Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp believes
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp revealed he had spoken to club chairman international has proved to be terrific for the Spurs in their latest fixtures and Redknapp believes the midfielder valued at £40 million by the club deserved higher wages.
Modric was heavily linked with a move to London rivals Chelsea during the summer transfer window, with the Blues making various documented attempts to lure the Croatian to Stamford Bridge. While Modric revealed he wanted to leave White Hart Lane, he was not allowed to make the move away by Levy, who said the club was not willing to part with the player under any circumstances.
Chelsea began with a £22 million bid, which was swiftly rejected by Tottenham Hotspur. responded with an increased bid of £27 million and then £30 million, both of which were also rejected by the Spurs. For a while it seemed the Blues had lost interest in Modric, but a further increased bid of £40 million on the deadline day said otherwise.
Despite a transfer request, Modric was made to stay with Tottenham Hotspur and the Blues signed Liverpool midfielder instead. Since then Modric has not been given an increase in his wages and Redknapp felt that was unfair to the player, who was valued so highly by the club. Redknapp felt the club had to convince him that they wanted him to remain with them and give him an incentive to do so.
Redknapp said while speaking to reporters:
“You can't say he is worth £40 million and want to pay him the wages of someone who is worth £5million.
That doesn't ring true does it? You have to look after the boy and I'm sure we will do that and his future is hopefully here.”
Modric contributed with an overall amazing performance and a brilliant goal against Liverpool over the weekend, in the 4-0 win over the Reds. Along with Modric, at White Hart Lane. The Spurs manager revealed he was pleased with Manchester City striker Adebayor, who had arrived at the London club on a season long loan.
Adebayor scored a goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers on his debut for Tottenham Hotspur in the away game and has now scored two goals in his first game at White Hart Lane. After his terrific performance in his first two fixtures, Redknapp was confident Adebayor would go on to score a lot of goals for his side in the current campaign. Redknapp said:
“I thought Adebayor was fantastic.
He has got a great football brain, great awareness, a great touch. He has three goals in two games. There is no reason why he shouldn't be up there with 20 goals at least this year.”
