Manchester United are set to ask for German midfielder Toni Kroos in any deal for David De Gea, reports claim.
The Red Devils thought they had closed the chapter where Real wanted De Gea, a club where the Spaniard is keen on joining.
Reports in England say United are not happy that Real Madrid have opened discussions with the view of luring the star goalkeeper to the Bernabeu. De Gea could have since joined Madrid but for a clerical error that stalled the deal.
Jose Mourinho now wants Toni Kroos, who he admires, to move to United if Madrid want the De Gea deal to happen this summer. The 2014 World Cup winner could partner Paul Pogba in the middle and help the club build a stronger side. Continue reading “UNITED WANT KROOS IN DE GEA DEAL”
Jose Mourinho has lifted just about every major trophy in the world of football at club level as the Portuguese coach is one of the few managers to have won the UEFA Champions League with different clubs as well as many other significant pieces of silverware including: The Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Coppa Italia and FA Cup just to name a few of his most memorable trophies that Mourinho has added to his collection.
Despite all of the previously mentioned pieces of silverware that the Portuguese has won, he has recently emerged and stated that the trophy which he considers to be the most important of his entire career is a title which is generally regarded to not be as influential or impressive as a few others that Mourinho has lifted throughout his managerial career.

Ryan Giggs is confident that striker Marcus Rashford will be able to end his goal drought sooner rather than later.
After coming through the ranks at United last season, Rashford quickly became one of the sensational names in the English Premier League. He burst onto the scene, after being a relative unknown, in the best possible manner after scoring in big games against the likes of Liverpool. The arrival of Mourinho was always going to be an uncertain period for many members in the squad and it has indeed been the case for Rashford.
After having been a striker throughout his youth career, Mourinho has preferred using the 19-year-old as a winger. He has not been able to make much of an impact, while playing on the wings has also significantly impacted his goal record. Rashford has not scored for United since the 4-1 win over Leicester City in the league in September. Continue reading “Ryan Giggs Confident Marcus Rashford Will End Goal Drought”
With the announcement that Jose Mourinho will be taking charge of Manchester United soon, we should expect plenty of changes happening at Old Trafford on and off the pitch.
Mourinho has a particular way of managing his team, and he is sure going to transform the way Manchester United look at the moment. Fans should be prepared for a busy summer at Old Trafford.
The first thing that he will want to sort out will be his team. Manchester United do need a recognized striker at the moment, and it is highly possible that Jose Mourinho might be going for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The latter is out of contract after having left Paris Saint-Germain and will be the kind of player that the Portuguese manager like. Indeed, he already managed Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan, and it is highly possible that they might be reunited again.
A decision will also have to be made about Ryan Giggs. The latter has been the assistant of Louis van Gaal, and it is unlikely that he will continue in the same role under Mourinho. He would feel that it was his destiny to take charge of Manchester United after the departure of Van Gaal and now that Mourinho might be taking over, it is tough to find Giggs staying.
