According to a few latest transfer rumours, Real Madrid midfielder and German International Toni Kroos is apparently under the radar of Premier League giants Manchester United, as The Red Devils look to secure the services of the 28-year-old with the Michael Carrick set to retire from the game.
Also, as per latest reports, it looks like Manchester United have now been backed to sign a new midfielder at the end of the season with Marouane Fellaini likely to exit the club by the end of the season.
United manager Jose Mourinho, has apparently stated that he wants to strengthen his midfield and add more depth to it by adding the likes of former Bayern midfielder Toni Kroos, who in recent times has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford. Meanwhile, several reports have also suggested that United are willing to try and negotiate the right price for the German international.
Additionally, The Independent has also claimed that Mourinho seemingly wants to partner up Kroos alongside two of his current midfielders Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic. However, ESPN’s Steve Nicol believes that United are completely wasting their time pursuing the German midfielder as the former Liverpool FC midfielder thinks that Kroos isn’t leaving Real Madrid anytime soon.
On the other hand, United are also looking to bring in the services of Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl and there has been a lot of talks of the 22-year-old youngster signing for The Red Devils in the near future. But, as per reports from The Mirror, Dortmund are currently not willing to listen to offers below £40m.
Mourinho, however, could face some competition from his city rivals, that is, Manchester City, who are also apparently interested in bringing in Weigl, following the latest concerns over Yaya Toure’s future with the Sky Blues, as per claimed by The Sun.
