Jose Mourinho makes Real Madrid man his main target for summer transfer window

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos is reportedly Manchester United’s main midfield target this summer.

Real Madrid prepare £177m bid for Manchester City’s £200k-per-week star - originally posted on Sportslens.com According to Don Balon, Real Madrid are planning to make Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne their club record signing in the summer.
