Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to revive his push for Tottenham ace Luka Modric. The Manchester Evening News says Ferguson will turn to Modric as he faces frustration in his pursuit of Lille star Eden Hazard.

Chelsea's surprise Champions League final win on Saturday night against Bayern Munich has cost the Croatian his dream of European Cup football next season at White Hart Lane.

Chelsea and United were keen last summer and the Londoners had a bid of around £30m rejected.

Modric stayed and helped Spurs to fourth spot, but won't relish another season without top-level European football and is said to be considering his future again.
