    I've never played the transfer muppet game before but my Spurs supporting colleague has just piped up that we are suppoed to be in for Modric for £30M.

    He's found something on Caughtoffside.com

    Sounds like a lot of bollocks to me...

    Well if something's on Caught Offside that's more than enough incentive to start a thread.

    I love that he 'found something on caughtoffside' when in reality it was just some bloke with internet access and a willingness to believe what some spazzer wrote.:lol:

    Does to me too. Harry has been sayng for months now that Modric is definitely not for sale. Fergie would never pay that for Modric either.

    I want to write for this website. The most piss easy job going.

    Top 3 phrases.

    An inside source has revealed...
    It is rumoured that...
    A source close to the player has said...

    All followed by a complete lack of qoute or any sort of sensible evidence.

    I could have a crack at this journo lark.

    Another rumour on caught offside the other day was that Liverpool are looking to offload unsettled striker Glen Johnson.

    I think that sums it up.

    Spurs wont sell Modric unless they miss out on the CL spot this year, he'd be a great buy for us. As for the price, well he cost them £16M right? so given how much he has developed I'd say you can add at least £10M on to his worth now.

    Caughtoffside is the worst site for football transfer news. Last week I read Real were going to pay 60M + a player to Tottenham for Gareth Bale. Could have just posted this in another Modric thread.

    I think he meant the price and not the player. 30M is a little too much I think.

    I don't think he'd walk straight in. Anderson has hit some form, Fletch can do better, Carrick is improving and Scholes just keeps going. I'll give you that he'd be a good squad player to rotate in and out. But he wouldn't walk straight in.

    £30m for a squad player is a little rich.

    It's how much you pay these days, nothing humorous about it. Which other class midfielder are you going to get for under £30m?

    We bought Berbatov for £30m, whether he was worth it or not, it's how the market is. Carrick was £17m, before prices inflated even more, Hargreaves £17m. Modric is clearly a better player than both Carrick and Hargreaves, so of course his price tag is going to be around a higher mark.. Anderson was 30m Euros or something? According to wikipedia anyway. Modric is further on in his development so of course he would have a price tag like that.

    He would be more of a first team player, he'd play his way into the first eleven. Scholes is going to retire soon, Modric would be a good replacement for him. We're obviously not going to get someone like Fabregas.

    Im sorry but if you think Modric would be a squad player you live in a different world.

    He would be in our strongest XI if we signed him.

    What in the bloody bollocks is wrong with you? We don't buy a player like Modric to keep him on the bench and there is no way in hell we would even buy Modric when we still have Scholes. IF we buy Modric, then it is to replace Scholes. Modric a squad/bench player? Are you on crack?

    £30m's ridiculous. Modric isn't worth a penny over £28m, give or take a couple of million.

    You are comparing players who play in different positions. Carrick and Hargo are more defensive midfielders while Modric is more attacking and a playmaker. Man City got Silva for less than 30M, Madrid got Ozil for less than 30M. Tottenham got VDV for less than 30M. There are players for less than 30M even today.

    Silva, Ozil and VDV don't play central midfield, Modric does.

    You cant play Silva, VDV or Ozil in a 2 man midfield, you can with Modric and Spurs do.
