Manchester United are keen on making a move to sign Toni Kroos from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Spanish newspaper AS is reporting that the Red Devils have identified the Germany international as a key target this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

The same report says that Kroos’ name was mentioned frequently as Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward set out their plans for the summer transfer window.

According to the same article, Mourinho feels that Kroos would be the “ideal” addition to the Manchester United team this summer as he looks to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

However, the same story says that although Manchester United are prepared to spend big on trying to sign Kroos this summer, they are aware that a deal will be difficult.

According to the same article, Real Madrid have no intention of letting the 28-year-old midfielder leave the Bernabeu this summer, meaning that Manchester United face an uphill struggle in trying to persuade the La Liga side to do business.

Meanwhile, Manchester United officially confirmed their second signing of the summer transfer window last week by tying up a deal for midfielder Fred.
