Luka Modric Deal 'Dead'

New, comments

Check out for all of the latest transfer deadline rumors and news.

Assuming that the BBC have real sources and aren't just reading the same translated comments we posted earlier, this is important news: The Luka Modric transfer rumour is - apparently - finally dead:

Reliably informed Tottenham are interested in signing Cahill before window shuts, and that Modric to Chelsea is dead #thfc #bwfc #cfcless than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Of course, there's dead and there's properly dead, and we won't know which one of those the deal is until September 1st. Meanwhile, apart from Raul Meireles and Alvaro Pereira, there's no clear sense of what Chelsea are doing. We know that Andre Villas-Boas has said that the team is definitely in for another midfielder, but as for whom that might be, or who else besides Yossi Benayoun is leaving Stamford Bridge... nobody has much of a clue.

I still think they should be going after Riccardo Montolivo, of course...
