Croatia international Luka Modric could leave Tottenham and move to Juventus in the summer, according to the midfielder's representative. The Turin-based side are keen to find a replacement for Pavel Nedved who has announced that he will retire from the game in the summer. Juve have identified Modric, who moved to White Hart Lane in a £16.5million switch last summer, as a possible target. Asked whether Modric could be heading to Claudio Ranieri's team, agent Sabatino Durante claimed: "He certainly could, but a lot depends on the economic situation. "Modric will not leave London for anything less than 24million euros. "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."
