The Luka Modric exit-saga continues, with the Tottenham playmaker believed to be a target for big-spending French outfit Paris Saint Germain.

Modric is yet again causing headaches for Spurs, and after Andre Villas-Boas admitted in his first press conference as manager yesterday that he would be sold for the right price, rumours surrounding an exit for the playmaker have gone into overdrive.

Chelsea have been mentioned once more as possible suitors for the Croatia international, while Real Madrid are also believed to be squaring up a bid.

But while Tottenham are still hoping to keep hold of their star, PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti has admitted to liking Modric, though he wouldn't go into details over a possible deal.

"I did not need to see him at the Euro to know how much talent he has," the Daily Mail reported him saying.

"I knew his capabilities before. Now he has confirmed his high quality for those who did not know.

"I know that [transfer speculation] is what matters most now, but I am sorry to disappoint you. I cannot speak publicly about the transfer market.

Luka Modric
Luka Modric is believed to be hoping for an exit from Tottenham.

"You have to understand that it would be foolish of me to speak openly about our objectives and movements in relation to quality players."

While Modric has always been the subject of transfer speculation at Tottenham, his performances for Croatia during Euro 2012 showed just how versatile he can be.

And with Villas-Boas admitting he's interested in taking Joao Moutinho, a ready-made replacement could be in the works for when an acceptable deal for Modric passes through the doors at Tottenham's headquarters.

While last summer Modric admitted that he wanted to leave Spurs for a club with more ambition, this time around the 26 year old has remained quiet as the speculation continues to surround him.

Modric's current deal at Tottenham runs until 2016. At the time of signing in 2010, the star said: "Tottenham Hotspur gave me my chance in the Premier League and I want to go on to achieve great success here with them.

"Yes, there have been enquiries from other big clubs, but I have no interest in going anywhere. Last season's Top 4 finish was an indication of where we are as a Club and I feel I can continue to improve and go on to achieve everything I want to at Spurs."

But after Tottenham failed to qualify for the Champions League in 2011, and had their place cruelly taken away this season by tournament winners Chelsea, his beliefs about the north London club seem to have changed.
