MANCHESTER UNITED are set to revive their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos. The Red Devils had the 2014 World Cup winner in their grasp in 2013/14 but Kroos opted for a move to Real Madrid instead. But Jose Mourinho is ready to try and sign Kroos, 27, again as The Special One looks to build his team again for next season. The move for the former Bayern Munich midfielder comes as doubts continue to surface over Antoine Griezmann’s £100million move to Old Trafford. The Atletico Madrid playmaker is wanted by United but Griezmann is waiting to see if United make it into the Champions League next season. Atletico tried to stop their star man from leaving by claiming United are a “small team”. United legend Paul Scholes has urged United to sign Kroos and revealed the German international influenced him towards the end of his career. Scholes said: “I really like Toni Kroos. When I neared the end of my career, I followed him closely and tried to play like Kroos. “I was a midfielder with an eye for the goal, but Kroos is one of the best midfield masterminds in the world. “Kroos would be perfect at United next to [Paul] Pogba and Ander Herrera.”
