Manchester United are reportedly planning a double summer swoop as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to lure Tottenham pair Gareth Bale and Luka Modric to Old Trafford according to the Daily Mail. Harry Redknapp has already issued a public hands off warning to any prospective suitors but this will not stop the Premier League table toppers from putting in a combined bid for the pair who are valued at around £80m.

Ferguson is looking to freshen things up at Man United and has earmarked moves for top talent across Europe as he looks to clear out some dead wood and look to strengthen his side this summer. Redknapp is sure to fight off interest in any of his top talent but if the North London club fail to secure a top four finish then either player may be tempted by a move to a club who can challenge for major honours.

Welsh youngster Gareth Bale has been having a marvellous season but is currently sidelined with a back injury whilst Luka Modric has been a huge success at Tottenham ever since his move to the club from Dynamo Zagreb in the summer of 2008.

Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly ready to offload some of his under performing squad when the season comes to an end and the likes of Owen Hargreaves, Darron Gibson and Jonny Evans have been linked with moves away from the club whilst Michael Owen is unlikely to be offered a new contract when his current deal runs out in a few months time.
