Redknapp: We’ll Buy Quality Players To Show Modric Our Ambition

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp insists Spurs have the ambition to keep want-away midfielder Luka Modric. Redknapp has no doubt Tottenham has the ambition Modric seeks and urges the club to bring in top talent this summer:

“I think we have to show him our ambition, which we will do,” Redknapp told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme.

“If we can add one or two good players to our squad there’s no reason we can’t have another great season.

“So Tottenham could be a great club for him to stay with for the next few years. That’s what we’re hoping for.”

The 25-year old has been subject to a £22million bid from Chelsea already this summer, which was of course immediately turned down by Chairman Daniel Levy. Levy insists the player will not be sold to any club this summer saying:

“I wish to make it absolutely clear, as I have said previously, that none of our key players will be sold this summer. We are building a team for the future to consistently play at the highest level and retaining quality players is crucial to that.

“In respect of Luka Modric, we are not prepared to sell, at any price, to Chelsea Football Club or any other club.

“We made our stance on this issue abundantly clear in writing to Chelsea. They chose to ignore it and then subsequently made the offer public.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, let me reiterate that we shall not enter into any negotiations whatsoever, with any club, regarding Luka.

“We now consider this matter closed.”
