Manchester United face stiff competition from Real Madrid for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos.

Outspoken agent Francois Gallardo says Kroos favours a move to Real over the Premier League giants.

He told El Chiringuito de jugones: "It's about a top player who does not want to renew his contract. His goal is to move to Real Madrid.

"The player is part of one of the best national teams and will go to the World Cup. The country in which he plays for is Germany. The club is a top club: FC Bayern Munich.

"It is not (Bastian) Schweinsteiger. And it's not about an Austrian. It's about a German.

"The player who does not want to extend and wants to change in the summer to Real Madrid, is Toni Kroos."
