Paul Scholes tells Man United to make this signing

Manchester United have revived their interest in Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, according to reports.

The 36-year-old, despite having numerous doubters, has had a brilliant career at Old Trafford, and has been an integral part of the team's success over the past decade.

The Red Devils are said to be willing to sign another top-class footballer next summer and the German International is in competition with Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann who, however, has yet to agree personal terms with the Premier League giants.

Carrick has earned plenty of praise for his performances in central midfield for Manchester United this season under new boss Jose Mourinho.

In December, former United manager David Moyes revealed that a deal was in place for the German worldwide to join the club from Bayern Munich in summer 2014, only for the Scot's sacking that April to scupper the transfer.

Independent's Chief Football Writer, Miguel Delaney, claims the Spanish club are now willing to sell the 27-year-old in the summer even though those close to the hierarchy claim they would not sanction a sale.

As recently as late January, Griezmann had been seen as nearly certain to meet that status in the summer, with United having agreed personal terms with the French star's representatives.

That time Moyes claimed that he nearly signed the midfielder then and a verbal agreement was done in between both of them.

Gameiro had been a key player in Sevilla's trio of Europa League successes under Unai Emery.
