The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have enjoyed their side’s spending over the last 18 months. Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils have signed some of Europe’s best – and most expensive – talent, with the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba coming to Old Trafford.
That has, naturally, led to development on the field, with Mourinho’s men now firmly entrenched in second-place in the Premier League. Though not quite where they need to be, there has undoubtedly been some progress over the last few years.
Unsurprisingly, then, given the success, it doesn’t look like Man Utd’s spending is going to slow down anytime soon. According to the Independent, Toni Kroos is the next player in Jose Mourinho’s crosshairs, with the Portuguese eager to secure more quality in midfield.
Kroos – who is rated at £72 million by Transfer Markt – would certainly deliver that. The 28-year-old is a creative midfielder with an expert eye for a pass, and he’d be a perfect fit alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in the midfield.
Unsurprisingly, it hasn’t taken long for Man Utd fans to react to the news over on Twitter, and it’s fair to say that they are unanimously behind the deal. Though many recognise that it won’t be easy, given that Real Madrid will likely not want to sell him, that isn’t taking away from their dreams of landing him.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

Just read United linked with Toni Kroos, I saw Rafael Varane at the weekend. Who's gonna leave #RM to sign for #MUFC at the moment? Nobody, that's who!! Hope I'm wrong but it seems to me to be somewhere between hopelessly optimistic and deluded!!

I’ve been reading the Toni Kroos to United rumours. I’d love too see it happen but very skeptical that Real Madrid would sell, perhaps, their best midfield player!! #MUFC

If I was to pick any CM I’d love us to sign it would be Toni Kroos, unfortunately it’s never gonna happen, Madrid won’t sell and even if they where they’re gonna ask for De Gea in return so NO! Realistic options could be Fabinho, Weigl or Thiago, maybe even Vidal #MUFC

I genuinely wonder sometimes are some of these rumours true or its made up by the press because we want to hear.This Kroos to United rumour makes no sense. But if we are looking at a player like that I’m absolutely happy.Even Weigl is mentioned#MUFC #MUFC_FAMILY #Kroos #Weigl pic.twitter.com/TmSrMDNeUx

MUFC need a couple new signings: #MUFC
1. RB – Meunier (insane crossing for Lukaku)
2. CM – Kroos (rumoured but would be insane, if not then Savić)
3. CDM – Fabinho (rotational option for Matic, and successor needed)
4. CB – Alderweireld (De Vrij on a free would be amazing too!)

Don't know from where Kroos news came up and it's all seems impossible to believe and why would Kroos wanna join United.
But that's exactly what I thought and felt about :

These reports of kroos are stating obvious… every club i the world would want kroos as he is best at what he does in world. But unless its de gea swap i dont see why madrid would entertain any offer. I believe jorginho will be the attainable option for that role. #kroos #mufc
