Modric happy at the Lane

Modric has caught the eye this season during Spurs’ successful

Champions League campaign. The Croatian playmaker has been linked

with Italian giants Inter Milan and Juventus in recent weeks. But

the 25-year-old, who joined on a six-year contract from Dinamo

Zagreb in 2008, signed a new long-term deal just last May. Mordic’s

agent, Nikki Vuksan, reiterated that he has no intention of leaving

White Hart Lane this summer and said Modric would only go if Spurs

take the shock decision to cash in on one of their prized assets.

“They are just rumours,” Vuksan told “I have read

comments from different people on this subject, but the reality is

that Luka has a long and important contract with Tottenham. “Last

summer he extended it until 2016 and he’s very happy in London. If

a bid should arrive it would be up to the club to evaluate it.

“Tottenham want Modric to talk with club officials and, to my

knowledge, this has not yet happened, so at the moment I can rule

out any surprises.”
