Local papers report that the player would be happy to swap the Bernabeu for Old Trafford – should the two clubs agree a fee.
£30m man Luka Modric says he’d be happy to leave Real Madrid after just one season if Manchester United came for him.
Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List claims that Modric told his teammates during training that “If the clubs agree, I am ready to go to Manchester United”.
It is no secret that United are in the market for a midfielder, with former Barcelona youngster Thiago Alcantara electing to move to Bayern whilst Cesc Fabregas opted to stay put.
Manager David Moyes may have just lodged a second bid for Everton’s Marouane Fellaini, but the news of Modric’s supposed interest could change his plans.
One factor which could sabotage any potential move is the recent injury to Madrid midfield anchor Xabi Alonso.
The Spaniard damaged his fifth metatarsal earlier this week and could face up to three months out. With only Sami Khedira and new signings Asier Illaramendi and Casemiro capable of filling the two deep-lying positions in Ancelotti’s formation should Modric leave, the Italian may not be keen to sell until Alonso is fully recovered.
