Tottenham are finally ready to sell Luka Modric, who is still wanted by Chelsea, according to the Daily Mirror.
Spurs have been linked with a host of players following the appointment of former Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas as manager at White Hart Lane.
And it is claimed that Croatian playmaker Modric, who has been widely tipped to move this summer, will leave in order to fund new signings.
Chelsea tried in vain to sign him in January. Real Madrid and both Manchester clubs are also said to be interested.
Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge is inevitably in the headlines following the news that he is suffering from suspected meningitis.
The Chelsea forward, 22, has been treated at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, where his condition is being assessed.
A friend of Sturridge is quoted by The Sun as saying: “The family have obviously been very concerned and worried.
“Thankfully he’s been feeling a little bit better over the last 24 hours and everyone is hoping that’s a positive sign.
“But the full facts won’t be known until the results of all the tests are back and have been examined by the experts.”
And Paris St Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed reports he is keen to sign John Terry from Chelsea.
French media quote him as saying: “We are looking for a central defender and the club is in contact with some players, but not John Terry.”
