Kroos nailed his best Scholes impression and left United fans wanting more

When Manchester United were linked with a move for Toni Kroos in January following David Moyes being spotted talking to his agent in Germany, United fans were giddy at the thought of the German coming to Old Trafford.

After last night’s performance, the tantalising prospect of Kroos got just a little bit more appealing.

He was absolutely outstanding on the night. Passing, movement, tackling, goals – it was the complete midfield performance in every way and to top it off, he scored an outrageously precise curler to put Bayern Munich in the lead.

Overall, he completed 147/152 passes, over 90% were in Arsenal’s half, and had five shots (three on target, one goal).

Paul is on the money with his Paul comparison.

Kroos displayed a real arsenal of passes. From intricate short passing to measured diagonal balls, he did it all with consummate ease.

He dictated the ebb and flow of the game in much the same fashion Scholes did at United.

Kroos ran the show from start to finish (following Arsenal’s bright start that quickly died down) and did it on the grandest of stages.

If there was any question about whether Kroos was a player who Bayern would be willing to fight to keep, those questions were surely put to bed last night.
