Redknapp makes Modric admission

Published Add your comment

Harry Redknapp knows Luka Modric could be distracted by talk of a move to Manchester City after Roberto Mancini declared his admiration for the Tottenham playmaker on Friday.

Redknapp had to omit Modric from his starting line-up at the start of the season after he was unsettled by a number of big-money bids from Chelsea, and the Croatian has conceded he does not know if he will be at Spurs next year.

Redknapp concedes the midfielder, who is reported to earn around £50,000 a week at Tottenham, is likely to be interested in hearing about Mancini's comments. "I would think if someone is going to offer him £200,000 a week it could probably turn his head a little, yes!" Redknapp said when asked about City's apparent overtures.
