Naturally we are all gonna get defensive over Modric. However SB is right, do you really want to keep him if he doesn't want to be there? Are we forgetting where we ended up last season WITH Modric?? And where Chelsea finished with Kalou and Benayouan?? I know Benayouan didn't play much. As for us being a feeder club does that mean Man U are because they lost Ronaldo to Real? Arsenal are because they lost Fabregas? Liverpool - Torres?? We shouted our heads off when we lost Berba but then finished 4th without him!!
