Harry Redknapp has been forced to deny yet again that Tottenham will sell Luka Modric this summer amid reports the Croatian playmaker is a target for Manchester United.

If reports are to be believed, the north Londoners are likely to have their resolve tested during the transfer window as the Barclays Premier League champions look to make the 25-year-old the successor to Paul Scholes.

Redknapp, however, has scoffed at speculation suggesting £20 million would be enough to prise Modric away from White Hart Lane.

"£20 million for Luka? They've got to be dreaming, he's such a fantastic player," said the Spurs boss.

"You know, we've enquired about players and we're getting quoted more than that for people that couldn't lace his boots, so it's not a go-er.

"I wouldn't put a value on him, I wouldn't want to sell him. He's one of those boys every day you come into work for, and that's what it's about now."


Modric, who moved to White Hart Lane in 2008, continues to impress with his application and artistry in the heart the Spurs midfield, and is also revered as a committed professional - something his manager has paid testament to.

"I come in and I see him and he's just a great guy, he trains, gets on with the job, never complains, he loves his football," added Redknapp.

"He's the most low maintenance, easy to handle professional you've ever seen and he's a fantastic player. So he's the last player you ever want to see leave your football club - he's irreplaceable."
