While we await official word from Tottenham with regard to Chelsea’s ‘improved’ bid of £27m for Luka Modric, few Spurs fans are in any doubt as to what the answer will be.
The whole business is starting to get a little ugly so what is the best solution? If Levy can’t go back on his word, do we have a sulking player on the pitch or even on the bench, when we could be moving on and buying players that do want to be here?
It does all beg the question, what is the point of a £27m bid? It still doesn’t come close to the player’s true value but what, if anything should we accept?
Two ‘solutions’ were suggested around the web yesterday – one was £30m plus Drogba and another was to sell the player outside of the Premiership.
While it’s tempting to ignore the stories, the fact is they aren’t going to go away so where should Spurs go from here?
