Harry Redknapp has moved quickly to deny that some of Spurs’ best players will leave the club if we fail to qualify for the Champions League next season. Fears may have been heightened by Daniel Levy’s comments that he would have to trim the squad.
Heurelho Gomes had suggested yesterday that stars may leave if the club didn’t claim fourth place, but Redknapp has insisted the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric are not for sale.
Harry said: “Not a chance. Absolutely rubbish. They’ve all got contracts, none of them are leaving.
“When Daniel said that we might have to trim the squad, he was talking about a lot of players on loan. That’s what he is talking about.”
The speculation will no doubt continue, but it seems that all concerned are happy. Gomes’ comments were fairly harmless, but the press will latch onto anything and they certainly won’t help.
