Man Utd plan move for Spurs star

Manchester United are reportedly planning to make a 50million bid for Tottenham star Luka Modric.

The Croatian midfielder has emerged as United's No 1 transfer target for the summer.

The Sunday Mail reports that United will have to make a 50million bid to prise him away from White Hart Lane.

United see Modric as a long-term replacement for Paul Scholes, who just recently was brought out of retirement due to the injury problems at Old Trafford.

Spurs turned down a 40million bid for Modric made by Chelsea last summer.

Modric's current contract with Spurs is set to expire in the summer of 2016.
