Reports in the Daily Mail today suggest Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is inching closer to the Spurs exit door as new contract talks stall.
This stall comes as a reported move from the FA regarding the vacant England managers job is expected next week.
Tottenham’s chairman Daniel Levy has other matters on his mind as well as the possibility of losing arguably Tottenham’s best manager in recent years and he has also stalled talks with Investec over a new sponsorship deal until the Champions League places are decided.
Is Levy losing faith in Tottenham’s ability to finish ahead of Chelsea and Newcastle? Or is he so confident in Spurs plying their trade among Europe’s elite next season he’s hoping for a more lucrative deal?
Moving back to Redknapp’s obvious difficult situation would a move to England really be a move forward for one of the Premier Leagues best ever wheeler and dealers?
If retirement in the near future is on Redknapp’s mind then maybe the England job (or the graveyard of manager’s job) would be the right move for him.
I think it would be good for the Premier League if Redknapp stayed as Spurs as he could really make Spurs a force in the next few years. Redknapp leaving – unless a big name takes over – could spell the end for Spurs title ambitions as this move could easily lead to a mass exodus of players such as Bale, Modric and V.D.Vaart which would only be bad for the competitive nature of the Premier League.
