Luka Modric situation to be solved

Tottenham midfielder Luka ModricAndre Villas-Boas has stated that Luka Modric’s situation at Tottenham will be sorted out in the near future.

The north London club are currently in the United States on a pre-season tour, with the Croatian at home training by himself.

With Real Madrid pursuing the diminutive playmaker all summer long, the latest rumours are that Spurs have rejected an offer of around £30 million plus add-ons, and are holding out for £40 million.

With the player uncertain on where he will play his future next term and constant speculation blighting Tottenham’s preparations for the 2012-13 Premier League season, the Portuguese coach is keen for a solution to be reached when the team returns home.

“Luka is now doing double sessions on his own and when we get back to London we will give players time off and after that we will decide what is best for Luca to do,” he told Sky Sports.

“He is a Tottenham player obviously and he has to be in good mental state to return to training as his colleagues are a step above and we will have to work on a programme for him to work on his fitness.”
