LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Manchester United are set to beat the rivals and sign Tottenham’s star Luka Modric, reports in the British media are claiming.
The Sun is reporting that Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has offered Spurs £25 million for Modric – a fee the report claims will increase to £30m – based on his “appearances and success.”
Tottenham was able to hold off the constant requests from Champions League winners Chelsea last year, but it is believed the interest from United could pave the way for the midfielder to move from White Hart Lane this summer.
Anyway, neither clubs have commented on the reports, but there are suggestions that Modric wants to leave and would certainly look for the doors if Redknapp departs.
Manchester United have only recently confirmed that a deal has been struck to land Japanese star Shinji Kagawa from German Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund.
