Manchester United continue Modric pursuit

Manchester United want to complete the signing of Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric before the European Championships this summer, it has been claimed.

The 26-year-old almost left White Hart Lane for Chelsea last summer, but was convinced to stay in north London for another season at least.

However, the reported interest of Manchester United in his signature may lead Modric to consider his future with Spurs - particularly if Harry Redknapp leaves the club to take the England job.

According to the Daily Star, Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to bring Modric to Old Trafford, and hopes to capture his signature before he represents Croatia at Euro 2012.

Spurs, naturally, have no intention of selling Modric, and chairman Daniel Levy will do all he can to convince the midfield star to sign a new contract.

But United will surely be confident they can tempt Modric to move to Manchester, although they will have more difficulty in persuading Levy to let him go.

“United are favourites now," a source told the Daily Star.

“Daniel Levy managed to persuade Luka to remain at the club last summer and now he has to do it all again.

“The uncertainty over Harry doesn’t help the Spurs cause, really. If he goes to England they will have less bargaining power.”
