Man United are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign German international pair Marco Reus and Toni Kroos according to Football Direct News.

The Old Trafford side have apparently held talks with SportsTotal, the agency that represents both players, as they seek to bring in the Bundesliga duo.

Bayern Munich midfielder Kroos is in lengthy contractual negotiations with his Allianz Arena employers, keen to see his wages significantly increased so that he can be up with the club’s top earners, a request that appears to have met with a muted response from the Bavarian club.

David Moyes is keen to bring in the 24 year old midfielder, who has been in excellent form this season.

The Man United manager also wants to bring in Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus to help boost his options in the final third.

Reus has been a massive success since moving to Borussia Dortmund, scoring 30 goals and providing 20 assists in 78 appearances, this despite the club’s fall from Bundesliga title contenders to also-rans.

Dortmund are now some 20 points off Bayern Munich and were lucky to scrape through to the last 16 of the Champions League and having seen Mario Gotze leave for the Allianz Arena, and goal machine Robert Lewandowski set to follow suit, Reus could be tempted by a move to Man United.

This source values the pair at a combined £70m.
