Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp today reiterated his stance that none of the clubs key players will be leaving this summer.
Reports this morning suggested that Manchester United are willing to part with £25m to secure the services of Luka Modric as a replacement for the recently reitred Paul Scholes.
Gareth Bale is another who is rumoured to be leaving the club with Spurs reportedly willing to listen to offers around the £50m mark.
Redknapp, however, insists the duo aren’t for sale saying “All of our key players are under contract. The chairman and I have discussed this and we have no intention of selling any of them.
“They are at a top club and we are looking to improve the squad in the summer, not weaken it, in order to push for a Champions League place again next season.”
Modric however has admitted he is unsure as to whether he will be plying his trade at White Hart Lane next season with Champions League football his ultimate goal.
“Everybody wants to know what will happen with me.” he said
“I’m trying to stay calm as my national team has a really important match coming.
“So I will tell you the same as all ways – my club status is the same as it was before.
“But of course, if there will be an offer which will be good for Tottenham and for me also, then a transfer is of course possible.
“That doesn’t mean that I’m bothered with leaving Tottenham – I’m not thinking about that every hour and every minute.
“I’m happy at White Hart Lane – my status is great, the fans like me and I do have everything I need.
“But then again – when you experience playing in Champions League, you want to keep playing in this tournament.”
