The bidding for Luka Modric is underway with Chelsea moving in with a £22m bid for the talented Croatian. It was immediately rejected by Tottenham; but I’m sure Abramovich’s pursuit will end there.
In the papers this morning there have been a mixed bag of stories that include a defiant Villa set to appoint McLeish; Kevin Nolan’s exit leaves Joey Barton devastated, while Cesc Fabregas claims that Arsenal hold all the cards with regards to his future.
