Spurs do not want to lose a player or Modric’s calibre and Harry Redknapp will try to lure Joe Cole away from Liverpool should the Croatian join United.
A source at White Hart Lane said; The word is that Sir Alex has already spoken directly to Harry and said how much he admires Modric and how much he wants him.
“And as much as Harry wants to keep him he know United can make an offer we just can’t refuse.
“So Harry’s busy now trying to do the Joe Cole deal to bring in a new playmaker to compensate for the expected departure of Luka”.
