Man City encouraged to bid for Real Madrid playmaker Modric

Manchester City are eyeing Real Madrid star Luka Modric. The Daily Star Sunday says top Premier League clubs have been made aware that the Real Madrid playmaker, 29, could be surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu come June.

The Spanish giants, as ever, are planning another Galactico signing in the close season - with Juventus' French midfielder Paul Pogba top of their shopping list.

Should the one-time Manchester United prodigy arrive in a deal likely to be worth at least £80million it would put Modric's future in serious doubt.

For, in order to balance the books under Financial Fair Play, Real will be forced to off-load some of their other stars.

And that will be the signal for City, who are set to overhaul Manuel Pelligrini's squad, to launch a £25m offer for the ex-Tottenham man.
