Manchester United are keen on getting Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos despite his less inspiring performance for Germany at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The former Bayern Munich star was in fine form for the Galacticos heading into the world’s greatest football fiesta but failed to maintain his fine form for the former World Champions, who failed to qualify to round-16 of the competition for the first time in their history.
Though Kroos looked too tired and out of form, Mourinho has charged his employers to make move for his signature this summer.
United must see-off completions from Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea if they must sign the 28-year-old.
In other Manchester news, Mourinho is reportedly eyeing a player-plus-cash move for PSG midfielder Marco Verratti.
According to reports, the Portuguese manager is set to offer underperforming Paul Pogba in an exchange for the Paris St-German player this summer.
However, well-known journalist Duncan Castle suggests he can’t see Mourinho making such move for the player due to his height.
The journalist also revealed that with Fred’s signature already in the bank, Mourinho is not that type of manager who loves ‘short’ midfielders in his team.
He has already signed a short player in the person of Fred, he wouldn’t want to add another short player to partner with the Brazilian in the 2018-19 season.
