Toni Kroos and Manchester United have been mentioned in the same breath before, but now it is Jose Mourinho rather than David Moyes who reportedly wants to bring him to Old Trafford.
The Independent claims that the Red Devils will launch a bid when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season.
It was thought in 2014 that United would clinch Kroos’s signature from Bayern Munich, but he ended up moving to the Bernabeu instead.
One man who is keen to see the midfielder at the North-West club is Paul Scholes as he believes that the 27-year-old is a decent replacement for Michael Carrick.
United have the funds to do plenty of business this summer, and The Independent states that the club will be looking at star names to boost their commercial standing.
Supporters have been given their views on the Kroos rumours, with some excited about the idea of signing him, while others are not convinced.
Toni Kroos would be my Carrick replacement. One of few players left who dictate the midfield from deep like Pirlo etc. Hard to find #MUFC

Man Utd want Toni Kroos, again. That would be a superb long-term Carrick replacement. Would also make an awesome trio with Herrera & Pogba
