Liverpool legend Hansen says Man Utd must do everything to prise Modric from Spurs

Liverpool legend Alan Hansen says Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson must do all he can to land Tottenham playmaker Luka Modric.

In his column for BBC Sport, Hansen wrote: "The loss of Scholes and the fact that Giggs is another year closer to the end of his career means Ferguson is almost certain to strengthen in midfield. He has been linked with Tottenham's Luka Modric and Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan, both fabulous players.

"I do not know where Modric is going, or even if he is going because Spurs chairman Daniel Levy gave Chelsea very short shrift last week, but if I was Ferguson I would break the bank to land the Croatian. He fits the bill perfectly.

"Modric is a class act and his performance when Spurs won at Liverpool on the final day of last season was as good as it gets. When the ball comes to him, he doesn't just instinctively know his three options, he knows the best one to take. He also always has time and space in abundance - the hallmark of the great player."
