Tottenham’s assistant manager Kevin Bond is certain that Luka Modric will still be a Spurs player at the end of the transfer window.
Chelsea have made two bids of £22million and £27million for the Croatian international, who still has five years left on his current contract. However it is still rumoured that new Chelsea boss Andres Villas-Boas will make a renewed bid of over £30million, whilst Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has also confirmed this week that he would consider selling Modric, as long as he had time to bring new players in.
On the other hand, chairman Daniel Levy has made a firm stance over the playmaker’s future, stressing that the club is not looking to sell any of their key players. Bond firmly believes that although Redknapp would allow Modric to go, Levy will hold his ground and keep the midfielder.
“The chairman has made it quite clear that Luka will not be leaving the club and I don’t see that changing at all,” he said.
“He has said categorically that he will stay at the club and I think that’s what will happen.”
