Redknapp anticipates City success

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes it is only a matter of time before Manchester City win the Barclays Premier League.

Spurs beat the big-spending Blues to the coveted fourth place last season and with it a crack at the Champions League in the coming season. However, City's owner Sheikh Mansour has bankrolled another amazing summer spending spree with Serbia left-back Aleksandar Kolarov the latest in a string of big-money moves.

"If they continue and the owner stays involved, and he seems very keen, then I can see them in the next few years putting together a team that will win the Premier League," Redknapp told BBC Radio Five Live's 'Sportsweek' programme.

"They can go out and sign almost anybody.

"They have come over here to New York and have almost 80 people in their party - it is just incredible.

"Money seems to be no problem, because the man who owns the club has so much.

"I genuinely think that eventually they will win the championship."

Spurs failed in their bid to land free agent Joe Cole, after the England midfielder joined Liverpool following the end of his Chelsea contract.

The north London club, however, continue to be linked with the likes of Real Madrid's veteran forward Raul and Sevilla's Brazil striker Luis Fabiano.

Redknapp said: "We have got a big squad, but having one or two new faces freshens everything up, and gives you a little push - and I think we need to do that.

"I do not think you have to spend big money in our situation. There are one or two players out there, whether it be loans or free transfers.

"You do not have to spend fortunes, but there are one or two players who would improve us."
