BBC Sport Transfer gossip column has reported Manchester United are willing to exchange one of three players plus cash to entice Harry Redknapp in to selling Luka Modric.
Considering Luka Modric has recently signed a contract extension with Tottenham Hotspur, this transfer is an absolute no go in my opinion (regardless of money). Has there been a player signing a new contract then immediately move to another club? Perhaps a handful of players but the situation is surely rare? Modric will not be leaving Spurs this summer.
According to the poll run on Stretford End Arising, Modric seems a popular choice amongst the midfield options to add spark in attack. I had my doubts surrounding due to his size (coping with physical demands of Premier League football) but was impressed with his performance levels during the tough end Spurs had to their league campaign. However, I will be very surprised if Modric is a United player this summer, if at all. If wrong I will hold my hands up.
What do you think?
Will Modric become a Man United player this summer? If not Modric, which player should Sir Alex Ferguson sign to add creativity? Do United require a creative midfielder?
