Modric Won't Follow Mou to Chelsea

Luka Modric has rejected the suggestion that he could follow Jose Mourinho from Real Madrid to Chelsea.

The Special One campaigned hard to sign Croatian international midfielder Modric from Tottenham Hotspur.

The move was not as immediately successful as any party had hoped it would be, although Modric did show glimpses of his classy best form during his first season at the Bernabeu.

Reports have suggested that Mourinho is now keen to reunite with Modric at Chelsea, who in fact had a big-money bid for the player rejected by Spurs two seasons ago.

But Modric insists that he is determined to succeed in Spain, and although he did have a good working relationship with Mourinho, he wants to stick it out at Madrid.

"I'm not even thinking about the possibility I could leave Madrid this summer, but there is interest from other clubs,” Modric told the British media, according to Soccernet.

"Every kid who plays football dreams about playing for Real Madrid. It was the same with me.

"Of course I was sad when Jose Mourinho left. He was the one who insisted in bringing me to Madrid. He is a fantastic coach and I am honoured to have worked with him.

"He really impressed me. It's such a pleasure to play in his team and talk with him about football.

"I wish him all the best in Chelsea. I believe he will use all his knowledge and expertise at Stamford Bridge once again."
