Harry Redknapp: Chelsea’s £27m Bid For Luka Modric Is ‘Pretty Poor’

White Hart Lane boss flatly rejects Stamford Bridge offer.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has dismissed Chelsea’s offer of £27million for Luka Modric as ‘pretty poor’.

The Spurs boss even goes on to say a bid of over £30million will not be enough to tempt the club to sell their star playmaker.

Redknapp also insists chairman Daniel Levy is so intent on keeping Modric that a transfer request would not change his stance.

After seeing a £22million bid knocked back for Modric last month, Chelsea reportedly returned with an improved £27million offer yesterday.

Modric has declared he wants to leave Tottenham to complete a “dream” move to Chelsea, and has accused Levy of “twisting the facts” about a meeting between the two concerning his future last week.

The 25-year-old claims the chairman reneged on a deal to allow him to leave this summer for a bigger club, but Spurs insist no such agreement exists.

Redknapp is adamant Modric will not be sold and laughed at Chelsea’s offer for the Croatian international.

“I still think £27million is a pretty poor offer in my opinion for a player of that ability,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“It wouldn’t be anywhere near what I value him at if he was for sale, but he is not for sale.

“There is nowhere to go with it really. That’s the end of it. The chairman has made his stance. He is not for sale and that’s it.”

When asked whether a bid of £30million may change the club’s stance, Redknapp said: “I don’t think so. I honestly value him way in excess of that.”
