Harry: Modric was told he could leave

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is of the belief that Luka Modric will not be a Spurs player come the start of the season, despite negotiations with Real Madrid having reached an impasse.

Modric, 26, is eager to seal a summer move away from Tottenham, but so far the favourites for his signature, Real Madrid, have failed to reach his club's £40 million valuation of the playmaker.

ESPN understands Real are unwilling to exceed paying £33 million for Modric, who was a target of Chelsea last summer only for the Blues to fail to match Tottenham's demands.

But Redknapp, who has been replaced by Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane, anticipates that the Croatia international will leave North London, after claiming chairman Daniel Levy gave the player assurances over an exit.

Redknapp told the Sun: "I would not be sure Luka would start the season at Tottenham.

"The club would be happy to sell if they get the right money. The chairman (Daniel Levy) said to him last year 'Give us one more season and if Real come in, I won't stand in your way'."

Meanwhile, the agent and father of Hugo Lloris has suggested the Lyon and France goalkeeper could yet join Tottenham. Luc said: "I'm sure that Hugo's move will be accelerated if Modric joins Real."
