After good performances in the previous Premier League campaign and Euro 2012, Modric attracted the interest of several clubs including Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid. La Liga side Real are leading the race for his signature, but Los Blancos officials are growing frustrated with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy's unwillingness to reduce his 40 million Euro asking price.
Newly appointed Spurs boss Andres Vilas-Boas has kept mum on the possibility of retaining Modric's services for the upcoming season, but Redknapp told The Sun that he believed the midfielder will soon be making the switch to Real, provided Levy keeps his word.
"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," he said.
"The chairman said to him last year ‘Give us one more season and if Real come in I won’t stand in your way."
With the money obtained from Modric's transfer, Tottenham are expected to finalize a deal for Olympique Lyon's Hugo Lloris. The goalkeeper's father, Luc Lloris, indicated that all parties involved are simply waiting for Spurs to cobble together sufficient funds.
"I’m sure that Hugo’s move will be accelerated if Modric joins Real," he shared.
