Tottenham are ready to offer Luka Modric a £3.5million loyalty bonus to ensure he stays.

A new long-term contract worth a club-record £100,000 per week has been on the table since last year.

It has become clear, however, that offer is unlikely to be enough to  persuade Modric to sign as he knows he can earn significantly more elsewhere.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has renewed his attempts to get the Croatia midfielder to sign a five-year deal, but the player wants to wait until the summer before deciding his future.

Due to Spurs’ stringent wage structure, £100,000 a week is as much as they can offer and so are exploring the option of giving Modric a hefty bonus instead.

Whether or not Harry Redknapp stays at Spurs in the summer is likely to have a major bearing on Modric’s decision.

The Tottenham boss ruled himself out of a high-profile managerial job available, saying:  ‘Chelsea? That’s all I need! I wouldn’t be able to come back to north London, so I think I’ll pass.’

However, the other high-profile vacancy, that of England manager, is the one Redknapp is favourite to fill.
