It has been one of the most frustrating summers in United’s recent history, especially after failing with bids for a much-needed midfielder in Cesc Fabregas. Now we’ve turned our attention to another Spanish based midfielder; Luka Modric. United officials are in the Spanish capital to discuss a deal, according to ESPN.
A midfield signing is absolutely critical to any title aspirations we have this year, and we play Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in the opening five games so it’d be beneficial if we brought in somebody quite quickly. Luka Modric would be the perfect midfielder for United – he has the eye for a pass and doesn’t mind doing defensive work too, an all-round top player.
The 27-year old Croat found himself in and out of the Madrid team last season, but still managed 33 appearances in La Liga. He scored three goals and added six assists.
