Man Utd may have discovered a new Luka Modric

January 23, 2023

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are both interested and want to sign Rennes midfielder Lovro Majer this summer. This player is having a very good season in France. He also helped Croatia finish third in the 2022 World Cup.

The 25-year-old, operating in the typical No. 8 role and capable of rising, is a standout star in Qatar. The British press confirmed that Majer will complete a big transfer in the near future…

 Man Utd transfer target.

Accordingly, the Premier League is the most potential destination for Majer. Man Utd and Tottenham are both impressed with this player’s performance.

According to Jeunes Footeux, Erik ten Hag is interested in recruiting Majer to continue making the revolution at Old Trafford. The Dutch strategist wants to upgrade his midfield this summer.

With what has shown, Majer has been dubbed the ‘next Luka Modric’. Being compared to one of the greatest Croatian footballers of all time clearly shows his talent.

Notably, Man Utd sent a scouting team to France to watch live Majer’s performance against PSG this month. There, Majer helped the host club beat the French giant 1-0 in Ligue 1.

Since joining Rennes from Dinamo Zagreb in 2021, Majer has scored eight goals and added 12 assists in 60 appearances. Therefore, Rennes boldly bid Majer up to £ 50 million.

In fact, according to SciSports, Majer was the best central midfielder in Ligue 1 last season. Majer’s ability to regulate and control the game has helped Rennes become the most worth-watching team in Ligue 1 in recent times.

Majer was named the new Modric of Croatian football.

The Red Devils need someone to bring competition to Bruno Fernandes, while Donny van de Beek’s future at Old Trafford becomes uncertain. The Dutch midfielder has just suffered a serious injury and is out of action for the rest of the season.

In the summer of 2022, Van de Beek can leave England to rebuild his career. At that time, the presence of  Majer was very necessary when the Red Devils’ force was still quite thin, it was difficult to compete in many arenas.

Earlier in the season, Man Utd signed Christian Eriksen on a free transfer and completed a deal worth nearly 70 million pounds for Casemiro.

Both of these players contribute to helping Man Utd play better. However, Coach Ten Hag has reason to want more reinforcements.

A transfer in January 2023 is unlikely, but Man Utd is determined to sign Majer in the summer. After the 2022/23 season, the Red Devils will change owners. At that time, Man Utd is likely to be given money to add strong
