Manchester United want Modric

Manchester United are set to revive their interest in Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric, according to reports.

The Daily Star claims David Moyes is hoping to persuade the Croatian international to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, despite the 27-year-old being in new manager Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.

Manchester United’s interest stems from their stuttering pursuit of Thiago Alcantara, with the paper reporting that the Spaniard has snubbed the chance to move to Old Trafford in favour of Bayern Munich.

The Red Devils were linked with a move for Modric back in May, with the Sunday People claiming Moyes had made ‘discreet enquiries’ about the £24million-rated player after replacing Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Premier League champions’ interest appeared to wane last month, but with the season now just a month away, Manchester United are back in for the player.

Modric moved to Real Madrid last summer, with the La Liga giants spending big to bring the player to the club from Tottenham Hotspur.

He featured 53 times in all competitions for Los Blancos under Jose Mourinho, and will hope to be a regular wherever he starts the campaign next term.
