Manchester United have revived their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, according to reports.

David Moyes recently revealed he had agreed terms for the World Cup winner back in 2013-14, however he decided to pursue a career at the Bernabeu.

Independent’s Chief Football Writer, Miguel Delaney, claims the Spanish club are now willing to sell the 27-year-old in the summer even though those close to the hierarchy claim they would not sanction a sale.

Paul Scholes has recently come out and revealed his admiration for Kroos, as the Man United legend believes he’d be a perfect replacement for Michael Carrick once he retires at Old Trafford.

The uncertainty around Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann could yet impact a potential deal as Jose Mourinho has already confirmed his intentions to improve the squad in the summer transfer window.

Reports claim United have already agreed personal terms with the French star’s representatives, however a deal would most likely go through if Diego Simeone leaves the Vicente Calderon.

Mourinho has already signed the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly without Champions League football to offer and if he sets his sights on Kroos or Griezmann, there’s a good chance we’ll see either of them in a United sirt.
