AVB keen on Porto ace & Spurs look to close in on £9.5m deal – Best of THFC

How long can Spurs hold on to Luka Modric before they reach breaking point? It’s been a testing week for chairman Daniel Levy and manager Andre Villas-Boas as the Croatian midfielder went AWOL last Friday deliberately missing training and the clubs flight to Los Angeles to for pre-season tour of the United States in order to force through a move to Spanish champions Madrid. The 26-year-old has his heart set on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu but his behaviour shows a distinct lack of respect to the club where he effectively made him name. After missing out on the Champions League and sparking a period of transition with the appointment of Villas-Boas the last thing Spurs need is the distraction of a summer-long transfer saga. Modric’s immature conduct certainly threatens to undermine the clubs preparations for the new Premier League season and it’s up to Levy to decide whether holding out for £40 million is worth it.

This week on FFC do Spurs really need a new goalkeeper and which of his former clubs is Villas-Boas set to raid as he continues his recruitment process at White Hart Lane.

Quote of the Week


“Redknapp barely talked to me. I was playing really well when he hired Friedel. So I was really surprised and decided to ask him about that. Redknapp asked me to be calm, because I was his goalkeeper and he trusted me, as he told me. But that didn’t happen. In the 2010-11 season, I made only two mistakes but I didn’t give them so much importance and I didn’t think I was going to be sacked from the team because of that. Heurelho Gomes admits he is glad Harry Redknapp left Tottenham this summer
