Manchester United are set to beat Chelsea to Spurs playmaker Luka Modric, once the Croatia international returns from Euro 2012.
Sir Alex Ferguson hopes to land his man for £25million, with an additional £5m based on appearances and future success with United, according to the Sun.
Modric is in line for a bumper four-year contract worth £125,000-a-week, and £26m in all.
The 26-year-old midfielder is preparing for Euro 2012 with the Croatia squad but will sort his future once his tournament is over.
Tottenham had to fight to keep Midric out of Chelsea's clutches last year. But with Harry Redknapp's side narrowly missing out on Champions League football next season, the club look likely to lose several big stars this summer
