Manchester United battle Spurs for Croatian starlet

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur target Alen Halilovic, according to reports.

The Daily Star claims Red Devils boss David Moyes is keeping tabs on the talented Croatian, and could launch a surprise bid to bring the player to Old Trafford.

The Scot has so far struggled in his efforts to strengthen the Manchester United squad since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson, with players like Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas unable to be lured to the Premier League champions.

And, whilst Halilovic might well be more of a signing for the future, his arrival at United would suggest that the club still have pulling power in the transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur were at the front of the queue to land the player, the Star claims, but Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti reports that Halilovic's father put the buffers on a £12million move for his son to White Hart Lane.

Andre Villas-Boas is still keen on the youngster however, with the Spurs boss eager to add the talented teen to his ranks in north London in the final weeks of the summer transfer window.

Halilovic has been dubbed 'the next Luka Modric' in the past, and Tottenham Hotspur would love to have a player of that ilk back in their first team.
