From Spain: Man United keen on signing four-time Champions League winner

Toni Kroos

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly instructed Ed Woodward to try and push through a deal for Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Toni Kroos this summer.

The Germany international came with the cusp of joining United in the summer of 2014 but the move was vetoed by then-boss Louis van Gaal, who preferred to focus on other transfer targets.

Since then, Kroos has gone onto to win three Champions League crowns with Los Blancos in addition to his previous one at Bayern Munich but United could now revive their long-term interest in the 28-year-old.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Mourinho has urged Woodward to secure the German’s signature during the transfer window despite Los Blancos having little desire to part ways with the World Cup winner.

Kroos would certainly transform United’s midfield with his excellent passing attributes but the move appears highly unlikely, considering the recent signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Meanwhile, Marouane Fellaini has also ended his year-long contract standoff to agree towards an extension with United and his decision to stay may pretty much end the need for another central midfielder.

Regardless of this, United supporters can dare to dream about the prospect of Kroos playing at Old Trafford and the German would for certain increase the tempo of play in midfield, should he make a switch.
