'Itís all about wages' - Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp unhappy about missing out on potential Chelse
Harry Redknapp insists that Tottenham missed out on Juan Mata because they were unable to compete with the wages offered by Chelsea.
Spurs had been linked with a move for the Valencia winger this summer, but the Spanish club have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Chelsea over a move for the player.
Now the Tottenham boss claims that Mata's decision to move to Stamford Bridge is 'all about wages'.
'We were in for Mata and close to doing a deal. But he didnít come and Chelsea came in,' Redknapp said, according to the Daily Mail.
'Obviously they can blow you out of the water wage wise, and then he changes his mind and they get him. Itís all about wages.'
