Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has given an insight into Man City’s transfer-market tactics.

“They blow you out of the water,” said Redknapp. “We tried to sign Bellamy and, at the time, we were after Wilson Palacios as well.

“They said: ‘If you don’t drop out of Bellamy, we’re going to sign Palacios. We’re interested in Palacios. But if you pull out of Bellamy, we’ll pull out of Palacios and then we both get a player.’

“They wanted Bellamy badly. It was when Mark Hughes was there, and obviously he was close to Bellamy, The Welsh connection. They were desperate for Bellamy. We were having a bidding war on Bellamy over the fee.

“So we had no choice really. They just said ‘We’ll blow you out of the water’. They’ve got the backing, they’ve got the clout to do that, they can do it if they want somebody.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. We've got to get behind Platini and his plans to curb spending.

    It's already ridiculous the way Real Madrid, Man U, Liverpool and Chelsea operate. Our clubs shouldn't be the playthings of billionaires.

    Why can't they play in their own sandpit!!!

    Really, who's going to be interested in football if only the richest teams win?

    Come on Spurs, boot these pretenders back to where they belong!!!
