Even if the San Siro side offered this deal PLUS a million bacon sandwiches, it would still be turned down by White Hart Lane boss Harry Redknapp, who apparently loves bacon sarnies.

Tottenham could be about to have their resolve tested by a bid from Inter Milan for Luka Modric.
The Croatian has been earmarked as a long-term replacement for either of Inter’s current midfielders Esteban Cambiasso or Dejan Stankovic.
Jose Mourinho instigated the Serie A side’s interest in the 25-year-old when he was in charge at the San Siro and now, according to reports in the Italian media, the club are preparing a bid of £15m plus striker Goran Pandev.
Modric has faced his Italian suitors on two occasions this season and club captain Javier Zanetti has seen enough of the little playmaker to know he would add to his side.
The Argentinean said: “Modric is a great footballer and we have suffered from him already in two games in the Champions League.”
Remember how Harry Redknapp made it clear he would not accept any offers for Croat playmaker surpeme Luka Modric? Remember also how the club reportedly slapped a £50m on the 25 year old Tottenham midfielder. Therefore the offer of £15m and a player who barely figures at Inter Milan is clearly not going to be accepted.
Goran Pandev was clearly a Jose Mourinho signing and a player who neither Rafa Benitez and now Leonardo rate and as a result there is much talk of the Macedonian leaving the San Siro but can see no way how this deal would even come close to fruition.
Tottenham could well do with another striking option but a move for the 27 year old former Lazio man would hardly answer Redknapp’s search for a prolific goalscorer after all the powerfully built forward is hardly a goal machine and never has been.
White Hart Lane front-men Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko are all apparently available for any decent offers as the Spurs boss has not been too impressed with their efforts in terms of finding the back of the net. As a guide, that quartet scored 56 goals from a combined 98 starts, this term the Premier League total is 11 goals from 40 starts. Enough said.
