White Hart Lane boss has no intention of selling top performers.
Harry Redknapp claims he will resign as Tottenham manager if the club sells any of his best players.
Spurs’ chances of finishing fourth and taking the final Champions League spot for the second season in a row are in serious doubt following their 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea on Saturday.
That has led to fears that Tottenham will need to sell some of their stars to balance the books as they will miss out on a £30million by not qualifying for Europe.
Red-hot: Gareth Bale has attracted interest from rival clubs after a string of impressive displays this season
Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart could all be sold but Redknapp wants to do the opposite and add to his squad.
He told the Sunday Mirror: ‘If you start thinking about selling your best players you might as well give up. What’s the point in carrying on? It effectively sends out all the wrong signals.
‘And when one player leaves the rest want to follow him straight out the door. Then you have situation where the quality of football goes into decline and you’re going backwards on the pitch.

What happens though if one of the club’s big names asks to leave?
