HARRY REDKNAPP is set to offer Craig Bellamy a shot at the Champions League with a £6million swoop.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will battle against Everton in a fight to land Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.

He claimed that City hijacked his bid to sign Bellamy, 30, from West Ham in 2009 but now he wants to do business with City boss Roberto Mancini. At 30 years old, Redknapp will not want to pay over the odds as there will be no way to sell Bellamy on for future profit.

Redknapp is set to be backed with cash by his chairman Daniel Levy after securing fourth place ahead of City. And he wants Bellamy to spearhead the Champions League assault by becoming the ninth club manager of his career.

Spurs will offload Robbie Keane, while Roman Pavlyuchenko could also leave in a clear-out of strikers.

Can We Push On Next Season?

Next season will see spurs enter into the unknown, not only will we have to compete in 3 domestic competitions but will also have to juggle a Champions League campaign too. If we are being realistic, what can we hope to achieve next season?

Firstly the aim will no doubt be to finish in the top 4 again to keep the fans and players happy and to also balance the books. With the plans of a new stadium this is essential. Another aim will be to have a good run in the Champions League as this is our first time in Europe’s elite cup since its rebranding to the CL. I don’t think we will do a Leeds and reach the semi finals but I would consider it a good pop at it if we managed to get through the groups. But before all this we have the little matter of a qualifying game to overcome. If our league form is going well again next season I would suggest the Carling cup will be used for some of the youngsters to get a game, and why not? evey other top 4 club does it. As for the FA cup i’m sure Harry will do his best to win that.

Now our chances of having a good season next campaign will probably depends a lot on how we push on in the summer transfer window, who will come and who will go?. Well it’s nice for a change to be linked with some real big names and know there is a real possiblity of attracting these players now. One name that keeps popping up is Joe Cole on a Bosman and this would be a great addition. Harry should have sufficient funds to spend and can raise even more with the expected sales of Keane,O’hara,Dos Santos and Jenas which could raise over £20mil extra to add to the fund. So for all us Tottenham fans it promises to be an exciting summer. However we have already made the most significant signing of the transfer window by Modric extending his stay for a further 6 years.
So who knows what the 2010/11 season will hold, let’s just hope for once we can deliver and push on and finally live up the the expectations that we have never lived up to. Is this just a flash in the pan or are the sleeping giants finally awakening? I know one thing for certain, Arsenal are definately looking over their shoulder now.
