Modric may have talked himself out of Spurs pay-rise - even if he does stay

Luka Modric may have talked his way out of a pay-rise at Tottenham.

The Independent says he is set to release a statement this week backtracking on comments about wanting a move to Chelsea.

Before Modric's interview, chairman Daniel Levy was prepared to give the player a new contract above his current £45,000-a-week deal to reflect his contribution last season.

However, they now feel that it would send out the wrong signal to reward him so soon after speaking out. Nevertheless, he is likely to get a new deal before the end of the year.
