Barcelona will switch attention to Luka Modric after losing patience over Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish giants are beginning to believe Arsene Wenger is right when he says the Arsenal captain is prepared to stay at the Emirates for years to come, so sources have indicated Barcelona are ready to double the £16.5million Tottenham paid for midfielder Modric, 25, two years ago.

Luka Modric is a class act. A player who has wowed the White Hart Lane fans throughout his two and a half years at the club. The pint sized Croat is clearly going to get a great deal of attention and offers will probably follow and now that the club is playing at the Champions League table Harry Redknapp may find it harder to keep some of his star performers leaving.
25 year old Modric may be tempted by a move to the Nou Camp and that could worry the Tottenham boss who has his hands full keeping the likes of Inter Milan from Gareth Bale, such is the price of success. Remember a host of clubs were after the talented attack minded midfielder when he was set to leave Dynamo Zagreb and some thought it something of a coup that the north London club won the race for his signature.
One thing Spurs need to remember is that if the Catalan club comes calling expect a great deal of irritation as the La Liga giants try every trick in the book, and some new ones, to try and unsettle the player they are chasing. They will have seen how Barcelona have harangued and chased Cesc Fabregas for the best part of two years, this could just be the beginning.
