Spurs ambition top of Harry’s agenda

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp wants the club to show the necessary ambition by keeping Luka Modric at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp is currently battling to keep the 25-year-old at White Hart Lane after he expressed a desire to play Champions League football next season.

Chelsea is the Croatian’s preferred destination but have, thus far, had two bids of £22m and £27m rejected.

Modric has since handed in a transfer request in order to force through a move but Redknapp is determined to keep his prized asset at Spurs claiming it would send out the wrong message if he were to be sold.

“He [Modric] has a fantastic contract but maybe he sees the chance to win the Premier League and play in the Champions League,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

“He sees it as a big opportunity for him but we want to keep him as well, he is a top player for us.

“We have to show the ambition to keep these players, your Lukas, your Rafas, your Gareth Bales.

“If he [Modric] goes, he weakens us and if you start to letting your best players go who knows where we will finish up.”
