As of yet, the Scot has failed to make a marquee signing since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, and has been thwarted in his attempts to secure a number of big name players – including Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas.
Now, he is ready to turn his attention to Modric and Ozil, and is confident of securing a deal for at least one of the pair before the transfer window slams shut.
Moyes has highlighted a creative midfielder as his top priority, as he looks to impose his own style of play on his inherited United squad.
It is believed that Modric is the the most likely target for the Red Devils, with the Croatian having endured a tough time in Spain since his move from Tottenham.
With a wealth of central midfielders – including new arrivals Asier Illarramendi and Isco – Real have plenty of options, which may see the playmaker’s chances of breaking into the starting XI limited.
United are also keen on Ozil, and it is understood that the club have been in contact with the German’s representatives since June.
Although he is valued highly, the La Liga giants may opt to sell for the right price to raise funds ahead of a last gasp move for Gareth Bale.
Who would be a better fit at Manchester United, Luka Modric or Mesut Ozil?
