Redknapp: no chance of signing Modric in January
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has warned Chelsea they will be wasting their time if they bid for Luka Modric in January. Tottenham managed to hold on to Modric this summer despite receiving at least three offers for the Croatian, the biggest reported to have been £40m. Despite pleading to move to Stamford Bridge, Modric remained at White Hart Lane, and he has since gone on to play a big part in helping the club go on the 11-match unbeaten run which has catapulted them to third in the Barclays Premier League. Reports have suggested that Chelsea will renew their interest in the 26-year-old when the transfer window opens next month as they attempt to kickstart their title challenge.
