Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted he may sell Luka Modric in order to improve the squad.

Spurs have, thus far, taken a strong resolve over the sale of Modric with Chelsea proving the most likely destination should the North London side opt to sell their star midfielder.

The Blues have seen two bids turned down for the diminutive playmaker but are expected to return with a third bid upwards of £30m.

Redknapp’s stance of the player appears to have shifted this week and he admits he could use the cash from the sale of the Croatian to bolster his squad elsewhere.

However, he wants no repeat of the Dimitar Berbatov sale in 2008, which was concluded in the dying embers of the transfer window but left Spurs short up front.

“We’ve got two options with Luka; either we keep a fantastic player or we sell him, get the money and bring in four players and have a better team,” Redknapp is quoted as saying in a number of national newspapers today.

“I want him to stay but if he’s going I want the opportunity to get other players in.

“There’s no chance the chairman (Daniel Levy) will sell him on the last day of the transfer window. He did that with Berbatov a few years ago and ended up with no strikers. He won’t do that again.

“It’s a difficult situation for Modric. We all love our club and everything, but what would you do if someone offered to treble your wages?

“He’s had his head turned by the chance to play in a team that could win the Champions League this season and I think people can probably understand that.”

With Redknapp currently facing an injury crisis in midfield, moves for Scott Parker or Lassana Diarra have been mooted but a deal for Emmanuel Adebayor appears more imminent at the moment.

Adebayor, who spent time on loan with Real Madrid last season, is currently out of favour at Manchester City and despite the Togolese forward making a name for himself with rivals Arsenal, Redknapp believes the Spurs faithful will welcome the 27-year-old with open arms.

“I’m sure they will take to him because he fell out with Arsenal,” Redknapp added.

“Arsenal fans hate him so Tottenham fans will love him. He upset them so he’ll be a hero here.”
