Former Manchester United midfielder Lou Macari has said that the club should look into the possibility of signing Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric, who is thought to be unhappy at the Spanish club.
The Croatian arrived at the Santiago Bernebeu in the summer for around £ 35 million, but he has largely been a substitute at the club due to his failure to settle in Spanish football. Modric has been utilised in the less important matches by manager José Mourinho. As a result, he is thought to be unhappy with life in Spain and is willing to look at other options.
Manchester United were credited with enormous interest in Modric by the man utd news site before he moved to Real Madrid. Sir Alex Ferguson were unable to agree a transfer fee with Tottenham. Even though he has failed to live up to the expectations, Macari still thinks that Modric is one of the best midfielders in the world. Due to the retirement of Paul Scholes, United will be having one of their weakest midfielders for several years. Macari thinks that the arrival of Modric could strengthen the United team even further, as they will be preparing for the defence of their league title next season.
The club recently managed to win its 20th league title.
“One name that keeps cropping up is Luka Modric. If they did sign someone like him I’m not sure where they can go wrong. He’s proved that he can do it in the Premier League. He knows what football in this country is about so you don’t need to worry about some of the things you need to think about with other players coming in from abroad. It seems a real possibility that he could join Manchester United,” said Macari in a recent interview. Modric has made just 28 appearances this season.
