Manchester United officials are reportedly in Madrid to discuss a potential move for Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.

According to the ESPN, Manchester United officials have reached Spain to open talks with Modric, luring him from the La Liga runner-ups before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

David Moyes is pushing forward to make the former-Tottenham star his first marquee signing for the Premier League champions.

Manchester United have already failed to land top midfield targets - Barcelona duo Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas.

Despite interest from the Red Devils, Alcantara decided to reunite with former Catalan boss Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich, while Fabregas claimed he will fight for his postion - by putting stay at Barcelona.

However, Moyes remains confident of signing Modric, who has had limited opportunities at the Spanish capital.

Reports emerged last week that the former Everton boss is considering bid for the 27-year-old Croatian and Real Madrid will demand at least £25 million from the interested parties.

The deal will unlikely be completed before the start of the season, but Modric could prove to be fascinating signing for Manchester United and will provide a tough competition to other midfielders at the club.
