Harry hoping to splash the cash

Spurs’ controversial 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday leaves them

seven points behind Manchester City in the race for the

fourth-place finish in the Premier League which carries the reward

of Champions League qualification. The north Londoners enjoyed a

dramatic run to the last eight of Europe’s premier club competition

this season having finished fourth in 2009-10. They now look set to

miss out on a return to the Champions League next season and

Redknapp insists the club will go backwards if they do not

strengthen this summer. He said: “I hate when people say, ‘Oh well,

if they don’t make the Champions League, they’re going to sell

(Gareth) Bale or they’re going to sell (Luka) Modric – that’s not

the way forward. “The way forward now is to say, ‘Okay, let’s go

and find one or two top-drawer players and go and move on again and

let’s get back in the Champions League’. “I haven’t spoken to

(chairman) Daniel (Levy) about it but I’m sure he’s got to be

positive. Where do you go if you don’t do that? “Chelsea looked

like they might have dropped out of the top four round about

transfer-window time, so they went and spent £75million on two

players because they wanted to stay in there. “I’m not saying we

should spend £75million but we need to keep positive and

moving forward.”
