    Manure, dream on

    None of the above mentioned clubs or any other have absolutely no chance of signing Modric. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said in an article today that no key players would be sold. Modric has recently signed new 5 year contract and said that he has no intention of leaving Spurs. Please stop these ridiculous articles. Find something else to speculate about.

  3. PIP says:

    De Gea and Varane seem likely. One other but not Modric. Levy seems quite sure of this.

    Any other dealings beyond these,I would imagine, will be dependant on departures.

    Champions is the word you are looking for Blackrat, Champions.

    Think SAF should do anything in his power to lure Luka Modric to the club. His creativity and eye for a pass is Paul Scholes’esque and for me he is the best possible replacement. He was made for United!
