Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits they can't compete with Manchester City should they come in for Luka Modric. City have the financial clout to more than quadruple Modric's current wages - understood to be about £50,000 a week.

And Redknapp admitted: "Only Luka knows what he wants to do with his life. But if someone is going to offer £200,000 a week it could probably turn his head."
