Paul Scholes has urged Manchester United to sign the “brilliant” Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich this summer.

The Germany international has long been linked with a transfer to Old Trafford, speculation which has been heightening as the midfielder continues to stall over a new contract at the Bundesliga club.

I love the way he controls the ball and controls games

Former United midfielder Scholes is a keen admirer of the 24-year-old and would love to see the Red Devils sign him from the German side.

“I love watching Toni Kroos,” Scholes wrote in the Paddy Power blog.

“I think he’s brilliant. I love the way he controls the ball and controls games. He can really play a pass and has superb vision. Kroos is capable of scoring goals too, from outside the box on either foot.

“I just wish Manchester United had signed him. Yes, it is good to see United bringing in new players, but they haven’t signed anything like the quality of Kroos.”
