Redknapp Speaks Out On Modric – Chelsea Transfer Saga

By on June 21, 2011

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp reiterates his position over want-away midfielder Luka Modric.

Spurs rejected a £22m bid for the Croatian last week after he suggested he wanted to move to a “bigger club” with Chelsea being his preferred destination. But Harry is standing firm over his stance on Modric:

“If Tottenham sell Luka then I feel it sends out a message that maybe Gareth Bale could leave and no one wants either to happen,” he told The Sun.

“I have seen that sort of thing before. West Ham decided to sell Rio Ferdinand and then all of a sudden they all seemed to go. That’s no good for any club.

“Tottenham need to keep their best players as well as add more quality to the squad if they want to mount a serious challenge for the title.

“Other top clubs raise the bar all the time and Spurs must keep pace. It’s as simple as that.”

The former Pompey manager insists Spurs has everything that Modric wants.

“Luka wants to be successful and if we can improve the squad then he can achieve that with us,” he continued.

“I don’t envisage a problem with Luka. You could not meet a more professional man or a nicer person.

“It is so important for the club to keep him. I think we have to show him our ambition, which we will do.

“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.

“We want to get back in the Champions League and we need him to help us do that.”

    Villa Boas, you better buy experience players rather than buying chickens
