Chelsea's £22m offer for Luka Modric is ridiculed by Harry Redknapp. The only player of genuine quality at Spurs is not exactly a wantaway so Chelsea will have to up their ante.
It maybe business as usual but the number of cases so far seem to suggest league rivals are more pro-active raiding the locker rooms of others in recent memory. One remembers the firestorm three years ago between Liverpool and Man Utd over a potential Gabriel Heinze transfer. Which if it had happened would be the equivalent of sighting Halley's comet.
