Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric has slammed the club’s chairman Daniel Levy for allegedly breaking an agreement made between the two parties which would allow the player to leave this summer.

Modric was the subject of a £22M bid from Chelsea, an offer Spurs turned down, much to Modric’s chagrin.

The Croatian schemer recently met Levy to discuss his future, but was informed that the club have no plans to let him leave.

"A lot has been published in the press about the meeting with Levy, who gave the public a twisted account of what happened", said Modric to Croatian paper Sportske Novosti.

"I must say that I am genuinely disappointed about what Levy said to me. He didn’t care about what I was telling him. It all only convinced me further that I was right to consider moving to another club.

"I reminded the chairman of our gentlemen’s agreement when we were in Dubrovnik last summer and I agreed a contract extension with Tottenham.

"Then I had an open chat with Levy, that if a bigger club came in with a concrete offer we would consider if and agree the best solution for all concerned."

And Modric is now disappointed that this has not been the case, with the midfielder stating: "I hope we eventually go our separate ways in an appropriate manner."
