Tottenham’s new boss Andre Villas-Boas said Luka Modric is going to leave club. He also added Modric is willing to move from team and Chelsea is showing interest for Modric. In Premier League matches, Modric did an outstanding job and he always differ his game from others. Tottenham is planning to replace Modric by Portugal player Joao Moutinho. Moutinho’s performance for Portugal in Euro 2012 was nice so he may switch for Modric in Premier League.
AVB told: “I think Luka is a player of tremendous importance for this football club, and it has been like that since he joined the club,”
“I think it is fair to say we respect Luka’s ambitions and his willingness to move on, and I think Luka respects as well that he is an important player for the club who can help us move forward.”
He added: “I think ongoing discussions with these various clubs will continue until we reach an agreement which is sensible for each party.”
Villas-Boas Mentioned about Moutinho:
“He was one of the most important players at Euro 2012, of course. He had a fantastic tournament,” said Villas-Boas.
“He is also an important player for Porto and of course counting on players of this dimension will always be interesting for us.
“It does not mean he is the only target we are looking at, but eventually if something happens he is a player we are looking at with some interest.”
