Redknapp: Modric future is uncertain

Harry Redknapp has admitted Luka Modric could be distracted by talk of a move to Manchester City after Roberto Mancini declared his admiration for the Tottenham playmaker.

Redknapp had to omit Modric from his starting line-up at the start of the season after he was unsettled by a number of big-money bids from Chelsea, and the Croatian has conceded he does not know if he will be at Spurs next year.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the 26-year-old, but their neighbours City may enter the race for the star this summer after manager Mancini spoke in glowing terms about the player for the first time.

And Redknapp conceded the midfielder, who is reported to earn around £50,000 a week at Tottenham, is likely to be interested in hearing about Mancini's comments.

"I would think if someone is going to offer him £200,000 a week it could probably turn his head a little, yes!" Redknapp said.

Whether Redknapp remains at Tottenham or moves to take over the England job could end up being a key factor in whether Modric remains at White Hart Lane or pushes for a move again this summer.

The former Dinamo Zagreb man has played a key role in Redknapp's transformation of Tottenham and the 65-year-old concedes the club needs players like Modric if they are going to continue to progress.

"Only Luka knows what he wants to do with his life," Redknapp added. "We want to keep him here. We need to keep him. We love him. He is a fantastic player."Harry Redknapp has admitted Luka Modric could be distracted by talk of a move to Manchester City after Roberto Mancini declared his admiration for the Tottenham playmaker.
