Branislav Ivanovic has called on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric to join him at Chelsea.
Ivanovic said: “Chelsea need a player like him,”
“He is a really great player and wouldn’t need long to adapt to a new club.
“He has been playing in England for a while now, he knows the Premier League, he has the right mentality and knows how to play on the level required at Chelsea.
“I’m sure that he needs something new in his career. He needs to move to a bigger club.
“I believe at Chelsea he would become an even better player. I urge him to come to Chelsea – he won’t regret it.”
Chelsea have been linked with Modric for some time, and had bids rejected for the Croatian last summer and with Harry Redknapp now gone, many people expect big names to leave White Hart Lane.
However, Modric is also being watched by Manchester United, Barcelona and AC Milan.
