Tottenham midfielder Modric not interested in late Man City offer

A late move from Manchester City is unlikely to interest Tottenham star Luka Modric.

The Independent says Chelsea have made the first formal summer move for Modric, lodging a £22m bid which Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy rejected out of hand yesterday afternoon.

Roman Abramovich's initial offer, which had been expected, could rise to more than £30m.

Manchester City are another possible destination for Modric, though the idea of Stamford Bridge is understood to appeal more.

Chelsea's ability to eclipse the Croatian playmaker's £40,000-a-week salary leaves Spurs with a struggle to keep him.
