Harry Redknapp has revealed he is unsure whether Luka Modric will still be at Tottenham Hotspur next season, but does not expect Gareth Bale to leave.
Modric was a target for Chelsea throughout last summer and Spurs rejected three bids from their London rivals for the Croatia international.
A new contract for the midfielder has yet to be agreed and speculation has resurfaced that the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City will bid for Modric again at the end of the season.
Team-mate Bale's future has also come in for scrutiny after the winger suggested he would hold talks with Spurs if the club failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Redknapp is confident that the Wales international, and reported Barcelona target, will not be moving on, but is less certain about the future of Modric.
"Last summer it was vital that we kept hold of Luka," Redknapp said.
"I don't think we will have to do it with people like Gareth Bale this summer.
"Luka, it's different with him. I don't know what he would do. I would be lying if I said I was sure that he would stay. You don't know.
"But certainly I wouldn't see Gareth Bale wanting to leave here.
"At the moment he is happy here, a big fish here. He is still learning the game, a young boy, and this is where he needs to be.
"You would like to think Luka would still be here, but you never know."
