Manchester United’s brilliant winning run in all competitions was halted by Bournemouth at Old Trafford yesterday.
Liverpool lost last Monday and Arsenal were defeated by the Reds last night. All in all, the Red Devils suffered a set back in their pursuit of the Champions League places.
As far as the transfers are concerned, Mourinho is ready to splash the cash and reinforce his squad in the summer transfer window.
According to reports in Spain (Don Balon), the Portuguese boss is eager to sign two Real Madrid stars in the form of Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane.
The French defender was brought to the Bernabeu when Jose was in charge of the club so he knows all about his qualities. However, United do not really need a center half at the moment.
Toni Kroos is arguably the best central midfielder in the world, who signed a new contract with the Los Blancos back in October 2016 and currently earns €400,500-a-week, €21million-a-year (BBC via AS).
Recently, United legend Paul Scholes heavily praised the German international and claimed that he is the best in the world (Football 365 via Kicker).
“When I came to the end of my career, I watched him closely and tried to play like Kroos.”
“I was a rather forward-looking midfielder, but Toni is the best in the world, and Kroos would be perfect next to Pogba and Ander Herrera at United.”
Capable of playing as a deep lying playmaker and also as a creative central midfielder, the 27-year-old World Champion will further amplify the quality of Man United’s midfield department.
The former Bayern Munich man has featured in 33 games for the European Champions this season, scored 2 goals and also provided 12 assists.
