    Oh dear let's hope this isn't the future . . . . .

    White Hart Lane boss hopes to do business with his old friend from Old Trafford.

    Harry Redknapp is reportedly keen on bringing in two experienced Man United campaigners in January to help in his pursuit of re-claiming a spot in the top four and a seat back at the Champions League top table.

    The White Hart Lane boss has been singing the praises of Old Trafford centre back Rio Ferdinand for a few weeks now and as his former West Ham charge comes under some serious criticism, Redknapp would like to offer the 32 year old the chance of a move back down to London and a better chance of securing regular first team football.

    The England international was dropped for Man United’s trip to Goodison Park after a horrendous display in the 6-1 mauling by Man City and he watched on as Jonny Evans and Nemanja Vidic kept a clean sheet. A way back into the Premier League champions’ first team may prove problematic given that youngsters Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have both impressed this season, albeit the latter playing more frequently at right back.

    The Tottenham boss is also keen on striker Michael Owen who has signed a one year deal in the summer hoping to have a shot at breaking into Ferguson’s plans but has thus far managed just one Premier League sub appearance.

    Redknapp lost two of his international strike quartet in the summer, with Peter Crouch and Robbie Keane leaving the club, he then struggled to bring in suitable replacements but did manage to nab Emmanuel Adebayor on loan from Man City but could still do with more options up front, not least because Russian Roman Pavlyuchenko is unhappy at his continued lack of opportunities at the club.

    It is thought that Harry Redknapp will make a combined offer of around £10m for the pair and will hope that his good relationship with Sir Alex may help in getting a deal done in January.

    Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has not handed Redknapp a huge cash pot for new additions but is fully aware of just how important it is for the club to once again book a place back in the Champions League, especially after last season’s run to the Quarter Finals, and is therefore willing to offer funds to bring in players who can add top level experience to the North London club’s squad.

    Given that both players named will be out of contract in the summer such an offer may be deemed a good one that is worth considering.

    Just bollox I reckon Vis. Even Arry wouldn't be that stupid to sign Ferdinand...........Well, maybe Ferdinand but surely not that old crock Owen.

    I think "hope" its not true, saying that though we do need a world class CB so we can remain a World Class Squad
