Harry bemoans 'crazy' wages

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has admitted Manchester City's spending power has made it harder for his club to compete during the transfer window.

• Redknapp keen on Mata
• Chelsea weigh up Modric bid

Tottenham, who missed out on Champions League qualification after finishing fifth last season, have yet to show their hand in the transfer market this summer, although they have recently shown an interest in Valencia's Juan Mata.

City, however, have recently brought in Sergio Aguero from Atletico Madrid, for a fee thought to be around £38 million, bolstering head coach Roberto Mancini's already impressive attacking options, which include Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko.

Redknapp told the Sun: "Imagine what their wages will be. It's incredible. They are all on 100 grand a week plus. Wages have gone crazy.

"It's gone beyond belief and made it really hard to compete for top players. If you want to be a top-four side, it's difficult because we can't pay those kind of wages.

"Our chairman Daniel Levy runs the club well, we get 36,000 fans, you're not going to put the club in hock. How do you compete with the Man Citys of this world?"
