Agent hints at Modric move

Luka Modric could be heading to Serie A at the end of the season, according to the Tottenham midfielder's Italian representative. The Croatian joined Spurs from Dinamo Zagreb last summer and, after a slow start to his Premier League career, has caught the eye with a series of impressive performances. He has also earned praise from manager Harry Redknapp but speculation has surfaced about whether he will stay at White Hart Lane. Juventus have been strongly linked with a move for Modric as they look for a replacement for retiring playmaker Pavel Nedved. Fifa agent Sabatino Durante believes a transfer may go ahead, but only if Juve are able to match Tottenham's valuation of the player. "He certainly could, but a lot depends on the economic situation," Durante said in the Evening Standard. "Modric will not leave London for any less than 24million euros (£22.3million). "Modric has been one of the best midfielders in Europe for the last two or three years, because he has just the right mix of quantity and quality. "He can play in Nedved's position, just behind the strikers. Basically, he can do everything."
