Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric wants to move to Manchester United after struggling to make an impact in Spain, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims United tried to sign the Croatian playmaker from Tottenham over two years ago as they looked to replace Paul Scholes but a deal failed to materialise and Modric eventually left White Hart Lane for Madrid in a £33m deal last summer.

However, his time in La Liga hasn’t gone smoothly with the 27-year-old struggling to hold down a first team place in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven and he was recently voted as the worst signing of the season by readers of Spanish paper Marca.

The former Dinamo Zagreb ace did come off the bench to smash home a stunning equaliser during Madrid’s controversial Champions League win over United last week but that was a rare highlight in what’s been a disappointing season in Spain and the Mail suggest that Modric wants to return to the Premier League and ‘has his heart set’ on a move to Old Trafford.

United signed Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund last summer but with Paul Scholes expected to retire and Darren Fletcher struggling to overcome a bowel condition, Sir Alex Ferguson could be on the look-out for another central midfielder at the end of the season and the newspaper suggests he still holds and interest in Modric.

    I can’t believ this fellow! He couldn’t get away from Spurs quick enough a year ago and now he’s doing the same with RM. If he cant make it at RM surely he wont make it at ManU?? Spoilt brat!!

      Yup, and if he can’t find success at Man U, he would try to go next big club.

      This tendency actually make him look quite loyal to Spurs.

    Modric, i said all along he was over rated and i think i have proved nearly right, i really dont know what clubs see in him, he was average at spurs and bench warming in madrid, heart set on a move to old trafford, what a turn coat after the fuss he made to get out of white hart lane, man u sign him at your peril

        if he is such quality, how come we are better off in the league this year without him, for a so called playmaker in midfield, i cant ever remember a stand out performance in a spurs shirt, a couple of good goals yes, a couple of good passes yes, thats it my friend, sold for over 30 mill and now we have dembele and holby and still have change left in our pocket
