Luka Modric - Have Chelsea offered Meireles and Sturridge in return?
However, that seems to have changed now with Real Madrid looking to take him to La Liga but only at a price that suits them and not Spurs.
I will be honest. I thought Chelsea stopped being interested in the Croatian until I came across an article in The Mirror and it seems that Chelsea are reportedly looking to rekindle their interest in Modric by offering Raul Meireles AND Danny Sturridge as part of the deal!
Now of course this is only a rumour and not confirmed but if it is true, I have to ask, why Danny Sturridge?
I can understand that Raul Meireles if offered the chance to go to Spurs, based on their options in midfield if Modric left, he could link up again with AVB, so he would jump at the chance.
Sturridge is different though. I’ve had my say on Sturridge and it was interesting to see that he never made it onto the pitch late on against Wigan yesterday, but surely RDM rates him enough to keep him at Chelsea.
I just think it’s a surprising development if true and it could mean that Chelsea are still chasing another striker.
Only time will tell.
