Chelsea & Man Utd To Reignite Interest As Modric Eyes Prem Return
Chelsea and Man Utd are set to reignite their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric this summer with the Croatian keen on a move back to the Premiership
Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Manchester United and Chelsea are linked with Luka Modric.
Chelsea and Manchester United are set to reignite their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric this summer with the Croatian understood to be keen on a move back to the Premier League, according to the Mirror.
The report claims both Chelsea and United tried to sign the 27-year-old last summer before he eventually sealed a £33m move from Tottenham to Madrid.
Modric’s time in La Liga hasn’t quiet gone according to plan though as he’s struggled to hold down a first team place in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven and was recently voted as the worst signing of the season by readers of Spanish paper Marca.
The playmaker did come off the bench to score a superb goal during Real’s controversial 3-2 aggregate win over United in the Champions League last week, but that was a rare highlight in whats been a frustrating campaign so far with the player struggling to recreate his form at Tottenham that earned him a big-money money to the Bernabeu.
The Mirror claims Modric has told close friends that he wants a move back to the Premier League this summer and Sir Alex Ferguson is understood to be confident of seeing off Chelsea’s interest by luring the Croatian schemer to Old Trafford if Madrid agree to cut their loses.
