Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric has threatened to hand in an official transfer request if he isn’t granted permission to discuss terms with Chelsea.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in recent months and recently declared his intention to join the West London side following a £22m bid that was flat-out rejected.

However, both manager Harry Redknapp and chairman Daniel Levy stated their intentions to keep their star player who was awarded the Spurs Player of the Year.

Levy and representatives of Modric met last week to discuss the players’ future, a meeting that Levy told the Croat that he wouldn’t be sold for any price.

Modric now claims that the Spurs chairman went back on a gentleman’s agreement between the two and has threatened to hand in a request to force through a move to the Blues.

“If I have to, I will hand in a transfer request,” Modric said.

“I’m extremely disappointed by the way Levy talked to me. I had a cold welcome this his office and he talked to me arrogantly.

“He arrogantly let me know that he doesn’t want to know what I have to say.

“I don’t know what are the reasons for his behaviour but it’s his problem.

“I have been a loyal sportsman. I have played when injured and sick. I came back only a few days after operations.

“I did it as a professional but also as a man who wants to make his contribution to Spurs.

“Now the time has come to go my own way and I ask them to understand my situation.”

The news comes after Modric told the Croatian press that Levy threatened the want-away midfielder with reserve team football unless he honoured his contract which runs until 2016.
