Player Report: What Could ‘Next Luka Modric’ Offer Manchester United?

When people start suggesting targets for Manchester United’s midfield there is one man who is often near the top of the list – Luka Modric. However, the Metro are reporting that David Moyes is looking to snap up the starlet who has been labelled the next Modric – Karol Linetty. But who is he, and what can he offer United should they acquire his services?

Watching the video that I have selected below it gives you a good idea as to why he has been likened to the former Tottenham midfielder. He has the energy in the middle when pressing opponents for the ball and an outstanding technique in his passing.

He is comfortable with the ball at his feet and has the ability to drive forward or spray a ball out to his attacking team-mates.

Another huge asset of the Lech Poznan player is his range of shooting. The 18-year-old often patrols the areas behind the striker and creates pockets of space before unleashing his rocket shot, often forcing the keeper into action.

He holds all the attributes to qualify him as what the United midriff needs. Not only does he chip in with the dog work, but he can link the midfield to the attack with ease and ultimately spark attacks within seconds of receiving the ball.

Will Moyes get his man?
