Manchester United broke their transfer record to lure Paul Pogba from Juventus back in 2016. The French international is a world class midfielder but he has been highly inconsistent at Old Trafford.
In such a situation, the Les Bleus star has been linked with a move away from the Red Devils and if that happens, Mourinho must sign a top quality midfielder to replace him.
According to Don Balon, Mourinho wants to sign two Real Madrid stars in the form of German midfielder Toni Kroos and French defender Raphael Varane.

The Spanish source have mentioned that the Portuguese manager is convinced that the former Bayern Munich star can give his core team the strength in the center of the park. Something that they have lacked in some games this season in the presence of Pogba, who could end up leaving in the summer transfer window.
Toni Kroos is without doubt one of the most complete midfielders in the world and signing him will not be easy. Since moving to the Bernabeu, the World Cup winning star has been a regular starter and under Zidane, he has been absolutely brilliant.
In the current campaign, the Kaiser has so far featured in 25 league games for the Los Blancos, scored 4 goals and provided 6 assists.
Kroos’ current contract with the reigning European champions will expire in 2022 and he earns around £325,000-a-week as per The Daily Star.
