Chelsea unimpressed by Tottenham claims over Modric pursuit

Chelsea are unimpressed by claims coming from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over their pursuit of Luka Modric.

The Mail on Sunday says Levy has accused Chelsea, who are currently managerless following the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti at the end of last season, of making their offer public, something which often unsettles players.

Chelsea described that as 'nonsense' but were left in no doubt that any Modric deal will not be straightforward.

The clubs were involved in a bitter row after Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's recruitment of Frank Arnesen as sporting director in 2006, when Tottenham initially accused them of poaching their man, before accepting £5m in compensation.
