Andre Villas-Boas has conceded the club would be willing to let the Croatian leave White Hart Lane "for the right price" but should Spurs cash in on the midfielder?
Real Madrid appear in the driving seat to sign Luka Modric and Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has now conceded the club would be willing let the midfielder leave White Hart Lane.
The Croatia international handed in a transfer request last summer in order to push through a move to Chelsea, which proved unsuccessful as he remained at Spurs for another season, but with Jose Mourinho's side looking to bolster their ranks ahead of the new campaign, Tottenham may look to cash in on the 26-year-old.
"The interest that we have from various different clubs shows the importance of the player and what he's done for Tottenham," said Villas-Boas.
"It's fair to say that the club respects Luka's ambitions and his willingness to move on and he respects the fact that he's an important player for the club and can help us move forward.
"Ongoing discussions will continue with these clubs until we reach an agreement which is acceptable for each party."
