Gossip has finally turned to news of some kind with reports that Chelsea have made a bid of £22m for Luka Modric. The club doesn’t seem to need a manager to sort out their squad for next season, which says a great deal about their set up and needless to say, the offer has been rejected.
To be fair, even Chelsea fan sites are acknowledging that £22m is derisory and if Jordan Henderson is worth £20m then maybe they can start by doubling that for Luka. Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp and the club’s resolve will be tested further as the Stamford Bridge outfit are expected to return, while the Manchester clubs are also interested.
It’s only mid-June and there is over two months to go before the end of this window so this one isn’t going to go away. Recently Harry said, “If we sell Luka we are just a selling club basically,” and while it remains to be seen if Luka does have a price, the figure certainly isn’t £22m. The only question is how high will the bidding go and is there a figure that we will eventually accept.
