I was Close to Signing for Manchester United Before Madrid Move

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has stated how close he came to joining Manchester United earlier in his career.

Prior to signing for Los Blancos, David Moyes hoped to add Kroos to his Manchester United side ahead of the rebuild he wasn't given the chance to oversee, however the German midfielder freely declares that he wouldn't have moved to Old Trafford ahead of the Spanish giants.

"Manchester had a lot of interest in me before the World Cup and a deal was close," Kroos to the Lauschangriff Podcast.

"Then my agent called me and told me about Real Madrid, and when Real Madrid appear you put Manchester behind them in the line.

"At the World Cup Joachim Low asked me if I was leaving for Madrid, so I told him about it and he was happy for me to negotiate things during the tournament."
