Tottenham boss Redknapp scoffs at Taarabt Barcelona, Real Madrid claims

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has mocked Adel Taarabt after his disparaging interview this week.

The midfielder is currently on loan at QPR, but claims he had an offer from Arsenal which he should have accepted.

Taarabt also claimed he would not be returning to White Hart Lane when his loan spell ends.

But Redknapp said: "He said that Barcelona and Real Madrid are coming in for him. That is where he sees himself going next year.

"Barcelona have not been on the phone today and nor have Real Madrid. When they ring us, we are going to ask a lot of money for him.

"He said that he should have gone to Arsenal which is not a clever thing to say when you are playing for Tottenham. He will come back next season unless Barcelona or Real pick up the phone."
