Chelsea owner Abramovich revives bid for Real Madrid's Modric

Chelsea are preparing a bid for Real Madrid midfield schemer Luka Modric.

The Sun says Blues owner Roman Abramovich will dangle £22million in front of Real Madrid in a bid to tempt the little Croatian back to England this summer.

And their resolve will be strengthened after they missed out on Metalist Kharkiv’s Brazilian midfielder Taison, 24, who yesterday opted to sign for Shakhtar Donetsk.

Modric is not enjoying the best of season’s under ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and is still adapting to life in Spain.

And with Mourinho tipped to leave at the end of this campaign, Abramovich is ready to swoop.
