Manchester United’s poor summer transfer window was well documented. Jose Mourinho failed to acquire the players he wanted. He has Edward Woodward to thank for that…
It seems as though the Red Devils Vice Chairman is keen to make amends, though. Now, according to El Confidencial, translated by The Metro, Real Madrid are considering cashing in on the world-class midfielder, Toni Kroos.
Furthermore, United are at the front of the queue to acquire the Germany international, who has recently been struggling at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Madrid are tempted into selling Kroos as he doesn’t really fit the new system that’s in place, and Los Blancos think they could command a huge transfer fee from United.
At 28, Kroos is right in the midst of his prime. There is no doubt that he’d massively improve United’s midfield. Him, in a trio alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, has serious potential.
He’s great off either foot, has a wonderful passing range, is good for a goal and could well become our on-field leader. We’re crying out for elite quality in that area of the field right now, and bringing in Kroos could potentially be huge for any title hopes we have.
