Chelsea to sell Michael Essien for Luka Modric?

Chelsea are ready to sell Michael Essien in order to fund a move for Tottenham ace Luka Modric.

Essien struggled to rediscover his form last term after a disappointing season blighted with injuries and poor performances.

The 28-year old has been linked with a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho who is looking to bring the £18million rated midfielder to the Bernabeu this summer reports the Daily Express.


The Ghanaian may also be used as a makeweight with Chelsea perusing Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder.

Sneijder is target for both Chelsea and Manchester United but will cost any suitor a cool £35million.
