Redknapp urges Modric stay

Chelsea have made an offer and Modric has said he wants to leave, but Tottenham are refusing to let him go.

Chelsea have a reputation for illegally tapping up players, though it has not been suggested they have done this in the case of Modric, it appears similar to previous dodgy dealings the club has been involved in.

Redknapp said: “I think we have to show him [Modric] 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. That’s what we’re hoping for.”
