The newspaper is reporting that Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson will pay London-based Tottenham £25million, rising to £30m based on appearances and success.

Modric, 26, will reportedly be given a four-year deal worth £26m and his wages of £125,000 a week will put him among the high earners at Old Trafford.

Ferguson signed Japanese star Shinji Kagawa this week and wants Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote and Everton left-back Leighton Baines — but refuses to match the £20m valuations on each.
