Stamford Bridge target could be bought from White Hart Lane.
Tottenham Hotspur assistant manager Kevin Bond has admitted the club could still sell midfielder Luka Modric – if the price is right.
Chelsea have already had two bids of £22million and £27million rejected by Spurs and are preparing another in the hope of signing the 25-yrear-old.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp branded the Blues’ first bid as “ridiculous” and also gave short shrift to the second.
The Croatia international has submitted a transfer request to join the Blues but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said the playmaker is going nowhere.
Modric still has five years remaining on the long-term contract he signed last summer, with Levy insisting he is not for sale “at any price”.
That claim has been contradicted by Bond who believes every player can be sold if the money is right.
“We desperately don’t want to lose him, but everyone has a price,” he said.
“If somebody came along and the money turns your head and he did go – although the chairman is adamant he doesn’t want to sell him – then we’d have to get on with it.”
“Transfers are part and parcel of the game but you don’t want to lose your best players and he certainly is one of our best players.”
