No one hates each other like Arsenal and Chelsea. Well, Liverpool and Man Utd, Man Utd and Cheslea, Man Utd and Arsenal… But you know what we mean. And when hatred spills into the transfer market, Chelsea and are likely to act with the nobility that saw them convince Ashley Cole and John Obi Mikel join them without any dirty dealing AT ALL. And who are thy going to snatch from the arms of a rival this time? The Daily Mail says…
Roman Abramovich is chasing £15million-rated Croat midfielder Luka Modric in a bid to make Chelsea more entertaining.
Abramovich sent one of his senior scouts to Skopje to watch long-time Arsenal target Modric play for Croatia in their Euro 2008 qualifier against Macedonia.
Modric, 22, plays for Dinamo Zagreb and is regarded as one of the most gifted European players.
Chelsea believe he can achieve for them what Elano has done for Manchester City as Abramovich tries to shake off the ‘boring Chelsea’ tag gained under Jose Mourinho.
Arsene Wenger has monitored Modric for a year and sees him as a successor to Inter Milan target Tomas Rosicky.
Which would you choose, the money or the beauty?
