Tottenham boss Redknapp wants to use Modric cash to sign THREE new strikers

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp wants to sell Chelsea target Luka Modric to fund an attacking signing spree.

The Mail on Sunday says Redknapp is prepared to let the £35million-rated Croat fulfil his Champions League dream so he can bring in up to three top strikers, such as Giuseppe Rossi of Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao's Fernando Llorente or Manchester City's Emmanuel Adebayor on loan.

Redknapp's son Jamie made the family position clear last week when he said: "It looks like he'll still be at Tottenham at the start of the season, but if Chelsea are offering £35m it might be cutting off your nose to spite your face [to keep him]. You could buy two or three great players for that."
