Luka Modric has once again emerged as the major target for Manchester United in this January’s transfer window, according to The
The Spurs midfielder was the subject of three bids from Chelsea in the summer, but the North London club stated they would not sell. Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to strengthen his midfield and bring the creative player the club have been missing. Modric is valued at up to £50m and that fee would have to be met if any side wanted to make a move for the Croatian.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a difficult person to negotiate with over Modric, as the three summer bids from Chelsea show. United are not worried about concluding the deal and believe that signing Modric would be a statement of intent to their club rivals. With Tom Cleverley and Darren Fletcher out of the side, and Anderson only just returning from a knee problem, Sir Alex Ferguson is short of central midfield options.
It is probable that Spurs will want to wait until the summer before selling, but United will open preliminary negotations in the coming weeks. Recent headlines have stated Wayne Rooney as looking to leave Old Trafford and the signing of Modric should convince the England international that United are still going places.
