Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester City and Manchester United, according to a report.
Both teams are said to be in the market for a central midfielder to bolster their squads and appear to be chasing the same player.
United boss Jose Mourinho has strengthened his frontline this month with the addition of Alexis Sanchez, while opposite number Pep Guardiola has deliberately delayed his move for reinforcements until the end of the campaign.
Spanish outlet Don Balon claims that Kroos is the man wanted by Mourinho and Guardiola, and the World Cup winner is open to a move after growing frustrated at the Bernabeu.
Shakhtar Donetsk ace Fred is another player to have been linked with the Manchester rivals, though it may take £45m to prise him away from the Ukrainian club
