Manchester United eye Modric move
Tuesday 25 August 2009
Manchester United are lining up their second transfer deadline raid on Tottenham in 12 months with Luka Modric topping the Old Trafford wish-list.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who swooped for Dimitar Berbatov a year ago, is reportedly willing to offer £10m plus former Spurs midfielder Michael Carrick to land the Croatia midfielder.
Modric has made a stunning start to the season for Harry Redknapp’s table-toppers.
But the White Hart Lane boss would be loathe to let one of his star players leave the club at a time when they have made a superb start to the new season.
Modric has sparkled in the Spurs midfield after a nervous start to his Premier League career and United are ready to make their move.
Should the champions fail in their bid to prize Modric to the Theatre of Dreams, it is understood that they could turn their attentions to Aston Villa and England star Ashley Young.
