Manchester United will lure Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric in the summer and Sir Alex Ferguson believes he will win the race for the Croat who he believes will help give his Old Trafford side the added creativity in his midfield which he believes is lacking.
Harry Redknapp will fight tooth and nail to keep the 25 year old at White Hart Lane but even if the north London side manages to cement another top four finish the former Dinamo Zagreb man will find it hard to resist the temptation of joining a side who can fight for significant silverware.
It would take a bid in the region of £30m to land the pint sized adaptable midfielder and Ferguson is thought to have placed Modric at the head of his summer wish-list and may also be willing to offer a Man United player as part of any deal to land the Spurs man. The likes of experienced campaigners Wes Brown, Michael Carrick or youngsters Anderson, Darron Gibson and Tom Cleverley could be offered to sweeten the deal.
Whilst Tottenham’s progress under Harry Redknapp has been nothing short of astounding Ferguson will still feel that the gravitas of a move to arguably one of the biggest clubs on the planet will be too much of a pull for the Croatian international to ignore.
Now in his third season since moving to White Hart Lane for £16.5m , Modric has been a phenomenal success and is now thought to be wanted by a number of Europe’s elite and Redknapp will find it hard to fend off interest in his services next summer.
