelsea are fully blending in, throughout preseason, a string of £25m+ signings. Good luck AVB.
StillRickyVilla
I'm not bothered that the love child of Gail platt and Robert Carlyle wants to leave, I don't mind that he says he wants to leave in public. Spurs have agreed to sell him for the right price! The right price will have to be negotiated between us and a prospective buying club. What really rankles me is his behaviour since he annouced he wants to leave. To go on "strike" (i don't want a free sun holiday in L.A.) is one thing but to not tell your current coach and team mates that you are in fact on strike is deeply disrespectful and is unforgivable. His position is now untenable. He must be sold now and his value has been dropped by his own actions.
Slurms McKenzie
Bazdog - let him rot in the reserves until end of contract ? Are you sure this will benefit our beloved Club ? Think about it. We need the money from his transfer to re-invest & we need him off our payroll. All the other stuff is simply press Buuullllshiiiite. The deal to sell him is close & inevitable, hence, sensibly he is not in usa. A reality check & all this talk about INVESTMENT - we have used the money from Pav, Niko & Charlie to buy Sigg / Vert & also saved on Saha/Nelson/King wages. At the moment, again, we are in profit. That is fine & Levy runs a great stable ship for us, but highlights how we need to sell Modric & get in a replacement + goalie + Striker. Rumours are: Butland (or Lloris), Adebayor & Benzema - would be nice. OR - let him rot in reserves & have Kane upfront ?
Windlespur
Jennings left us for Arsenal, Hoddle via Monaco, for Chelsea. (A certiain Mr.Wenga was Monaco coach at the time)! Both, ofcourse, where eventually welcomed back to Spurs with opened arms. Pat and Glen are two of many great, past Spurs legends, that have given me some fantastic memories of great and entertaining football at WHL. Luka has, at times, shown wonderful skills, and been at the hub of some great, open, attacking play.He is part responsible for my current optimism, as a supporter, that gives me hope for a coming season of yet more exciting football in the grand ol' Tottenham style. Thankyou LM but good luck and goodbye!
MAN ON!
Why not give him the "Escape to Victory" treatment like they did on the goalkeeper. That way he'll just disappear off of everyone's radar as his arm is badly broken, then we can discuss something positive on this god damn website. Modric is doing what everyone on this forum would do if they were in his position. Money talks people and don't kid yourself by trying to bring loyalty into the question. We would ALL follow the money, end of!
yiddyboy
Sorry yiddyboy there a ways of conducting yourself which are decent and honourable to try and achieve your goals, hand in your tranfers request fore-go your big transfer bonus and show you are a true professional who's only interest in moving is for footballing reasons (even if that is Bulldoody and you are only interested in big bucks). Leave with your head held high and your old club lauding you as a true great...
Slurms McKenzie
If a deal is done, why has it not gone through? because as a club we need to move on and get in a replacement. If he is going to be part of THFC season, why was he not on the plane to the states? The biggest problem and i ask any of you, if you really wanted OUT, would you not put in a transfer request? This borders on the ridiculous, we don't want to go down the Tevez route and have him sitting in the stand refusing to play, we have all seen this happen before with Berbato$$. This is about THFC, far bigger then Luka ''RATMAN'' Modric..
spu 4 life
I've said it before and I'll say it again there are three types of people in this world, those that can add and those that can't...
Slurms McKenzie
The problem for you guys might start with the money, but it doesn't end there. Realistically you aren't quite ready to win the league with your current squad (the need for a striker is one gaping hole), and the only other major competition available is Europa which can be a lottery to win just like the Champ League. With that in mind Modric is likely to have had his head turned by another club that is more likely to win a major trophy in the coming season (Madrid) where he could likely be part of a team that will win the Spanish League and also stand a solid chance of the Champions League too. Even if you offered him the same wages that they would, it won't be enough to keep him at this point. Just take a look at what happened to Liverpool with Alonso, Mascherano and Torres. 3 key players who opted to leave a strong club to persue potential silverware elsewhere. Yes of course money comes into it, but none of those 3 players would have stay with the scousers even if they had offered new contracts on equal wages. That's just the way of the world unfortunately. I dread the day when the likes of Mata, Luiz, Courtois or Hazard decide that they can become part of something they think is bigger by shifting off to Barca or Madrid (or maybe PSG by that point!!). The important thing is that no player should ever be bigger than the club and I applauded Mancini in the way he dealt with Tevez. You don't want to play for us? Fine; here's how much we'll sell you for, so go find somewhere new or rot in the reserves. Same goes for Modric.... Stick a competative price on him on a transfer list and let him go where ever he wants as long as you get paid for it. If he decides not to make a transfer work with his wage demands (like Tevez did) then so be it.... Enjoy the reserves training! One thing we've experienced is just how ruthless AVB can be towards players who don't want to be part of his projects (Anelka & Alex!). For me I'm watching this situation with interest on how Levy manages to do the best thing for the club without losing face over the £40m turned down last season. Right now that £27m from Madrid would be looking awfully tempting to me! But even then you'd need to find another £5m plus extra wages to land Moutinho or close to another £10m plus wages to land Hulk, and even then you still have a striker to find!
Bizarre_Blue
rojo2010 - My argument is based on the cost of realistically replacing him. Anyone of Modric's calibre is going to cost in the region of 30mil unless you're extremely lucky. Sure Madrid will only offer what they seem reasonable, but the power is always with the selling club. It's a player that we don't actually want shot of, so how can we accept anything less than our valuation so early in the transfer season. Modric can go on deadline day when the offer is at it's maximum. If Spurs aren't willing to sell to Madrid because they believe Modric is worth more, or simply and solely to make an example of his poor behaviour i'm fully behind that.

As for RVP, is he really a goal machine. This is the first time he has actually played a full season in something like a decade? He is approaching old age and has a year on his contract, yet you feel Arsenal's valuation of him is justified when realistically clubs can hang around for 6 months and offer the chap a better wage packet. Modric is still under contract for a very long time so he should be better advised of his actions before he destroys his career.
RyanHotSpur
I agree with Avb on this. He only made it worse for himself.Levy was willing to let him leave for the right price and wouldn't stand in his way but now after all this bull***** from modric Levys stance on the situation has . Wool he still makeit easy for modric to leave for his dream club Madrid. I get the feeling that Levy will now not only play hardball but will do his best to make sure modric pays for this. He showed last year he neededhe can and he will stand in a players way. Modric has *****ed off the one man at spurs that you don't want to ***** off. He needed Levy on his side and for some reason he *****ed him off. If modric , real Madrid or his agent think this is a smart thing to do then they are sadly mistaken.
TallaghtSpurs
I prefer we to hold him until we get 40 million pounds, even if it takes last minute of transfer window. Tell yoiu guys a secret, Luka Modric is able to activate the Webster Ruling in 6 months time if I'm not wrong and he is able to buy out his remaining of his contract, so he can buy 3 years of his contract or Real Madrid help him buy out his contract, so I would rather sell him before the transfer window close, even if it might drag very long, just to get the correct price.
what_sux
Bizarre_Blue - I think Spurs fans would be happier recieving 27mil from RM than they would 40m from Chelsea. It's never a good idea to sell good players to your rivals, especially when they are situated so locally. The fact that you won the champions league probably hurt Modric a little too, seeing as he could have been part of that if we had sold last summer. You make some very good points which is pretty suprising seeing as we've had some total morons from VC visit us recently, however, as long as Modric doesn't unsettle the rest of the team and his demands are not met so willingly, i will be satisfied.
RyanHotSpur
If Fabregas and Hazard are worth £30m+ then £27m for Modric (£10.5m more than we paid for him) is not enough imo. I think they are about £6m shy of the absolute minimum.
Guyver
what_sux - Madrid are probably aware of that then and it's possibly the reason behind a 27mil bid as opposed to 35mil. They are afterall in no rush to sign talent and i think they would quite happily wait 6 months if it saved them a small fortune.
RyanHotSpur
Bizzare_Blue, good post and you have nailed it again. You are right its not ALL about money as someone said above. Players also want the best chance of winning trophies and to play on the biggest stage. Its a shame Modric has taken this stance now, because everything about the new AVB era is really positive right now. He's making all the right noises about challenging on all 4 fronts and eventually for the title. I for one, am really looking forward to the European nights next season, a competition that Harry completely disrespected throwing in en masse reserves and youth players, yet a competition that would have been fantastic to be a part of in the latter stages or even final. Would be an amazing trip to Amsterdam if we can make the final next season!

I have nearly sold my car, but I didn'twant to take it with me on my trip abroad incase it gets damaged. Recently I've noticed that it won't start for me when I want it to, I hope the new owner doesn't have this problem. The other reason I haven't sold it just yet, is I need to get my new car lined up or I'll be walking around for a while and If you walk into a showroom the price of a new car sudden jumps when they know you really need to buy...
Slurms McKenzie
I agree Ryan. Selling to a competitor has its own risks involved, especially if that competitor becomes stronger as a result. The only thing I don't agree with is how you value Modric at £40m now. Allow me to explain.... If Modric's key value to you is based on his impact on your playing level (which I can only assume to be true as he isn't a very strong marketable player unlike a Drogba or a Messi), then what he's worth to you only depends on how well he plays and impacts the team. In his latest stunt he's clearly unsettling the situation and given how many times he appeared to be not present on the pitch for you when his head wasn't in it it can only go on to lower his value further. Cost to replace is a completely different arguement. As someone says above, if you found the next "Modric" who only cost you £15m instead of £30m, it doesn't mean Modric is worth £15m less. The concern for any team (And as I'm writing this Laudrup is saying something similar on the video feed) is when a player no longer wants to be part of a club which will naturally lower his commitment on the pitch unless they are a true professional; but then a true professional wouldn't be in this situation in the first place! Also with regard to VC.... We've had some unsavoury characters from VS over there too. Part and parcel of having so many clubs part of 1 "mother-site" I'm afraid.... Still, one of my best mates is a huge Spurs fan and we always tend to have some cracking debates on footy. For the record he doesn't think Modric is worth £40m (unless he was being sold to Us or Arsenal.... Then it's £50m! ha ha!)

what_sux
Most adored foreign player? Surely Bale, no? lol.
Total knobhead
Bizarre_Blue - Me and your friend seem to have similar thoughts. Ofcourse i don't think Modric is worth 40mil, nearer 30mil in my own estimates. I'd be quite happy to sell him for 27mil if we tied up Moutinho for 27mil. It's just a big hit to lose a player like Modric and be left with someone like Huddlestone to fill his boots. I think Spurs had the intention of signing Oscar for 20mil and selling Modric for 27mil initially, but as that deal fell through, Modric is going to have to wait. Avoiding training was a very silly move though.
RyanHotSpur
StillRickyVilla - I would like to agree that it's not all about the money but i believe it is. He said Chelsea was his preferred choice over Manchester last summer. Manchester (no offence Chavski) are much more likely to win trophies. They have a history for it. Chelsea are megarich, if City came along, i recon Modric would say "City is my dream move".
RyanHotSpur
I think levy is playing clever on the sale of Modric. I think he now he can can close to the asking price and will sell for around 32 mil. I also do not think the tha Modric money is needed to be in teh "bank account" before we spend out on new players.

This is where levy is clever. We will continue to do our transfers while fighting with RM to get the right price we deserve for a player of madric's ability, even if that means going through right until thelast minute. The books will be babalnced by the start of the season anyway.

If levy shows signs of weakness by just giving in to the first, second or even third offer that falls way below the market value of this type of player, it will open to the floodgates to all the agents togop out and tout there player to new potential clubs knowing that levy can crack.

Levy will sell when he is ready and the price is right for Spurs, and the player, agent or purchasing club will not push him or bully him any other way. I'll say it again - I really do not think that the sale of Modric will dictate our transfer dealins. Its a case of when and how much for Modric as he will be sold, but I gurantee that it will be for more then the 27 mil RM are offering.
mattspurs
Matt Ė Recent dealings blow a big hole in your argument mate. IF we were signing players and were just holding out for the best offer then fair play, but we arenít. I donít know whats going on behind the scenes but we are about to take a brilliant exciting summer and turn it into a disaster in proportions of the whole Berba issue. We need 2 strikers, a midfielder and a keeper, and although levy does tend to play his cards close to his chest we donít seem to be anywhere near signing any of them. If we had say Moutinho, Lloris, Ade and Hulk signed I wouldnít really give a flying feck about modric. But the fact is, we obviously do need to sell him before we buy, which does us no favours as real Madrid have plenty of options in that area.
hudderspur
I'm sick of reading about this rat faced fu(king maggot. As I've said before on other discussions regarding him, so he can pass pretty good, so what? He only scored four times and four assists in 36 games last season, hardly record breaking stats. If a bid of 30+ Million comes in for him, let the pr1ck fu(k off and good riddance. If the price isn't met, let him rot and charge him his weeks wages for every time he spits it and doesn't train. For all those advocating his side of the story, think of the disrespect he's shown our club, not once, but twice now. I'd love to spit in the (unt's face.
PERTH OZSPUR
Modric has just shot himself in the A#se, Levy will be raging he has not showed to training. If Levy was softening his sttance at all before this and about to settle for a lower fee, Modric has just facked it. 35m now and not a penny less, fack your add ons and fack Carvalho a has been who would offer nothing to us. Levy is having a tough year personally and Modric I feel has just tipped him over the edge,Idiot. He will be held over the coals now and thats a FACT.
ledgespur
Bizarre_Blue, you make some valid points but remember this time last year Chelsea was he dream move, now he doesn't even mention Chelsea, it's all Real Madrid this and that. Personally I think his agent is causing the majority of the fuss and he "apparently" didn't turn out to training/flight to LA etc... I think once the Olympics starts on Friday the press will have something else to write about letting the footballing world evolve as it normally does, hence nothing more in the news until 30th July then the countdown begins.

bazdog
Hudderspur, i'm with you mate. I too would be very happy with Levy's handling of the Modric saga if we had 2 new top class strikers, midfielder and goalkeeper all in the bag and training with AVB in the US. But the fact is we don't and don't look even near it. I bet Levy spends the whole rest of the window giving it the big 'i am' over Modric. He'll probably get about £30-£32m for him on 31st August. But where will that leave the team? We are now 3 weeks before the start of the season, we have just the 1 recognised striker (who is not good enough anyway) and our best midfielder is about to depart leaving a gaping hole in our midfield. Fantastic. At least give AVB a chance.
StillRickyVilla
Nothing surprises me about footballers anymore, and I refuse to become emotional about their actions. Modric is not the first to act in this way and he won't be the last. He just has a common or garden variety footballer's mentality.
Shannon
If Modric didn't insert a buyout clause in his contract and if he is still only on £40k a week at Spurs then he would be better off looking for a new agent rather than a new club. He doesn't come across as being stupid but maybe he is. Whatever the reason I would really advise him against pi**ing off Levy at the moment. He's in the middle of a lot of personal issues having just lost his mum and now it appears his wife is unwell. The last thing he needs is Modric trying to throw his insignificant weight around. He really runs the risk of feeling Levy's full wrath at the moment. Like I said earlier, maybe he is plain stupid. I always thoughts rats were intelligent...
SpuriousLife
Guys I still think this will play out well for us. I dont beleive for one minute that our transfer dealings are pinned to the modric sale. Spurs will contrinue to do deals and bring players in whiclst also making Modtic sweat over his move. By the end of August we will have our new players and would have got rid on the ones we don't need.
mattspurs
Mattspurs, the point is 1. What deals and when? With 3 weeks to go there is no evidence yet that any meaningful deals are in place. And 2. Even if they happen on 31st August, that is too late if we are serious about next season. Dumping 3 or 4 new players on AVB a month into the season gives AVB zero time to blend a new team together, at a time when the media will be baying for his blood if we've had a poor/average start. It'll be Christmas before the team is settled, that's if AVB is still with us. Typical Spurs, counting the pennies, no ambition.
StillRickyVilla
off topic hoping one of you guys can help i have been to the lane a bunch of times but i have always stayed with family but they have recently moved and i was wondering if any of u lot know of somewhere good to stay maybe half way between stansted airport and WHL cause i booked my ticket to first home game of season so i buzzing but just not sure where to stay
dpyido
mattspurs - It's not that our transfer dealings are "pinned" on the Modric sale but the sooner we recieve that cash the sooner we can plan to spend it. Not only that but it's taking up valuable time that can be spent negotiating other deals elsewhere. Maybe there are more funds maybe there aren't but this is a nuisance none-the-less
RyanHotSpur
It is not Levy v Modric despite surface appearances and media reporting investing in some ongoing drama. It is Levy on behalf of Tottenham Hotspur making a point to Real Madrid and in a situation where Modric can be seen as acting as an internal agent for Real Madrid at Tottenham. A very foolish piece of politics that player and player-agent could regret. RM are loaded, they want the player but they don't want to pay, calculating that a Modric internal to Tottenham can help them pull that kind of stunt. Levy is making a point to the player and to a rival football club that is also a business organisation. If Modric stays at Tottenham, which is as likely an outcome as any other at present, he will neither "rot in the stands" nor "rot in the reserves", but will be selected and will play, or if reluctant then he will not be selected but face regular fines that at least gain Tottenham money in the immediate. Contracts matter and after all, Modric just prefers a contract at Real Madrid instead where they'd expect him to take it seriously.
Airwave
Because their not much else to talk about in the summer i think some of you guys are panicking a bit too much. AVB said it last week, he wants to assess the squad 1st (probably by the time we have finished playing Liverpool next week) then will decide incomings and outgoings. Obviously Ade is being negotiated and Modder Facker will be leaving. Im pretty hopefull that ratface money will straight away be put in use for his replacement and a striker. On another point i feel Luka will pretty much sign for any major team at the moment, im suprised we havent sounded out Inter Milan for a swap deal with Snieder...i could see Wesley being up for that challenge COYMFS!!!
JattYid
Why is everyone blaming Modric, and all the 'let him rot in the reserves' nonsense!. This is a guy who last season said he wanted to go. Levy put his foot down and he stayed. So if there was as agreement that if we don' make the CL then he goes. Who is responsible for us not making the CL??? Yes, it is all Harry's fault. Everything is Harry's fault. Spurs should sell Modric for as much as Madrid are willing to pay and then sue Harry for the difference and the 30m+ we missed out on.

Levy with Keane

what_sux
Vicspur I want him to put in a written transfer request so he will fore-go his tranfer bonus but it appears he wants to play both sides. I held no ill will toward him for wanting to leave for a bigger challenge (i.e. a big fat payday) but his behaviour (if we are to believe the reports) this transfer window is disgraceful. With over five weeks of the transfer window still remaining he is trying to force spurs in to letting him go for a cut price but wants his payout for being sold without requesting the transfer. Surely he would be better off setting a deadline for a deal to be done and if no club matches his valuation then he won't go. That would then put pressure on the clubs trying to sign him. Or he could have kept his head down travelled with the squad and waited on Levy to play brinksmanship with RM, IM, UTD, Chelski, PSG or who ever. Either way he is spurs player now and should behave as such. IMO he is really tarnishing his rep with the club.
Slurms McKenzie
If you guys had put a more reasonable evaluation on Modric, everyone would have got what they wanted. 35mi for a wantaway player is just ridiculous.

I am sure i don't just speak for myself here when i say i forgave him for his dummy spitting at the end of last season. On the other hand i am sure there are a few fans who could not stomach his spat despite him pulling on the jersey last season. To behave like this when ( as mentioned in the opening thread ) the chairman paid £16 million for him is contemptible. I understand players wanting to leave but to refuse to play is too much to take for me. I live in Warrington and have said on numerous occasions to friends if the might Spurs phoned me and said come and play for us for a grand a week would walk to the stadium in an instant. To do this and give even more problems to our chairman t a time when his wife is ill (who i gather is also a Spurs fan ) shows he is all out for himself. Sir Ledley's first job in his ambassadorial role should be to insert his fingers into Modrics' considerable bugle and drag him round the training pitch!!!! Anyone who still supports Modric should go and suck up to the blue noses or Madrid!!!

Sajit - RVP has had one injury free season in a decade and accompanied this season with an absolute dire Euro's. Modric has played almost every game since arriving at Spurs creating more assists in five years at Spurs than RVP has scored in 10. Aguero, Suarez, Rooney, Dzeko, Balotelli, Drogba are all capable players from the same league capable of playing to RVP's standard if not better, but how many CM's can you name that do what Modric does for Spurs? One year left on his contract which he can buy out of for less than 3mil and you think his valuation or 30mil isn't as ludicriss as Spurs 35mil valuation of Modric? Get off the crack pipe.

The longer this drags on, the worse it will get. Real let VDV go for 8m, did they do us a favour? Maybe, but by playing hardball, the risk is that Real might just walk away. I have said before that I would be suprised of Modric goes for more than 30m. I expect more like 27m plus add ons and hopefullly a loan player. That is fine. I am happy with that. Its a huge profit on a player who dos not want to be with us. The problem is not selling Modric, but getting someone to replace him. If we can get Moutino for 25m, then it is a good bit of business for us. Also if we can forge more ties with Madrid then all the better for future dealings. Get it done and lets get on with it. PLease Mr Levy, I want a stress free Aug 31.

Apologies to all for greatest foreign player, what I meant was he could have become one! Cheers big c my man! And RSVP is 29 and has an awful injury record and will be free in 12 months so I feel the comparison is more than justified

It is not "a brilliant exciting summer" and nor are things about to turn into "a disaster". It has been a good summer and things are ticking along as the latest players return from holidays (and play pre season matches) after the recent European Championship, and several more will return to Tottenham when the Olympic Games finish. So why opt for exaggeration when talks are ongoing here and there, just because a wrinkle crops up that will be ironed out? And why is it that deals that aren't ready to go right now will instead only be done on 31 August? It is so hysterical this fear and so unnecessary. A tabloid a fortnight ago makes Modric's move pivotal to a score of other moves of players between clubs, and some here believe it. So if Modric doesn't leave Tottenham, will all those other players not be able to move clubs, then? Of course they will and the tabloid will just speculate it all in different ways.
Airwave
Slurms McKenzie - We're not comparing the players as such but what they bring to a team and why their valuations are what they are. Makes me die when someone feel RVP's transfer valuation is justified yet Modric's is not. BS.

You think the media are bad now, imagine how they will be if we have a poor start to the season, which if we start with Defoe and Kane is nailed on.

Lucas Moura is on the verge of joining Utd, the fee is reported to be 26m-29m, and people come on here and say Luka is not worth 35m, get a grip people. Nobody can agrue he is not worth 35m if youlook at lenght of contract and what other players are going for that are not as good. FFS HENDERSON COST 20M. If we let Modric go for 27m Levy is done, and i am a big fan of his.
ledgespur
Sorry for typos .......angry keyboard bashing!
ledgespur
Carroll cost 35million, Torres 50million Luka has nearly scored more then both combined last season so that would make him worth 85 million?
Slurms McKenzie
Modric is no Ronaldo and we are no United in achievements or in wages. United were achieving those things before Ronaldo and afterward. We have yet to win a single trophy or provide 3x the pay. A contract does not make you a slave and if you don't obey it fine you do not get paid the wages. The fine print though will show a player can simply show up and not cause a ruckus but play at 20% and earn his pay. There is no way of assessing pay on performance unless there are performance clauses in the contract. If Modric was told by Levy whatever it may be of course he will react this way. Levy is pricing a player out of a move...I'm sure if Modric isn't sold he will play but you will never see a Modric give it his all again for the Spurs because of this...
RagingSpur
Sorry RagingSpur what do you mean "we have yet to win a single trophy"?
Slurms McKenzie
We are only hurting ourselves by keeping unhappy players here. He wanted out last summer and he was always going to want out this summer and surely failing to achieve CL and anything ambitious last season was not going to help us keep him. It's a difference when a player is 22...but when its 26 the time is closing down. Fab went for less than Carrol and Torres...nobody cares about those and you cannot use that as an argument when doing a transfer! We are selling abroad and we declined his valuated 40m last summer...his price is only going to drop and we are only losers in the end...
RagingSpur
Slurms, what does it mean? Umm the fact we have only a league cup since 08'. Nobody coming in cares about the success of decades past...only us fans do. The players...money and current success. We are a great club with awesome history but it's history and not the present.
RagingSpur
@ Raging, Don't agree at all, we can't just cave in and except the players demands. We have a player that every top club wants, apparently you can't replace him. So I say take the gamble and call their bluff. Every player gets unhappy, do we take our pants down when they all do?
ledgespur
You dont think players like Hutton, Corluka, or others were not trying to force there way out? I'm pretty sure they would have done the same things but the differences are nobody would care because those are small losses for the club. You can afford to send some players like that to the bench or the youth to train or even in the stands but its not possible to do with you best players as they are you biggest assets. You can fine and do little things but the fact is for a club our size we can't do the same discipline that the likes of City or other billionare owened clubs can do...ironic that thsoe are the same clubs that would pay over the odds for those players. Feck take the 30m and finish this already and lets get a striker and goalie already. This season is going to be worse and worse turnout the longer we wait.
RagingSpur
Its ironic that AVB had no problem with Chelsea offering 40m for Modric when he was on Chelseas end but now he can open his mouth and say Modric is in the wrong for wanting out. I already hate the man because he is in the media running his mouth. It could have been kept quiet and fine modric! Say he is injured, sick, whatever! But don't open your mouth on the transfer and lower his value...he isn't leaving if value isnt met? Hmmm ok so he is going to stay here and do nothing for us and we are not willing to improve this side? feck
RagingSpur

ledgespur
Well if anything it's going to be interesting. Madrid think they can bully us, and I HATE there president he is so co#ky. He thinks the football world revolves around Madrid.

So you repeat the exaggeration, hudderspur. You say "You think the media are bad now," (no, they are what they are, so don't ever get in a state about it as so much of it is $ifh-stirring to get a reaction among our more excitable brethren) then "..imagine how they will be if we have a poor start to the season (why do you care a fig what they will be like?) "..which if we start with Defoe and Kane is nailed on (but why assume they will be the one or two up-front weeks from now?) "..AVB will be folgged in public and i dont see how thats fair" (except that nobody will be 'flogged' in public). Read paddyspur's report from LA, the squad don't seem to be panicking over there and there're are still more of them due back at Spurs after the Olympics.
Airwave
Ledge, why keep players who don't want to be here? A player who is gone and will give us a record amount leaving. 30m is fair price? lol ok! At his signing everyone would have accepted taking 30m for a player bought at 16m! The price will only get lower and lower every year while he will never play to his best for us out of spite. This relationship is far to sour for it to be fixed. The value isn't going to go any higher than it is this summer just as I said last summer we will never see a 40m bid again!
RagingSpur
@Raging, So we should sack AVB, sell Modric for whatever and give the media muppet his job back?
ledgespur
I agree we wont see 40m but def not 27m, 30-33m would be fair.
ledgespur
Levy is no idiot and he is hoping he can get Modric out of this by changing his mind with fines and threats but the club knows how valuable the money that can be made is. We have invested minimal salary in a player who we can now sell for 30m. Levy is trying to pull every last bit out of Madrid but this strike is only hurting our value for Modric. I don't think either Levy or Modric are going to win this. As for our target Moutinho he isn't coming in without a sale and PS read the story of how he made his move to Porto. Its identical to what Modric is doing now...
RagingSpur
He shouldnt cost any less than Hazard or Fabregas who both wanted to leave their clubs.
Guyver
I never wanted AVB a Chelsea reject! I cannot stand him in his first few months he running his mouth like not other and has yet to play a single match. He is going to be the only one to blame if he fails once again! That media will never let him back in the PL again if he butchers this shot and nor will I. I will back him but I have no faith in him from what I have seen. I will stand with whats best for the team and he came into this side because he can do better than HR. So I expect better than the last 4 years...in his tenure.

Don't act as if we didn't turn Verts head from Ajax because we are bigger and better. What is the difference from that and what Modric is doing. Modric did last season what Vert did this year and since he failed he did it more forceful. Its life! Its a contract like any other you are not entitled to be a slave. If your employer can't match what you can get elsewhere you will leave every single one of you would do the same. Only a true fan of the badge would stay for less.
RagingSpur
RagingSpur - AVB is not a Chelsea reject, is that the club has tons of big egos players that think they are bigger than the manager. Imagine you are a supervisor of a company, the employer under you think they are bigger and complain to the chairman and get you fired, what you think? Some of his words are misquoted, why? The MEDIA LOVE our previous manager because he keep sharing all secrets with them. He may fail again, and he has a similar chance to be a success, so back him and see how. At least, AVB so far treated our club with more respect that our former manager throughout the years.

Our previous manager performance for previous two season drop after certain months, and it is just a bad indicator. I have said it here AVB is my third or fourth manager after the old manager is sack, so I hope everyone can judge him with as a blank sheet of paper, and not the next page of a thick history book.

Raging Spur, you obviously have never played football or any sport for that matter. No player would get on a field and NOT play to his best. From my experience, once on the field it's my reputation on the line with each play. Doesn't matter what my situation is, even with an injury, many players play through the pain. If he's with Spurs when the season starts and he gets on the pitch he will play hisq best.
jvd
RagingSpur - HR and Spurs, where's the hypocritical? Levy supported HR throughout the tax scandal and is rewarded with a HR flirting with an England job with a run of 6 points of 33 points, and Levy was also rewarded with his head coach publicily hoping his direct rivals to win the CL before having to backtrack his statement. Good reward there, feeling betrayed there Levy?
what_sux
So u don't get my point airwave, fair enough. No need to be a dick about it. We will Ser won't we, Im just saying 4 weeks before the season starts and we have a lot of work to do. Or is that too an "exaggeration"??
hudderspur
Raging, you said about AVB "I will back him but I have no faith in him". Could that be any more of a contradiction? As far as you saying you "hate him already", behave please mate.
Crissybwoy
Some people just can't see the bigger picture.
Crissybwoy
I am not concerned at all. I am actually happy now that Levy is pi$$ed and hope that infuriates him to the point where he says, NO to Madrid and we keep him for another year. He can't afford not to show with all the crazy fines that he will endure. I still love him as a player but it was a silly move inspired by greedy agents. Can't wait to take my son to see them in NYC. CMON U SPURS
kosovo_spurs
I don't really see what all the fuss and vitriol is about towards Luka tbh. He wants to join the biggest club in the world to realise his life ambitions, it's not his fault RM are trying to stitch us up by offering less than what he's worth. Surely more criticism should be directed towards Florentino Perez for trying and failing to out manoeuvre Levy. I'm not suggesting Modric is in the right, but we always knew this was going to happen.
Crissybwoy
Fair point Chrissy. Fair point
Cape Town Spurs
RagingSpur, just to clarify - are you saying we are bigger and better than Ajax?
Jocka10
Guys, why do you keep going on about how much Luka is worth. It does not matter. Talk about Hazard, Henderson, Carroll etc and compare them to Luka. It only matters who wants him and how much they are willing to pay. I don't see a queue of teams for his signature. I don't see chelsea and city making silly bids for him. Real are the only team who wants him and therefore either we sell or we don't. Simple. Liverpool were desperate and had Torres cash to spend, so supply and demand. Same with Henderson, Hazard, Moura, even Torres. If we had a queue of clubs bidding for him, we could dictate the price. As it stands, like I said, either we sell for as much as we can get out of Madrid or we don't. Of course, it does change the whole scenario if chelsea make a higher bid. Then, would we take the money and sell to chelsea, or take less and send him to Madrid??? I say sell for less, bring in any replacements asap and get our squad settled before season starts. That is more important than the squabbling and the disruption this is going to cause.
vicspur
Good post Big c. Don't get me wrong, I'm not siding with Luka on this, he's still a tw*t for disrespecting the club, but if we all had the chance to be the best that we could be, reach the very pinnacle of where we've always wanted to go, we'd grab it with both hands and try to make it possible. Anyone that says they wouldn't is either a nutter or a fool.
Crissybwoy
Raging, I am saying that as of today. Ajax may be rich in history but the team and the league are not going to attract talent as easily as we will.
RagingSpur
jocka,** haha i love addressing myself...

Talking to yourself Raging? You're either mental or a website shill that's forgotten who he's logged in as.
Crissybwoy
Good point Crissybwoy. lol
Crissybwoy
Big C, sadly we don't live in an all ethical wholesome world my friend. He wants to go and play for one of the biggest and best clubs in the world. So he signed a 6 year deal, but if Levy did agree with him that he could go, then does that make Daniel a bad person for going back on his word? We can't have everything our own way. I remember Sherringham leaving, because he wanted to win trophies, he won the treble with utd, and then he came back. I was more gutted when Hoddle left us, then Waddle, then Lineker and Gazza than I am about Modric, even though I think he is one of the best players I have seen in a Spurs shirt. Why?, because we know he wants to go. He wanted to go last season. We don't know what was agreed behind the scenes. I just want him gone now and the squad settled before the season starts.
vicspur
Slurmz you crack me up sometimes lol
RyanHotSpur
Would any of you really want to see him rot in the reserves or 25m in the bank? We are not city where we cash throw cash down the swanny. *** david bentley *** cough *** cough***.
vicspur
We need the stadium and regular champions league. Until then we will continue to see regular Berbatovs and Modrics'. Players know we are a massive club so in their eyes its like staying at the Ritz 'til Harrods come calling which irks me to the maximum. Too many foreigners that don't love chirpy like we do!! Feck 'em.
Jocka10
Spurssss fan. soo tiringgg. jawing on and on for modric. I totally understand you guys though. if such a big player leaves such a small club......... Europa might be the highest you can aspire tooo. I have neva seen a such number of articles on a player in my life. Jesus Christ was is going on. can't you live your lives without slagging off a player that wants to leave your club. It amazes me that people without common sense (which is not common at all abounds this site with such profusion). One idiot said he came out the next day chelsea bidded for him to say he was leaving. Did the moron not know that most times negotiations go on for over a week or two sometimes before it comes out in the press???. he has a contract agreed and he wants to leave, he will not be the first player to do so. Reasonable people ( of which are precious few on the spurs board) will seat with him and see how it benefits both sides and life moves on. What did Levy do?!?! ( he came out with he will rather rot in the reserves than see him sold) and he opened the pandora's box. there are better ways to have handled this situation and levy absolutely messed up. If Modric referred to a gentleman's agreement do you idiots think he rustle it up and willingly put his hand into a 6 years deal. ( its smacks of something you will do out of gratitude to a club to brought you to limelight and ensure they get something for their effort) most players do that by the way. You decline 40m for him last season, now he is 26 going 27 with a very average season behind him. will Levy put 35m on such a player???? You don't have to be a genius to figure this things out ( i think). Yes you don't have to sell him???keep him in the reserves pay him his 40k. destroy his career (if you can) guess that makes you a big club rightttt?!?!?!?!?. Webster ruling will kick in or one way or the other he will leave and your little club would have proven a point.
Dwonder
What has THFC ever done to ROLAND RATMAN, last season ended, we sat 4th, chelski won the CL, we don't get CL fOOTBALL, RATMAN is off to prepare with the Croatia National side, all of a sudden rumour after rumour comes to light, rolandRATMAN going to Madrid, this has all come out from his agent, who you can bet, has turned over a hornets nest, his agent would have been in contact with Madrid and most likely still is, only his gone about it the wrong way, he should have advised RATMAN to put in a transfer request.......SCUM.....RATMAN has been found.....his in hollywood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_milh0hlLuU
spu 4 life
vic, the problem with bentley is his value was never going to be matched and he was never going to make this team better. He could have came in and done a shift but the money would never be made back. Modric is a focal point in this team and he is profitable unlike Bentley who we just made a huge mistake on. Losses like that hurt badly.
RagingSpur
Raging, again, with Bentley we paid over the odds because we wanted him and we paid the asking price.
vicspur
Top man big cockeral, few words but very effective!!
Jocka10
If Levy was in United, Ronaldo would still be there -.- Luka's only mistake was signing such a long contract. Levy doesn't realize that by being represive, his not only harming Modric, but his own interests too. An unhappy player isn't a good one, and his value goes down. He seems to be expecting Luka to find motivation again to play a good season in a Spurs shirt, but I doubt it will happen. IMO he will get depressed and won't play good for months and months. So, instead of losing 7-8million pounds by selling cheap, he could easily effectively lose more than that, if a great Modric of today becomes a lifeless shell with no motivation. In short, Levy needs to swallow his ego, and sell Luka asap.
cajic
Dwonder, Spurs a small club? Dream on... Any player would jump at the chance to play for Real Madrid, or move to a club where they are paid higher wages. Modric is 26 now, so he wants to do the best for himself. We all understand that, if you think that we don't you are the idiot. Levy is just doing what any charman would do, trying to get the best deal for the club.
Fanman
What Levy is doing certainly isn't 'best' for the club. The anxiety, the arguments, the *****ed off chairman, the disciplining, the constant headlines. All negative vibes around the club. But Levy seems to confirm the stereotype of his people and money, money, MONEY.
cajic
Thank Modric, It should be the other way round, it was the opportunity we gave him after his move from Zagreb that firstly brought him to the big time, he signs a contract until 2016, then the little rat faced pillock screws us, he has been a complete pain in the arse since the farce involving Chelsea, and the sooner we get rid of the little prat the better. Levy should stop insisting on £40M which he has no chance of getting, get real with a price of £30M (Nearly 100% profit on his original fee) and Real Madrid may up their offer. What we don't want is this bollox to go on until 23.30 on the last night of the window as we managed with Berbatov, winning the arguement, but completely cocking up the window from a player recruiting point of view. After starting off at the gallop with Sigurdson and finally sorting out Vertonghen we seem to have ground to a halt,with the Ade eal going tits up, and now with less than a month to go we are a million miles off ready, and this Modric farce is not helping. Sorry but it looks like "same old, same old" as far as Spurs and building a truly competitive side is concerned.
Frank
Is all that worth the 7-8 million the drama is about? Not everything that can be counted counts, and many things that can't be counted count.
cajic
Tired of the modric saga now. Sell him and move on! Moutinho in if possible and 2 quality STRIKERS PLEASE....!
jhbspur
@Cajic, I disagree pal. He was told that the club is open for offers but will wait for the right one. Now, he could have waited and train with the guys until the deal is reached. Otherwise, it is all business and we should not, and 100000% Levy won't, come down on price because he is not patient to wait until the price is matched. The silliness will have a negative effect on Luka only. He will be sold, but not traveling will cost him fees but never bring the price down. Hence, as much as I like Modric, and I think I am one of the his biggest fans, he did the wrong thing. It's not like Levy said he will not be sold so he should cut the crap and fly to LA asap. COYS
kosovo_spurs
Frank, ". Sorry but it looks like "same old, same old" as far as Spurs and building a truly competitive side is concerned." Its because of those words that a player like Modric does want out. Sig and Vert although are good signings once again goes down the same road of potentially good players, cheap investment, but still lack that cutting class. 16m spent and no striker, no goalie, and our best player once again demanding a move away! Its this kind of reason its hard to keep players. We lost the best CB we have had! We once again seem to be heading down the road of selling at the last second and making the money disappear like we will never invest it in a quality player, and it looks like another season of non-sense. 40m?! Lets be serious here Levy got a taste of that last season and rejected it now it will never hit that price. Like you said 30m should have been set and i think more clubs would have hit that mark and we would have had more options to sell. Now its Madrid only and they will not hit that mark because they dont have to!!
RagingSpur
Kosovo, Modric last summer did nothing but ask for a way out and with 40m on the table(great money) he was denied a move! He made a small fuss but played on. He was always going to want out and the transfer request didn't work so he got his hands dirty like 100% of others who look for a way out do. This is the only way to force a move out. He will rack up some fines and once the team is back he will show up to practice if no move is made by then. He will walk through drills and never be the same player for us again. He knows how valuable he is and he has just as much power as Levy does. If he is forced to stay he will stay and he will be angry and causing a mess till he gets it his way. Asking nicely didn't work and now you do it the only other way possible.
RagingSpur
Windlespur,just really cheesed of with the rat and angry with the situation amongst other things.your totally right dans the man.
bazdog
Some people are writing that if we have a bigger stadium and CL, we wouldn't be having a player like MoFo pulling stunts in order to force more money and a change of club. Really? Forgetting about Man U with it huge stadium and CL losing Cristiano Ronaldo to RM and being forced into silly money by Wayne Rooney? There is no immunity to these things no matter new bigger stadia and CL matches.
Total knobhead
Total, you are very right some players just want to go elsewhere and win in other places but some don't want to stick around and win nothing. That is the reality that there is no promise that all those things will ensure pure happiniess but it will so prestige. We can't compare ourselves to either United or Madrid. Not many grow up hearing about Tottenham unless they are from London but Madrid....every kid from everywhere has heard of it. One day maybe we have ours...but today we will see more players go and choose other clubs over us and thats the reality. There is no point of ruining players careers and that isn't a thing to be happy or brag about. In fact it makes us look like a pathetic club to do such a thing. Maybe to our fans it shows that we are serious but to players who may want to come in it shows that we are not easy team to deal with and i dont like that publicity.

Yidmarks
oxfordspur - If you see this, I think we can have an article discussing why Spurs put up the Luka Modric update article on the official website? Is Levy trying to ***** Real? Is the clarify things?
what_sux
Luka's back at the spurs lodge according to the website.
nelly61
Someone mentioned above earlier, what else do you expect from modern day footballers? It is very sad, but a true reflection of how the footballing world has evolved. The topic has been discussed countless times and like many, until a final decision is made on Modric's future surely we should move on.
thenuge
I think it's a unique move for our club to put it in the official site, but not sure what's the hidden excuse.
what_sux
I hope rat face is beginning to feel like a bit of a dick here, he could have handled this alot better and with the news on the website saying that he is back in trainig i think real may have to seriously up their offer if they want him. Fair play to levy, i dont think he is going to back down to the little rodent, i am concerned how he will perform for the jersey though? At the same time, y signa six year deal with no by out clauses, i think his agents r definitly not clued up at all. IN LEVY WE TRUST, COYS!!!!!!!
Yidd Fein
Some of your comments are kind of pathetic. With insults like that you probably should look at yourself in the mirror. Sickening.
RagingSpur
I think that Levy is winning - Modric back in training and Spurs deciding how and where he is going to train. For some reason this makes me happy.
NYCspur
Ox- would appreciate if you moderate that ***** Cajic's comment of Levy and "his people and money..." C'mon mate if I wanted to hear that ***** i'd go over to John Terry's house for an opinion on racial harmony and stereotypes. Cajic, we have been through enough of that *****, I don't need to read here.
van der haart lane
Is it not true that the mentioned stereotype exists? All I said is that Levy seems to confirm the stereotype. I didn't say the stereotype is true, or accurate in general. But, if the moderators think it's inappropriate, delete it.
cajic
Daniel levy ur an ahole
Uskok
Spot on with your last comment Raging Spurs. this kind of press is not what the club or the players need. sell the guy to Ipswich Town if you want but don't let this farce continue. this is a war that Levy cannot win. Modric might stay, and even start games but the relationship is fraught for ever. no sane man will expect modric to give his all to the team and what if he makes a mistake. ( a bad pass backward leading to a goal for the opponent). the psycological torture to unravel whether it was deliberate or not for the players and the mgt ( not to think of what the press will do) is unimaginable. If he is demoted to the reserves, everyday, your first team players see him going or coming to or from the reserves matches and think "" Here goes Modric, I better check my own contract". Please let Levy get off his high horse and sell him. Modric as well as levy knows that no club will ever offer 40m again for so that Levy has said he will only sell abroad and the price tag while very unrealistic is another gambit to keep him in WHL. What do you expect him to do....????? People slag him off for throwing tantrums and been ungrateful to a club that brought him out to limelight and i beg to differ. I put it to anyone on this site that the six years contract was signed without a buyout clause with the understanding that the club would benefit from his sale very well and not prevent him from moving to a bigger club. Bigger not necessarily in terms of fanbase or stadium but in terms of competitions entered and chances of silverware. The issue was never about his salary. ( he rejected a new contract). Chelsea at that time was bigger than spurs and he opted to leave and expected levy to oblige him. not only was he refuse but levy came out with his infamous statement of " rotting in the reserves" . If you are Modric( being offered 3 times the salary you currently earn; with greater responsibility; exposure and opportunity to achieve your lifetime ambitions; and knowing that your current company will also profit handsomely from the move; yet your Managing Director refuses to see reason.....???? ) what would you do...?
Dwonder
Dwonder - what I would do is what Modric has apparently done yesterday and that is apologise for behaving like a spoilt child and turn up for work. He has done that now so hopefully the waters will calm a bit and Levy, Modric and Real Madrid can get this deal done so we can all move on.
SpuriousLife
Neither Spurs nor Real have come out and said what's been offered or asked for so lets drop this "we're asking an unfair price" crap because no one actually knows what we've asked for or what's been offered. The papers change their minds on the figures daily, just like they did with the Vertonghen saga so lets just stick to what we know as fact we have our valuation and no ones met that valuation.
Spurs Allday
RagingSpur - So you mean Levy should have get the 40 million pounds from Chelsea last season? After he make the official statement that he will not sell him last season? He earned my respect and trust, when he stay TRUE to his words. 40 million may be good, but he does what he said and that matters more than 40 millions. We will not deny Luka Modric a move he wanted, but only at a price we wanted.
what_sux
Spuriouslife .. congratulations you just won the price for the least sensible liar i have seen anywhere and on any site.
Dwonder
Levy and AVB know we will have to pay 30million to replace the No14... so offering him at 40million sends a big message out there.. buy him.. or he stays...
Yidmarks
Dwonder - put it to anyone on this site that the six years contract was signed without a buyout clause with the understanding that the club would benefit from his sale very well and not prevent him from moving to a bigger club.

Sorry, normal sane agents would have put a release clause in his contract, unless Luka Modric is a newbie agent. Or that there is no such thing of the gentlemen agreement like Luka Modric claimed to be. For your info, I am a fan of Luka Modric, will never insult him, he can go with my best of luck, ONLY after our valuation is met
what_sux
Lucas Moura's agent Wagner Ribeiro says any move to Manchester United is off as they will not up their bid for the Brazilian ace. Wanna join your pal Sandro here, Lucas Moura?
what_sux
StillRickyVilla - "We would have got it and massively strengthened the team as a result."

Really - We would have got £50m for Modric last year? Yeah, Levy's a right ballbag for not casually getting £50m. I guess Chelsea were offering £22m and £27m because Levy said Modric wasn't for sale. If he'd juuuuuusssssst said £50m then it would have all fallen into place. I'm not exactly a "Levy can do nothing wrong" guy, but that is swinging ridiculously the other way.
Bernio Villas-Spuras
Sajit - are you kidding or what? So a player wanting to leave should somehow dictate how much he should go for? That is the single most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. £35m for a very decent player that has 4 years left on his contract is us being very reasonable. Consider the risk involved in replacing a player like him, plus the capital needed to replace a player like him. If £35m is too much for Real Madrid then they won't buy him. I agree we should put a deadline on it. If a suitable offer isn't received by August 1st then we will not sell.
Bernio Villas-Spuras
So if you think that's ridiculous - What about van Persie's £30m asking price?
Bernio Villas-Spuras
Dwonder - I don't understand your comment. What have I lied about exactly? Modric has apologised and returned to training yesterday. This has been confirmed on our club official site. AVB has this morning said that he hopes the situation can now be resolved quickly with Luka either leaving or confirming he will be staying so everyone can move on. What's unclear or a lie there exactly? Either I'm missing the point or you just like coming across as aggressive and stupid on this site. It doesn't make you look big or clever, in fact it makes you look like a prize co*k! If you're the sort of person I have to exchange views with on this site I'll look at joining another site with less Neanderthal and imbecilic posters. My apologies to the sensible and knowledgable posters on here but people like Dwonder taint the waters for everyone else.
SpuriousLife
SpuriousLife - Don't need leave, just don't care those people.
what_sux
I like the way "certain people" say things like "all you do is go on about Modric" yet it's the reason they came all the way from Vital Chelsea to read our articles for the last few weeks.

Modric was quite happy to be a spurs player until Chelsea came knocking so it's pretty obvious he is a mercenary. The fact transfer negotiations drag out for weeks before the press get a whiff is irrelevant. The "fact" still remains that Modric signed a six year deal with the intention to be a Spurs player for that amount of time. Without a buyout clause why would anyone expect any different? If he wants out so bad maybe he should contribute the 8mil that Madrid aren't willing to pay to secure his "dream move".

If Spurs qualified for champions league i don't think Modric would have been such a pain in the backside this summer, but to be honest we've been extremely unlucky for the past couple of years and he should know just by looking around him that the team is good enough to be there. All this talk about "mediocre club" makes me laugh. I never even heard of Chelsea before 96.
RyanHotSpur
Spurious.......you're not alone, having read your post I couldn't understand what feck he was on about either! :0)

Ossie and Ricky wee much more adored than Modders. So were Klinsmann and Ginola, just to name 4 others who were way above him in the hearts of we fans, so I believe.

Spurious I had a convo with Dwonder the other day, as soon as he feels like his argument is threatened he comes out with a random statement that doesn't make sense. He isn't putting a good light on chelski fans unlike Bizarre_Blue IMO
MrPaddytheyid
I must admitt Bizarre_Blue is possibly the only clued up Chavski fan i've ever met. Mindless Drones suits the rest.
RyanHotSpur
Just to prove my point its on the Business or Pleasure for Andre? article right near the bottom. He's a prat and needs to stay on the VC site because its actually cringey
MrPaddytheyid
Thank you for your support one and all. As for Dwonder I'm sure he is well loved on the Vital Chelsea site I just wish he'd stay there! Dwan**r pollute your own Vital site please.

Spurious just ignore the interlectually challenged and continue posting your opinions, we all get abused from time to time, but all it shows is a total inabiity on the part of the abuser to sustain adult, and intelligent, debate or arguement.
Frank
Ample photographic evidence on SSN tonight as to why it should be Modric thanking Spurs, rather than the othr way round. He arrived for training in a 2010 reg Bentley Coupe, nice work if you can get it. Had he not come to the PL and been given his opportunity by Spurs (there were only us and Newcastle vying for his signature), he would probably have been arriving for training at Zagreb in a second hand Ford Focus, or on a bike, that's how far he has come THANKS TO SPURS.
