nah we need to keep him. This will give us some much needed credibility, it shows ambition and that we are no longer a selling club that caters to its rivals.
He'll be out for a short while until he gets his head together, but for him to assume he was leaving in the first place is ridiculous and shows how little authority/credibility we have as a club.
By going against his wishes shows we are ambitious and ready to change. people will look at us with a new found respect. This is worth so much more to us than 30 million sqiud.
I totally agree...Normally, you would say ok,you dont want to play for us then go, but it's important to look at the bigger picture...The position were in at the moment, we are so close to challenge the like's of the chav's..arse..pool..mainly because we have serious quality in Modric..Bale..Sandro,,VdV and it's quality that get's you anywhere at the end of the day..so we could bring in other's who could do a good job, but wont have the star factor, and we'll end up anywhere from 10th to 5th then you lose Bale..Sandro come Januarys window, because they know they just have to say, " let me go or I wont play "...So now's the time to make a massive statement to our player's that the club will not roll over...Because Modric is on a low wage compared to other's of his quality, its not going to hurt us that much, considering the wage's wer've been paying for King and Woody for not playing for the past few season's...It then give's Harry time to sort Modric out, by saying if he give's us a solid season, try he's best for us..then If he still wants to leave, then fair enough......We cant buy ready made quality, and unless we find a gem, this push to join the elite will fade.....So while we dont want anyone who doesnt want to play for us, Its more than about one player....Modric must stay....for now...

Thank you Remmah, I'm glad somebody agrees. It's the only logical solution... If we let Modric leave the team will fall to pieces and we'll be back at square one.
We have great talent at Spurs and some fantastic youngsters, we owe it to them to show some desire and ambition. Selling Modric will have such a knock on effect and will only breed contempt among such a promising bunch of players.
Take the money,Modric is unlikley to sign a new contract, unless they offer the wage the russians ,unlikely,he not happy,sell and get some fresh blood in not aging goalies and others on free transfers.come on harry and danny spend spend or head for the religation zone

Reward him for refusing to play and generally trying to break his contract???? http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2011/aug/23/harry-redknapp-luka-modric-contract?INTCMP=SRCH
Now I'm not precious about these things, I understand why he wants to go & don't really blame him for it, and will cheer him WHEN he next starts for us, but to reward him for it is pure madness. He shouldn't need a sweetener; he signed a contract then changed his mind. He asked to break the contract, we said no. His bonus should be getting away with the way he's since thrown his toys out of the pram! I don't think he should be punished, but letting him benefit from it is at best foolish.
