Redknapp: Modric To Get Improved Deal

By on August 23, 2011

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp expects chairman Daniel Levy to hand want-away midfielder Luka Modric an improved deal to stay at White Hart Lane.

The 25-year old has reportedly “had his head turned” by the Chelsea’s interest with the Sun claiming that Modric has gone on strike and refused to travel to Manchester United last night, something Redknapp later deisputed.

However, both Redknapp and Levy remain adamant that Modric will not be sold with the former Pompey manager suggesting Modric will land a new deal to stay in North London.

“I think Daniel [Levy] has said he will sit down with Luka in a month or so and have a chat with him and a look at his contract,” he told talkSPORT.

“I want to keep him for sure. I just felt that if he didn’t want to be here that much that maybe we might have to sell him. If people don’t want to play for you, you might have to sell him and go and get three or four players in.

“As a player I couldn’t be happier to keep Luka Modric, he’s a fantastic footballer and as I’ve said many times you couldn’t meet a nicer boy.”

    If a club like Man Utd or Chelsea FC should ask Harry to be their manager,i am sure that he will give his resignation letter in less than 5 minutes. If Harry likes Modric as he always claim,he should support him to cross over to Chelsea n fulfill his dreams n not to praise him in the public n then stab him at the back.
