Harry Redknapp has confirmed, for the thousandth time that Luka Modric is not for sale. As both the player and Chelsea don’t seem to understand this I have taken the liberty of translating that message into various languages, maybe they’ll understand one:

Modrić nije na prodaju

modric не для продажи

01001101 01101111 01100100 01110010 01101001 01100011 00100000 01101001 01110011 00100000 01001110 01101111 01110100 00100000 01100110 01101111 01110010 00100000 01010011 01100001 01101100 01100101

— — -.. .-. .. -.-. / .. … / -. — – / ..-. — .-. / … .- .-.. .

The message is in Croatian, Russian, Binary and Morse code. Hopefully that will help get the message across. As Harry has rightly stated “We know he wants to leave and whether he writes it down on a piece of paper doesn’t really make any difference to our stance. He’s a great player and we don’t want to lose him”.

Should we decide to do any business with regards to selling Modric, it should by no means be with any of our competitors. Our competitors of course are anyone in the EPL who could afford him. If he must go, sell him to Barcelona or Real Madrid and try to get some kind of player exchange. Personally though I believe we could do well in the league again this year and if we keep Modric, he may well decide that actually, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

As if you didn’t already know, our want away midfield maestro, Luka Modric is declaring that we should understand his situation and sell him.

Now first things first, if you want to move on and be sold in 6 months time, don’t sign a 6 year contract extension!

Secondly, why would he want to go to Chelski when they clearly undervalue him, at less that half that of Torres? If he were to be sold to Chelski then we should value him as Chelsea valued Torres, in which case we should demand no less than £60m as Luka is the better player of the two. Luka needs to understand before he goes off on a rant that we won’t sell him for pennies to our rivals. It’s all well and good demanding we sell him to Chelski but if they don’t match our valuation then he won’t be going anywhere!

Now having said that, I would hope, should Levy decide to cash in on Modric, that we would absolutely not sell to our rivals, and let’s face it, our rivals are anyone in the Premier League who could afford him. So that just leaves the top European teams. If he has to go, I would not want him weakening our team and strengthening our rivals at the same time.

It’s a shame that Modric can’t realise, Chelski aren’t a top club…they’re an established money pot. How he holds a team with no history, tradition, loyalty or class in such high regard I don’t know. Their repeated attempts and successes at illegally tapping up players is quite frankly disgusting. These days it seems players just get money confused with ambition…much like Wayne Rooney.

Personally I would rather see Modric rot in the reserves for 6 years then see him playing for another premiership team.

Harry Redknapp has revealed his delight after Luka Modric pledged his future to Tottenham by penning a new deal. The Croatian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move away from the club with Manchester United known to be keen but he has now ended all the speculation by penning a contract. Redknapp never had any doubt about the 24-year-old’s future and has also paid tribute to chairman Daniel Levy for securing the deal. “He has always been happy at the club. He is a fantastic player, he is a great lad,” he told Sky Sports News. “He comes in every day and trains hard, works hard. He is low maintenance. “To have him tied up for six years, the chairman has done a marvellous job in doing that deal with him. He [Modric] could play in any team in the world in my opinion and you have got to keep your best players.
