Real Madrid star ponders move to Manchester United

Luka Modric, Real Madrid midfielder

Manchester United‘s Champions League executioner Luka Modric is considering a summer switch to Old Trafford.

According to the Daily Mail, the Croatian midfielder is after a return to the Premier League after struggling to settle at the Bernabeu.

The 27-year-old delivered a fine display of passing against United during last week’s Champions League clash against United, scoring a stunning goal that put Real on track to victory.

However, the European tie was the first night in which Modric managed to wow Real Madrid fans, and the midfielder has been going through a difficult season with the Spanish giants since his arrival.

With manager Jose Mourinho regularly relying on Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria as attacking midfielders, the talented former Tottenham man is lacking first team football and would be keen to put his talent to the test under Sir Alex Ferguson.

United weighed up a move over Modric two summers ago, but the difficult negotiations with Tottenham over the signing of Dimitar Berbatov made the Old Trafford bosses give up on talks.

With Paul Scholes retiring at the end of the season, Ryan Giggs approaching the end of his career and rumours about a departure for Wayne Rooney in the press, Ferguson would welcome Real’s wasted talent in his squad.
