As rumours continue of a third and final bid from Chelsea for Luka Modric, the first hints from within the club that the Croatian could be sold may have come from assistant Kevin Bond.
It’s thought that the final Chelsea approach could be in the region of £30m and may or may not involve players such as Daniel Sturridge but in the meantime, Bond has had this to say,
“We desperately don’t want to lose him, but everyone has a price.
“If somebody came along and the money turns your head and he did go – although the chairman is adamant he doesn’t want to sell him – then we’d have to get on with it.”
Ultimately however these words have changed nothing, but it’s inevitable that Bond’s comments have triggered off a chain of stories from newspapers desperate to re-ignite this rumour.
If the management at Tottenham must make comments about Modric, it would be beneficial if they could all sing from the same hymn-sheet. While Daniel Levy has categorically stated that Luka will not leave, both Harry and now Bond, have cast doubt on the chairman’s word.
