Manchester United are reportedly set to Beat Manchester City to Toni Kroos’ signature this summer. The Real Madrid star is one of the best midfielders in the world having won a lot of trophies for his club and country.
The former Bayern star was part of the Bundesliga team that won the 2012-13 Champions League trophy before he switched to Santiago Bernabeu two seasons later.
After joining the Los Blancos, the German established himself as an integral part of the team and he has helped them to a landmark achievement including two back-to-back Champions League glories and one La Liga trophy.
Due to his exploits for Zinedine Zidane’s team this season, Manchester United manager José Mourinho has set his eyes on signing their longtime target in the summer.
The Old Trafford outfits are believed to make some changes to their squad ahead of next season and Mourinho is hoping to lure the 28-year-old to join him at the club.
According to Don Balon, United should be ready to release at least £100m for the player’s services if they must convince Madrid to let go of him before the start of the 2018-19 season.
The Spanish media outlet also reveals that Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is eyeing a possible swoop for Toni Kroos as he hopes to reinforce his team during the summer transfer window.
The former Barcelona manager might see some of his trusted players leave the Etihad Stadium in the summer, he is, therefore, willing to add more quality players to his team who would probably serve as replacements.
