Tottenham chairman Levy won't budge on price for Real Madrid target Modric

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is sticking to his guns over an asking price for Luka Modric.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is sticking to his guns over an asking price for Luka Modric.

He has rejected offers for Modric from Real Madrid — the latest being £30million plus £8m in add-ons, says the Daily Mail.

Levy has set a £40m asking price and will not accept a penny under that mark, while the Spurs supremo is also unhappy with the structure of Madrid's previous offer.

Discussions between both clubs are on-going but the Spanish side are currently unwilling to budge on their latest bid, placing considerable doubt over the transfer given Levy's tough stance.

Spurs' resolve to recoup £40million for a player they signed for £16.5million from Dinamo Zagreb four years ago has been strengthened by Modric's recent training boycott.

The Croat failed to turn up to two pre-season training sessions and also skipped the club's tour of the US, infuriating the Tottenham hierarchy in the process.
