Redknapp rules out star sales.

The Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has again insisted that his stars will not be leaving White Hart Lane this summer. There has already been a lot of speculation surrounding Gareth Bale and Luka Modric and the transfer window has only opened today.

Speaking to Sky Sports Redknapp said: “All of our key players are under contract. The chairman and I have discussed this and we have no intention of selling any of them.”

Redknapp appears determined to hang onto his prized assets and has warned Levy that selling them could undermine his long-term plans.

Keane nears exit.

After spending the second half of the season on loan at West Ham it appears that Robbie Keane’s Tottenham career is at an end. His contract ends next season and Keane expects Spurs to try and recoup some of his transfer fee this summer.

Speaking to the Metro Keane said: “I’ve only got one year left there so I am sure Spurs will probably want to do business on me. For me it is about enjoying my football and playing as much as I can.”

It is understood that Fulham, Newcastle and Sunderland are monitoring his situation.

Modric: It’s possible I can leave.

The Mirror has today reported that Alex Ferguson will be having a major overhaul of his squad this summer in the wake of their Champions League defeat to Barcelona. Yesterday Paul Scholes also announced his retirement from football which leaves a big hole to fill; and one which Luka Modric could fill.

The Tottenham midfielder remains one of Ferguson’s top targets this summer. His guile and energy in the middle of the pitch is something that United are severely lacking.

The player himself has spoken of his desire to play Champions League football. He said: “If there is an offer that is good for Tottenham and me, then a transfer is of course possible. When you experience playing in the Champions League, you want to keep playing in it.”
