Toni Kroos Is Manchester United's Number One Transfer Target This Summer

Manchester United will try and persuade Toni Kroos to move to Old Trafford this summer, four years after David Moyes almost signed him before the German midfielder opted to join Real Madrid.

Moyes shed light on the Kroos transfer back in 2016, two years after he travelled to Germany and 'agreed a deal' with the player and his agent.

As we know, Moyes targeted the likes of Bale, Fabregas and Ronaldo but he ultimately brought in the man mountain, Marouane Fellaini.

He was sacked four months later and the 28-year-old went on to win the Champions League. Classic.

Now, Jose Mourinho is determined to bring in the player as he looks to 'enhance' his midfield options, according to The Independent.

The report states that Mourinho sees Kroos as the perfect replacement for Michael Carrick, who will retire at the end of the season.

Kroos is reportedly ahead of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Wiegl in the transfer pecking order, with his range of passing a big draw for the United boss.

Mourinho himself admitted that United need a midfield player last week, before United struggled to create in midfield areas against Huddersfield.

"We need to sign a midfield player. Because we are going to lose Michael Carrick. Of course, we need balance in the team. "Some of you [the media] keep saying that we are going to buy that striker, that winger, that left winger, that right winger.

"You can accuse me of many things, but you cannot say that I lied to you. When I don't want to say things, I don't say [them]. But I don't take you in other directions. We are looking and we are going to try to sign a midfield player."

It is quite hard to believe that Kroos would have signed for United under David Moyes, but could he be tempted to play his football under Jose Mourinho? Would he really leave the Bernabeu?
