Drogba plus cash could force Modric deal

Didier Drogba

Tottenham may be prepared to sell Luka Modric to Chelsea – if Didier Drogba arrives as part of their offer.

The Daily Star says despite boss Harry Redknapp and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy ­insisting Modric is not for sale, a deal could yet still go through with Tottenham asking for striker Drogba in return, plus £10million.

Chelsea upped their original £22m offer to £27m and then Modric slapped in a transfer request to Levy last Wednesday night in a bid to force his move. He is currently away in South Africa on Tottenham’s pre-season tour – but he is ­adamant he wants to leave to win trophies.

And the lack of marquee signings this ­summer so far has given his argument for moving on some added clout.
