Manchester United are set to go head-to-head against cross-town rivals Manchester City in a bid to land Real Madrid star Toni Kroos, according to latest reports in Spain.

The two Mancunian juggernauts have locked the German international as one of their prime targets for the upcoming summer transfer window.

Kroos has been heavily linked with United over the past couple of months, and with the Red Devils’ veteran midfielder, Michael Carrick, set to retire at the end of the season, a potential transfer could see the £100 million-rated star make a move to Old Trafford.

As per the report by Spanish outlet Don Balon, the former Bayern Munich man could leave the Bernabeu this summer.
