Former Manchester United legend Paul Scholes claims that Bayern Munich forward Toni Kroos would have been the perfect signing for the club this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The German international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, but the recent arrival of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao last week may have ended the chances of that happening.

But Scholes – a man who knows more than most about playing in midfield for United – wanted to see Kroos join more than anyone.

“I love watching Toni Kroos. I think he’s brilliant. I love the way he controls the ball and controls games,” Scholes said.

“He can really play a pass and has superb vision. Kroos is capable of scoring goals too, from outside the box on either foot.

“I just wish Man United had signed him.

“Yes, it is good to see United bringing in new players, but they haven’t signed anything like the quality of Kroos.”

Kroos has been starring for Germany at the World Cup over the past month, but now looks set to join either Barcelona or Real Madrid once his duties with the national team come to an end later in July.
