Manchester United look at Kroos

Manchester United make Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos main transfer target, but not to replace Paul Pogba Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho keen on Real Madrid midfield star

United will reportedly go after the 28-year-old at the end of the season in order to strengthen the club's midfield.

There's a new name on Jose Mourinho's summer shopping list, says The Sun, and it's German ace Toni Kroos.

Jose Mourinho is considering a move for the Germany worldwide who he could pair with club record signing Paul Pogba in the middle of the park.

There have been concerns about the setup of the United midfield, though, with the partnership of Pogba and Matic in a 4-2-3-1 not bringing the best out of the Frenchman in particular. "United are thereby willing to test how resistant they would be to selling Kroos", Delaney wrote in his report.

Gareth Bale is resigned to the fact Real Madrid will look to sell him this summer with Karim Benzema also heading for the exit door.

It's expected to be a major summer of change at Real Madrid this summer, though Kroos is not one of the names the club are thought to be wanting to replace.

South Korea is now ranked ninth in the medal standings with four gold, two silver and two bronze medals. Russian athletes are competing in them under the Olympic flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russia".

Kroos could help United address the lack of balance in their midfield, playing in the number 8 role, between Nemanja Matić and Paul Pogba, who would be granted more freedom that he so famously needs for United to get the best out of him.

Los Blancos are said to be open to negotiations as they seek to raise funds for a world-record transfer for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar and stay within the Financial Fair Play regulations.

The Germany worldwide is seen as the ideal replacement for Michael Carrick, 36, who is set to retire this summer. "We are looking and we are going to try to sign a midfield player".

"When I don't want to say things, I don't say, but I don't take you in other directions".

When asked about the club's plan to sign a new midfielder this summer, Mourinho said: "We need to sign a midfield player because we are going to lose Michael Carrick".
