Manchester United to renew interest in Toni Kroos in the summer

Whilst it’s still uncertain as to who will be Manchester United manager next season, the club have already began eyeing up summer transfer targets.

According to The Mirror, top of their shortlist is Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos but his arrival will depend on whether current boss Louis van Gaal is still in charge.

Kroos has been a target for the Red Devils for many years and they had lined up a bid to sign him in 2014 from Bayern Munich when David Moyes was in charge.

However, the same report states that when Moyes was replaced by Van Gaal, the Dutchman wasn’t keen to sign the German midfielder so Kroos opted for Real Madrid instead.

However, with Van Gaal seemingly certain to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, United could be back in for the talented 26-year-old.

And that transfer would appear even more likely if Jose Mourinho is appointed, as expected with the Portuguese manager no doubt keen to bolster the United ranks with world-class talent.

However, it’s likely that a player of Kroos’ ability will require Champions League football and Van Gaal’s side face a tough battle to achieve that this campaign.

They're currently fifth in the Premier League, level on points with Manchester City in fourth, having played a match more than their rivals.

It’s been reported that Madrid are planning an overhaul of their squad and Kroos could be one of the players that is allowed to leave as Los Blancos seek to end their league title which stretches back to 2012.

Zinedine Zidane’s side trail Barcelona by 12 points with and are realistically out of the title race in Spain.
