The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Man Utd are linked with Toni Kroos….
Jose Mourinho has given the green light to a £70m bid for Toni Kroos as Manchester United look to seal a stunning deal for the Real Madrid midfielder, according to reports in Spain via TeamTalk.
Mourinho is looking to strengthen his midfield options this summer as he tries to build a squad capable of challenging Manchester City for the title next season after finish 19 points adrift of their rivals last year and the Portuguese coach has already signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.
However, Michael Carrick has moved in to a coaching role after retiring and Marouane Fellaini is set to leave the club on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the month so Mourinho is in the market for a second midfielder and it seems Kroos has emerged as a potential target.
Back in April, TeamTalk reported that United had identified Kroos as a key summer signing and were prepared to offer the German international a bumper contract worth £350,000-a-week if he made a move to Old Trafford.
It looks like United are now ready to formalise their interest in the Real Madrid star as TeamTalk are now citing a report from Don Balon that claims Mourinho has given the go-ahead to a £70m bid.
Kroos has been one of the best midfielders in world football over the past five years and he’s helped Madrid win 3 Champions League’s a 1 La Liga title since joining the club from Bayern Munich in 2014.
The 28-year-old is also an integral part of the German national team and scored a stunning injury-time winner for Die Mannschaft to secure a vital 2-1 victory over Sweden in their World Cup group game on Saturday night.
Obviously it would be a sensational deal if United could pull it off, however, Madrid are under no pressure to sell as Kroos still has four years left on his contract at the Bernabeu so the Manchester giants may have to dig a little deeper if they want to get a deal agreed.
