Transfer news: Luka Modric will leave Tottenham if the club are happy with the offer
Tottenham star Luka Modric will be allowed to leave White Hart Lane but only for the right price, Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed.
The Croatia international has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea in recent weeks and is believed to be on his way out of north London.
“Luka Modric is a player of tremendous importance for this football club,” the new head coach said. “The interest that he’s had from various different clubs shows his importance.
“It’s fair to say we respect Luka’s ambitions and his willing to move on and he respects the fact that he’s an important player for the club.
“Ongoing discussions with various clubs will continue until we reach an agreement which is sensible for each party.
“A player of this importance is not easy to part company with. The chairman is a person who respects the values of the football club and only with the right offer will we take that step.”
