Manchester United legend Gary Pallister says his club need to buy Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Luka Modric if they want to catch Barcelona.

The White Hart Lane playmaker has been the subject of a £22million bid from Chelsea, which was rejected, and Manchester City are also rumoured to be preparing a bid.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp insists none of his stars are up for sale as he tries to get his side back into the Champions League.

But Pallister beleives the Croatia international could help United overturn the Champions League final defeat to Barcelona and make the Red Devils the best team in Europe.

“With the loss of Scholes, you are looking for a playmaker and I think Luka Modric ticks all the right boxes,” he said to Caughtoffside. “He has been an absolute star for Tottenham.

“He gives the team an imagination. When you look at the likes of Barcelona in the Champions League maybe that is the way forward and having Modric in the team will add to Manchester United.”
