Luka Modric not certain to stay at Tottenham in January
Back in August, it was clear that Luka Modric was interested in a move to Chelsea and he actually asked manager Harry Redknapp to be left out of the team for a home match against Manchester City – with the Croatian feeling as though he wasn’t mentally right to line up for Tottenham.

However, the midfielder remained on the books and Redknapp has insisted the same will apply in January, despite the fact that Modric has claimed anything is still possible. The Croatian has clearly got an open mind when it comes to his future and certainly isn’t prepared to pin his colours to the mast.
Modric told Sportske Novosti: “All this talk is just in the press – I don’t know anything about any of these supposed offers.
“We are doing our best to ensure Tottenham get the results the fans and the club demand. Given the current situation, and particularly given the fact I don’t want a repeat of what I went through during the summer transfer window, I can say with almost 100% certainty that I’ll be staying at Tottenham until the end of the season.
“I would always say that, theoretically, there is a small chance I could leave, if the club receive a suitable offer and it’s one I wouldn’t want to turn down, but the reality is that I expect to stay at Spurs until June, and then we will see.
“Everything is possible, but it’s not something I’m concerning myself with. So long as I am fit and playing well, I’m happy just to see what happens. If I stay at Tottenham, nothing will change. I will give my all in every game.”
