Guillem Balague sure loves to stir the pot, doesn't he? If you're not familiar with Mr. Balague, he's a journalist for The Times who has also written for numerous other publications and made all kinds of high profile TV and radio appearances. Very often, he tweets out transfer rumors with a claim that the source is a personal source of his, which is really putting his neck on the line. Occasionally, stuff he says turns out to be rubbish. At least 50 percent of the time, he's first to a massive story. So, make what you will of this tweet about Luka Modric leaving Tottenham Hotspur and finalizing his transfer to Chelsea FC:
Was told today by a top source at Spurs that Modric will go too. If that is the case, if that happens... wow!!
He goes on to say in subsequent tweets that A. He is not guaranteeing anything and B. His source is not Daniel Levy. Whether or not this is actually true remains to be seen, but based on his track record, I would be extremely surprised if Balague was making this up and there was not someone inside the club who actually told him that Modric will be sold.
If more comes out of this in the coming days, we'll write more about it. We've spoken about the Modric transfer saga ad nausem, so I'm just passing along the info at this point. If I have to do any more speculating or analyzing before it's official, I'll go insane.
