Mancini interested in Modric

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has revealed his admiration for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric, although he is aware that bringing the Croatia internatioanl to the Etihad Stadium would be a difficult task.

Modric is one of the finest creative midfielders in the Premier League, and has frequently been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane - most notably to either Manchester United or Chelsea.

The latter had tried desperately to bring the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge last summer, and failed with as many as three bids to capture his signature.

Spurs are seemingly likely to have to fend of interest in Modric once again during the imminent transfer window, and Manchester City could yet join the race for his services.

The north Londoners are, of course, loath to allow him to leave, and are not in a position of financial weakness to temper any desire to do business.

Mancini is certainly aware of this fact, and realises that the signing Modric this summer may be beyond even the riches of City.

"Luka Modric is an outstanding footballer, a great player. He is definitely one of the best in the Premier League," he told his weekly press conference.

"It is by no means easy to get him because he plays for a big club, Tottenham. It is unlikely that they would let him leave."
