Forget about Euro 2012, the Sun splashes an headline suggesting that United are about to add another piece to their midfield jigsaw by signing Spurs playmaker Luka Modric for £26 million.
The Daily Mail’s story follows the same line, reporting that Modric, who had a request to leave White Hart Lane turned down last summer, will be just one of the many stars to leave North London and, despite interest from Chelsea the paper is adamant that Sir Alex will finally get one of his long term targets and Modric will sign a deal worth £125.000 a week upon return from Poland where he’s on duty with Croatia.
The 18-year-old striker has scored 8 goals in 10 games with Universidad de Chile, excelling for Chile’s age-group sides and in his homeland has drawn comparisons with Ruud Van Nistelrooy.
The Mirror suggests that United beat a host of clubs from around the world to sign the young striker who might be farmed out on-loan until he wins his first senior cap, unless United manage to obtain a “special talent visa” approved.
Finally, France coach Laurent Blanc is the latest to give his opinion about the Rio Ferdinand saga as he tells the Guardian that he doesn’t believe the Manchster United defender was left out of the England squad for football reasons.
