Old Trafford boss willing to offer former White Hart Lane pair in return for Tottenham duo.
Manchester United is set to make an improved offer to try to tempt Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric and wide man Gareth Bale to Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson has shown a very keen interest in the two in form White Hart Lane men and it appears that the Old Trafford boss is hoping that the offer of a player swap may more appeal to Harry Redknapp than cold hard cash.
Both Modric and Bale have been outstanding this season with the Welsh international especially impressive over the past two months and its no surprise that interest has grown in both players but whether Redknapp would sanction any such deal is debatable.
Ferguson is reportedly ready to offer the likes of Michael Carrick, Anderson and even former Spurs man Dimitar Berbatov in exchange for two of Redknapp’s prized assets. Manchester United are of course in severe financial dire straits at present but the Glazers have stated that funds will be available to Sir Alex to invest in his playing squad.
Manchester United shelled out over £50m for Carrick and Berbatov but it seems that Ferguson has in some respect lost faith in both and could offer Redknapp the former Tottenham pair in an attempt to seal the deal.
Given that the north London side have just secured a first Champions League spot it could prove very hard to snap up either of these talented players but one can never underestimate the allure associated with a move to arguably the biggest football club in the world.
