Modric dashes United talk

25 August 2009 10:32
Luka Modric has moved to distance himself from speculation suggesting he is a target for Manchester United. Reports had suggested that Red Devils chief Sir Alex Ferguson was weighing up the merits of a move for Tottenham's diminutive playmaker. However, the Croatia international claims he has no knowledge of any such interest and insists he is happy to remain at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future. "I don't know anything about the Manchester United link," Modric told Sportske Novosti. "I read about it in the newspapers, and one paper even published quotes from me saying I was happy to be on Sir Alex Ferguson's radar. "But the truth is that I didn't say anything to anybody about this. They were not my words. "I feel great at Tottenham and I have given no thought to moving to a different club. My contract runs until 2013 and I am just thinking about staying. "I wouldn't be surprised if Tottenham offer me a new contract as that is something which happens in England. But, even if that doesn't happy, my feelings will not change. "I am happy at White Hart Lane and I will continue to give my all for Tottenham, as I always have." Modric has also expressed his delight at Spurs' impressive start to the season, with the 23-year-old of the opinion that Harry Redknapp's side are capable of claiming a top-six finish this term. "Everything is perfect, I really can't complain," he added. "I think the main thing is that the team has stayed together over the summer. Now we are a year stronger and also coach Redknapp has made us into a real team. "The big four are still way ahead of the others, and Manchester City are now a real threat as well. "But we also have big ambitions. We don't want to talk about fighting for the top four, but our aim is to be in the top six at the end of the season. I think we are good enough to do that."
