Toni Kroos has angered Manchester United fans by revealing that his decision to join Real Madrid in the summer instead of making a move to Old Trafford was the right choice.
David Moyes tried to land the 24-year-old during last season's embarrassing campaign, but Carlo Ancelotti spotted the clear talents of the German midfielder during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and was quickest to act in landing Kroos for £24 million.
It was a deal that definitely paid off for the Spanish giants as the former Bayern Munich star has brought his innovative and creative talents over from the Bundesliga champions.
Madrid continue to enjoy tremendous success
The Champions League winners lifted yet another trophy on Saturday night after coming out on top in the Club World Cup, with a dominant 2-0 victory against San Lorenzo.

"Before coming here, I didn't know what to expect, but I made the decision. I was looking for something new and I was lucky that I signed for Real Madrid."
