Paul Scholes believes Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos would be the perfect addition to Manchester United's squad.

Reports emerged last night that Manchester United had agreed a £20million deal to sign Toni Kroos this summer.

Bayern Munich may have no choice but to cash in on Kroos this summer as he has just one year left on his current deal at the Allianz Arena.

Manchester United have been linked with making a move for Kroos for sometime now as former Old Trafford boss David Moyes had identified the German international as the man to bolster his midfield options.

The Scotsman was fired before he could make a serious attempt to lure Kroos to the Manchester United but it now looks as if Louis van Gaal could land the 24-year-old midfielder.

And Scholes has lavished high praise on Kroos by suggesting he would be the first name on his transfer wish-list if he was the manager of Manchester United.

The former Manchester United midfielder, speaking exclusively to Paddy Power, said on the Bayern Munich star: "The first player I’d bring in is Toni Kroos.

"He’s a top-class central midfield player but United need five or six to get anywhere near the top of the Premier League again."

Manchester United are expected to land both Kroos and Southampton's Luke Shaw before the World Cup kicks off on June 12.
