Second Time Lucky?

Second Time Lucky?

Rumours are rife that all is not well with regards to Luka Modric and life at Real Madrid.

Reports suggest that the Croatian playmaker has struggled to adapt to life in Spain, recently being voted the worst signing of 2012.

Therefore, it`s no surprise that sources close to the player are reporting that he would be more than interested in a move back to the Premier League.

With Real Madrid having shelled out circa £33 million when they purchased him, it`d be interesting to see just how much would be required to bring him back to the Premier League.

Could it be second time lucky for Manchester United when it comes to Luka Modric?

Real Madrid killing another players career? Never! I doubt Madrid would admit to making a mistake so soon and if Modric were to give up so soon then he certainly doesn't have the mentality of a united player. However, if he doesn't start putting in performances he risks going the way of Sneijder, Robben, Kaka and co and wasting years of what is a short career anyway on the bench not playing when a player of his ability should be showcasing it weekly. As for him coming to us, I can't see it happening. Same sort of player as Carrick and when Carrick was out of form we were crying out for a player like him but now Carrick is back in the best form of his united career adding Modric to the squad would be excessive and not needed. If we really need a player of the world-class Modric ilk I'd sooner see us go for Sneijder. However I highly doubt that one will happen either, his wage demands are too ridiculous despite his very modest transfer fee. The only additions the midfield really needs is a Strootman or Wanyama as well as perhaps a bit of a clear out. As to who to clear out that's a difficult question.

Sod Modric there's only one Real player we want. Can't see us ever getting him back though.

Then again if Kevin Prince Boateng becomes available I wouldn't mind seeing him at the club. Fits the bill as a fergie type of player, hard working and gets up and down the field, fast, skilful and strong. Not a bad shot from range on him either. Bet Tottenham are kicking themselves for letting him go, his come on a long way as a footballer since leaving them.
