Man Utd prepare £25m bid for Spurs star

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a £25million bid for Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric.

The Sun reports that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has made the 24-year-old his No 1 summer transfer target.

Fergie sees the Croatian midfielder as an ideal replacement for veteran Paul Scholes.

Modric joined Spurs from Dinamo Zagreb in 2008 in a £16.5million deal.
