Although Luka Modric played a vital role in Real Madrid’s victory over Manchester United in their Champions League tie, the Old Trafford club are considering a move for the Croatian International.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a rescue package for the former Tottenham Hotspur man, who is thought to be receptive to the idea of a switch to Old Trafford.
The ex-Spurs star has definitely struggled to find form at the Santiago Bernabeu since making his £33million move last summer, and reports suggest that Sir Alex Ferguson could pounce on this opportunity, and renew his interest in the 27-year-old playmaker.
Luka Modric was previously linked with highly anticipated moves to Manchester United, and even saw a move to Chelsea break down after Chairman Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sell, especially to a London club who is seen as a rival.
Modric has scored just twice in a Real Madrid shirt, and was even voted by La Liga fans as the worst signing of the season in a newspaper poll, followed by Barcelona’s signing from Arsenal, Alex Song.
The previous link between Manchester United and Luka Modric during his Tottenham days can help United in their pursuit of a creative midfielder, and Modric has told friends he would be keen to cut short his stay in Spain to seal a move to the Premier League with Manchester United.
A Modric move to Manchester United would be welcomed by many fans as the search for a creative midfielder continues, the latest name Manchester United failed to capture was Brazilian starlet Lucas Moura who opted to join Paris Saint-Germain.
Manchester United cannot afford to miss out on this opportunity to land an experienced creative midfielder.
However, a move to Manchester United could be disrupted, as the Daily Mail previously reported that Real Madrid could be ready to bid £30million plus Luka Modric for Gareth Bale, a move which Tottenham Hotspur may find hard to turn down.
