The one area where Spurs don’t look to need any strengthening is in midfield and although there is potential for a Charlie Adam or Scott Parker to come in as cover, it’s hard to see how they would justify a place above Sandro or Hudd.
The priority for Harry Redknapp this summer will be to hold on to Sandro, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale as the rumours increase. Today we’ve seen suggestion of a swap involving Modric for Berbatov! If the manager can keep them all, midfield selection for next season could be very interesting indeed and if Harry has a fully fit squad to choose from, just who would be in your dream midfield?
While many of us would like to see Niko Kranjcar stay, it looks less likely by the day that he’ll be at the Lane next year so that leaves us with Lennon, VDV, Modric, Bale, Hudd, Sandro and Pienaar at least.
Sunday saw a shuffle that led to Hudd and Sandro in the same team which is something that many thought couldn’t happen. That put Modric on the left but if Bale comes in surely he has to play there?
The more you think about it the more confusing it gets but personally I’d like to see a five-man first choice midfield of VDV, Bale, Modric , Sandro and Hudd which leaves Lennon as the odd man out and possibly on his way.
While injury will dictate much of this, on the occasions when all players are fit this is going to be a really interesting dilemma for Harry. If you were him, what would your ideal midfield be?
