Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos. The Daily Express says United could have a clear run at Kroos after Real Madrid pulled out of the race to sign him.

Kroos could be available for £25m but reports emanating on the continent indicate Real may be reluctant to spend big.

The midfielder hinted recently he would be open to moving to the Premier League and admitted: "No decision has been made.

"It is no secret that the Premier League is a possibility for me."
