CHELSEA will make a £20m raid on Spurs for midfield maestro Luka Modric.

And Carlo Ancelotti has been told he can buy a £70m player like Fernando Torres if he wants.

But the Chelsea manager has targeted Croatian schemer Modric as the man he wants to add to his midfield.

As a result he would allow both Deco and Joe Cole to leave. Modric is also understood to be a target for Manchester United, but it is believed that he would prefer to stay in London and could be interested in a move to Chelsea.

Ancelotti wants to freshen up his midfi eld and the 24-year-old Modric is considered ideal signing because he has already had two seasons in the Premier League. (Daily Star)

The downside to having a great season is the influx of interest in your teams best players. Harry Redknapp may well have secured a top four finish but now he may have a fight on his hands to keep the very players that helped the White Hart Lane side achieve a Champions League finish.

Luka Modric has had a great season and its clear that he is a player who has grown in confidence and has felt able to play the game the only way he knows how, with grace. The Croatian international is lovely to watch, a flair player who can ghost past the opposition and is always thinking and ready to spring a delightful pass.

Chelsea may well want the attacking midfielder but the idea that they would make a bid as low as £20m for the 24 year old is laughable. That is less than Man City paid for Joleon Lescott! Regardless of what is offered, Spurs will surely keep saying no.

I don’t see Modric leaving the north London club any time soon as he looks like he is loving it at Tottenham and you can hardly blame him for that given what a massive turn around in fortunes the club have had.
