This source suggests that Harry Redknapp is all set to save this former Tottenham stars ailing Anfield career!
SPURS are trying to re-sign Liverpool’s Robbie Keane.
And a bid anywhere near the £20m the league leaders paid in July could see the Irishman make a January return to White Hart Lane.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp wants to test how much patience Rafa Benitez has lost with the striker, who was an unused sub during yesterday’s 3-1 win at Blackburn.
But even if Rafa looked to cash in, the Anfield board would need convincing of the merits, as the Merseysiders’ would inevitably have to accept a loss.
They agreed to pay Spurs £20m in instalments, which means Redknapp could offer part of the summer fee and waive the estimated £10m still owed.
Keane’s dream move to Merseyside has gone sour just five months into his Anfield career as he’s struggled with confidence and form.
He effectively has until the end of the month to convince his manager Spurs’ interest should be rebuffed as Rafa plots a radical shake-up of his squad in January. (News of the World)
Ok, so let’s look at this carefully. Yes Robbie hasn’t exactly sparkled thus far, but it’s still early days and given the anger he generated by leaving the north London outfit in the first place (shortly after making it clear he wouldn’t leave the club) and supposedly to the club he has loved since his childhood would he really consider a move back to White Hart Lane and would Redknapp make the move outlined by this source? One thing is for sure the Irishman had a fantastic spell at Spurs and would be a great addition in a squad that has shown what it is capable under their new leadership. What do Tottenham fans think, could this really happen?
