Manchester United are no longer the European giants they used to be, as they have been underperforming in the UEFA Champions League for some seasons now. In the English Premier League as well, their trophy drought has started worrying the fans. 

One of the main reasons (apart from managerial concerns) has been the lack of impactful players in the team. Earlier, at least 1 or 2 players would represent the Red Devils in the best players list of a particular year. Recently, United players have not impressed, and have been disappointing. 

The UEFA Team of the Year 2018 has been released, and has yet again seen the absence of a Manchester United player. It is high time the team management makes a few quality signings in the future, and a positive step towards that could be targeting a few in the recent released UEFA TOTY 2018. 

#3 Luka Modric

Luka Modric has had a fantastic 2018 with the UEFA Champions League trophy and the runners up medal in the FIFA World Cup. He has also swept all the individual awards as well, including the Ballon d'Or. 

However, the Croatian captain has not been in the best of form with Real Madrid in the past few games. Real Madrid has also lost a few games, which has had them lagging behind arch-rivals Barcelona. 

There has also been talk of a move away from Real Madrid for Luka Modric, with Inter Milan being the top suitor. 

Manchester United has lacked a creative midfielder, which has affected their goal scoring in recent times. No player has had an impact on the team like Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs in the past. Hence, Modric would be a perfect fit at Manchester United. 

His calm presence and creative abilities can aid the Old Trafford club, helping them score more goals. In addition to that, Modric and Pogba could form a formidable midfield partnership, which could attract many sponsors to the club.
