Daniel Levy was described by former Tottenham chairman and star of The Apprentice Alan Sugar, as the toughest negotiator he has ever dealt with, after ENIC Group, an investment company chaired by Levy, took over the club in 2001. However, it is vital that Levy eschews from entering negotiations with any club regarding Luka Modric after categorically stating the player is not for sale, at any price.
