Pellegrini keen on signing Modric


LUKA-MODRICLONDON, England, February 18- Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric is reportedly on the radar of Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini who has expressed an interest in bringing the Croatia international back to England.

Modric made the move to the Spanish giants from Tottenham in 2012 and has made 56 appearances and scored four goals during his time with the club.

Prior to joining Madrid, Modric earned much praise for his performances for Spurs.

An inside source at the Citizens has disclosed that Pellegrini may make a move for Modric in the summer, but stated that the Sky Blues boss is well aware that a transfer deal will be difficult to engineer.

“Real Madrid are perhaps unlikely to sell him after the form he’s been in,” a source close to the club said.

“But City always look out for the best players and Modric is one that would be a great addition. We’ll see, I’m sure the club will do what they can.”

Manchester United and Chelsea showed interest in Modric last summer when he was struggling to settle at Madrid, but his recent form has seen him become an integral part of the Los Blancos team.
