Branislav Ivanovic has urged Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric to join him at Chelsea. Modric is also wanted by Real Madrid and Manchester United.

"Chelsea need a player like him," the Serbian defender told Sportske Novosti. "He is a really great player and wouldn't need long to adapt to a new club.

"He has been playing in England for a while now, he knows the Premier League, he has the right mentality and knows how to play on the level required at Chelsea.

"I'm sure that he needs something new in his career. He needs to move to a bigger club.

"I believe at Chelsea he would become an even better player. I urge him to come to Chelsea - he won't regret it."
