Man City make Tottenham contact for Modric

Manchester City are joining the battle for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric.

The Daily Mail says City are preparing to table a bid for Modric after Harry Redknapp branded Chelsea's £22million offer 'ridiculous'.

Spurs manager Redknapp echoed his chairman Daniel Levy by insisting his much-admired Croatia midfielder is not for sale. But high-level discussions have taken place between City and Tottenham, and a bid of nearer £30m is expected to arrive from Eastlands.

That may still not be enough, as a counter bid from Chelsea and an offer from Manchester United are expected to follow. It could take nearer £35m to prise the 25-year-old from north London.

Sources close to Modric believe City, with their vast wealth, will do everything in their power to prevent him joining one of their Barclays Premier League rivals.
