AS says DC United are keen to sign Modric.
However, the operation will not be possible at this time, since Modric's salary demands would be too high for the MLS franchise and because the Croatian wants to see out his contract at Real Madrid, which runs until 2021.
DC United's interest in Modric has intensified following the departure of Wayne Rooney, who returned to England in August 2019 to join Championship club Derby County after 18 months with the MLS outfit.
Amid the physical issues he has had this season, the 34-year-old has still played 18 matches, providing four goals and five assists.
