The Daily Mail says Modric smashed in a wonder goal to help the Spanish champions beat United on a controversial night of European drama in Manchester a week ago.
Now it has emerged that the 27-year-old Croatian midfielder still harbours dreams of a move back to the Barclays Premier League with United.
Still only 27, Modric is young enough to tempt United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who has been a huge admirer since he first arrived in England from Dynamo Zagreb in 2008.
