David Moyes Turns to Luka Modric as Manchester United’s Search For a Star Widens: Nightly Soccer Report

luka modric David Moyes Turns to Luka Modric as Manchester United’s Search For a Star Widens: Nightly Soccer Report

The Times newspaper is reporting tonight that Manchester United have turned their attention away from trying to sign Cesc Fabregas, and are now pursuing Real Madrid’s Luka Modric.

United are planning a £25million bid for the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder.

What do you think? Is it a bogus transfer story fabricated by the British newspaper, or is there a grain of truth to this one? Modric would certainly fit in well at United if given the opportunity. Have your say in the comments section below.

    This transfer season gets wackier and wackier.

  2. dust says:

    LOL….And i’m sure rat boy will be on the phone to Bale…its great come with me to Man Utd…So Man Utd turned down by Cesc.

    Now they need the player voted biggest flop signing by spanish fans and media for last year…c’mon Man Utd…has the demise already started? we haven’t even had the first game yet…Rat Boy..WOW

    This all shows how great a manager David Moyes is. Nearing the end of pre season and we still havent made any significant squad improvements. This guy is a damn joke. This isnt Fifa but not even one midfielder David?? We have Kondogbia sitting at Sevilla waiting for someone to pick him up. Lots of quality out there Moyes Real and Barca dont have all the best players even if that Fifa World XI indicates that

    • Frill Artist says:

      Wow. Season hasn’t started and you’re already bashing him. Give him his due process.

    • Marc L says:

      Yeah, good grief. Have you followed the sport only since Kagawa played for the rags or something? Moyes is an excellent manager and should be given a fair chance to show what he can do before being slammed like that.

  4. CTBlues says:

    CONCACAF and COMEBOL need to come to some sort of common ground and form a true Copa America with the 10 COMEBOL members and 6 members from CONCACAF and if more teams can improve in quality they can increase the number of CONCACAF teams.

  5. Dust says:

    Bale mum and dad are involved? And they want him to stay at spurs but it’s his agent Jonathan Barnett that has been telling Real to keep applying pressure?

    That’s a lot of drama jeez….£120m cash and I’m sure levy will take it.

    • Mufc77 says:

      If bale needs to get his mummy and daddy to hold his hand then he’s not cut out to live in another country and play for one of the worlds biggest clubs.

      I’ve said before on here I like bale but he’s not worth that kind of silly money but if your spurs you would be foolish to turn it down. I still reckon he will get found out in la liga and he will be back in the EPL in 3/4 years time.

  6. rkujay says:

    Mr.Moyes’s actions, or rather lack of, remind me of Roy Hogson, then Liverpool manager, saying how he really wanted to sign Luke Moore.
    If you aim for the sky Mr. Moyes, you might fall on your face. If you aim for the stars, you still might find the heavens.

    Get rid of the mid table mentality please and do something.

    • goatslookshifty says:

      Easy there, Casey Kasem. Moyesy is still assessing his players and sorting out the Rooney dilemma. Man Utd has always been about the team dynamic and not the big name signing, except RVP last year. Not sure how you see his interest in Cesc or Modric as mid table mentality signings.
