Chelsea bid 'ridiculous'

Harry Redknapp has mocked Chelsea’s reported bid of £22million for star midfielder Luka Modric as ‘ridiculous’, saying that if their London rivals want their best player they had better raise the fee.

Chelsea are on the hunt for new players after their current lot showed their age in the run-in last season, and in particular they’re looking for a creative midfielder who can take the burden off Frank Lampard. But Redknapp has rebuffed their attempts to get the Croatian, and they will either have to cough up more dough or look elsewhere.

‘Luka is not for sale. If there has been a bid of £22m that is ridiculous,’ said Redknapp. ‘There are people being sold for £20m who are not fit to lace Luka's boots.’
