Man Utd boss Ferguson sees Tottenham's Modric as playmaker solution
The Manchester Evening News says a proven playmaker and an up-and-coming talent would freshen up United's midfield.
Modric has been pacified since his dalliance with Chelsea last summer by Spurs' impressive campaign.
But Harry Redknapp's team have gone off the boil and the Croatian could decide they've hit the top of their heights. At 26, Modric would be a perfect fit.
