Jose Mourinho has ordered Manchester United to keep tabs on Toni Kroos and Fabinho ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports.

Instead, the report claims, Mourinho has now turned his attentions towards Real Madrid star Kroos and Monaco midfielder Fabinho ahead of the summer transfer window.

The story also states that Manchester United have had a bid rejected for Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe as the speculation ahead of the summer transfer window begins to gather pace.
