Toni Kroos

The Bayern Munich star has long been coveted by Manchester United, and sources indicate that he could be enticed to Old Trafford via a lucrative financial package.

Whilst the powers that be at the Allianz Arena aren't keen to see Toni Kroos leave the club, he isn't deemed a key player within their setup, and that could count in Van Gaal's favour. The German midfielder is exactly the type of player United's midfield is crying out for, and his capture would go some way to sending out a message to the club's rivals.

Kroos has established himself as a first-team player at Bayern, and thus it will take a hefty transfer fee and a substantial wage packet to secure his services.
