I almost fell out of my chair today when I read that Harry Redknapp said he may not spend in the January transfer window if QPR’s survival hopes look doomed. Trust me, even though Redknapp said these words, this sounds like something straight out of the mouth of QPR owner Tony Fernandes.
Not spending money in a transfer window is too logical for Redknapp. It’s so unlike Redknapp. If Fernandes and Redknapp are honest, then not spending in the January transfer window is a superb idea. The team can then rebuild next season in the Championship, cut out the dead wood and to come back to the Premier League stronger than now.
What do you think? Do you really believe that Redknapp will not spend big in January, or is QPR trying to get some bargains instead of paying through their nose for expensive players? Let us know in the comments section below.
