Agent: Modric not United-bound

The Croatian star has been strongly linked with a move to United as

the Premier League champions seek a replacement for Paul Scholes.

But Modric’s advisor, Mario Mamic, doubts that the ex-Dinamo Zagreb

player will move to Old Trafford. The 25-year-old is under contract

until 2016 so not matter what United offer, Mamic reckons the Spurs

board will be unwilling to sell. “Luka will not go to Manchester

United and he will also stay at Tottenham because I know that

president Daniel Levy will not let him go,” he told Croatian

newspaper Jutarnji List. Mamic’s father Zdravko is vice-president

at Dinamo and believes United may have to top the club-record

£30.75million they paid for Dimitar Berbatov in order to land

Modric. “I heard that somebody has offered £20m pounds for

Luka but that’s crazy,” he added. “When we talk about Modric, that

price would only be enough to buy peanuts.”
