HARRY REDKNAPP has revealed Spurs promised Luka Modric he could join Real Madrid a YEAR AGO.
Ex-boss Redknapp fought to keep the Croatian last summer. But Redknapp says Modric, 26, signed a new deal only after being told by chairman Daniel Levy he would not stand in his way if Madrid came in.
But Spurs have rejected Real’s £30million offer and will not let him go for less than £40m.
Redknapp, axed by Spurs in June, said: “I would not be sure Luka would start the season at Tottenham. The club would be happy to sell if they get the right money.
“The chairman said to him last year ‘Give us one more season and if Real come in I won’t stand in your way.’”
