Tottenham will be "finished" if they start offloading top players such as Luka Modric this summer, according to manager Harry Redknapp.

The north London club fought ferociously with Chelsea to hang on to the Croatian last summer and the playmaker looks set to be at the centre of another transfer saga, with Manchester City and Paris St Germain linked with the player.

Spurs reluctantly sold Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick to Manchester United but Redknapp insists Modric, 26, must stay to prevent the club from sliding into obscurity. He said: "Once you start selling your best players you're finished. I don't know why Tottenham should be seen as a club that will sell its best players."
