PSG ready to outbid United for Modric

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint Germain have become a major rival to Manchester United in the race to sign Spurs midfielder Luka Modric.

The big spending Ligue 1 side are desperate to land the White Hart Lane playmaker and are ready to dwarf any Old Trafford bid by offering in excess of £30million, according to The Mirror.

The report claims Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is getting more frustrated by Spurs’ stance after chairman Daniel Levy turned down a £22million bid from United.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti has now set his sights on the Croatia international, but the report claims Modric is more interested in move to Old Trafford than the French capital.

Levy rejected an offer from Chelsea for the 26-year-old last summer and is expected to fight just as hard to hold onto him this summer, though it may be difficult to persuade him to stay another year without champiosn league football.

PSG interest in Modric, who is currently at Euro 2012 with his national team, could make things difficult for Ferguson and Spurs will be keen to use interest from both parties to drive the price up.
