Manchester United have reportedly revived their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, according to The Independent. The German, who was reportedly close to joining the club in the summer of 2014 when Louis van Gaal was in charge, decided to head for the Bernabeu after leaving Bayern Munich, and has become an integral part of Los Blancos’ midfield.
The reported states that Real view Kroos as almost ‘unsellable’, but given United’s deep pockets, it appears as though Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward are willing to test the waters in order to bring another world class talent to their midfield.
It’s an exciting prospect, make no mistake. As valuable as Michael Carrick has often been to Mourinho this season, the manager has remarked that he wished the former England international were five years younger. The 35-year old is clearly unable to play every game for the club, which leaves them sort of world class options to support Paul Pogba and allow the Frenchman to play in his favoured position.
