Harry Redknapp is hopeful Tottenham can seal a deal for Ajax’s Jan Vertonghen – but speculation is increasing that the manager might walk away from White Hart Lane.
Several newspaper reports on Sunday have linked Redknapp to Chelsea as he continues to battle with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy over a lucrative new contract.
The veteran manager has one year left on his existing deal and wants at least a two-year extension. But although Levy was though to be originally offering that when Redknapp was a candidate for the England job, the deal is no longer on the table.
The uncertainty could be fatal for Tottenham, who look set to lose Luka Modric during the close-season and may be forced to sell Gareth Bale too.

What a difference a penalty kick makes. Had Harry Redknapp and Tottenham fans been offered fourth spot at the start of last season they would have bitten your hand off but Chelsea’s gain is very much Spurs’s loss and now the White Hart Lane side must deal with the consequences of missing out on Champions League football and there is growing speculation that Daniel Levy may get a phone call from Roman Abramovich.
That phone-call now seems less likely to have anything to with a bid for Luka Modric, now that Eden Hazard has moved to Stamford Bridge, but could be in relation to wanting to procure Harry Redknapp to steer the Chelsea ship. If such a call does indeed come, what then?
Clearly Redknapp is not above making controversial managerial switches, having gone from Portsmouth to Southampton and back again, but one wonders if the Russian billionaire would turn to the 65 year old former West Ham man as a long term permanent replacement for Andre Villas-Boas?
