Although a deal forgiven seems to be a bridge to far, “We wouldn't get Shay Given from Man City, they don't seem to want to deal with us," Redknapp said. "We have tried before to get their players. I tried to sign Craig Bellamy but they wouldn't let him come here.
“Scott’s a top player, Footballer of the Year. I’m sure people are going to be interested in Scott.
“I know a couple of other clubs are interested, big clubs, but we will wait and see.”
Hazard and Given would be two fine signings, I've no doubt. Parker was a player we could've done pre-Sandro era and with a midfield partnership of Luka and the Brazilian I'd struggle to see where he'd fit in, unless if he's happy to keep the bench warm and is strictly a back-up.
The Drogba rumours also seem to be gaining some heat so it wouldn't be a surprise if we tried an audacious move for the forward.
