Manchester City could have a hand in Harry Redknapp leaving Tottenham this summer.

The Mail on Sunday says Redknapp is close to parting company with Tottenham and could leave before the end of the month.

If Redknapp leaves, he could find a lucrative escape route in the Middle East. The former West Ham and Portsmouth boss was targeted by Dubai-based outfit Al Ahli two years ago and the more fashionable Abu Dhabi club Al Jazira, owned by Manchester City supremo Sheik Mansour, are currently without a manager.
