Paper Talk: Man Utd demand Kroos in swap deal; big-spenders eye Walcott move

Date published: Sunday 16th July 2017 12:11

Manchester United have named the Real Madrid player they want in a swap deal for David De Gea, while Everton are being linked with a move for a £30m Arsenal winger, according to Sunday’s papers.


Manchester United are reportedly demanding Toni Kroos in any David de Gea transfer to Real Madrid.

The La liga giants are said to have angered United by reigniting their interest in De Gea, having previously stated that they no longer wanted United’s number one.

United’s response has been to demand that Germany midfielder Toni Kroos be part of any deal, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Mourinho is a huge fan of the 27-year-old and believes he would form a incredible partnership with record signing Paul Pogba at the heart of United’s midfield.

Madrid are reluctant to let Kroos leave but United are testing how much they want De Gea, in the hope that they will end their interest once again or be prepared to let one of their top men move in the opposite direction.


Everton are reportedly targeting Arsenal’s Theo Walcott in £30m transfer swoop.

The Toffees had been strongly linked with a move for Walcott’s Gunners team-mate Olivier Giroud, but the France striker is now being tipped to replace Chelsea-bound Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Borussia Doertmund.

Now Ronald Koeman has switched his attention to Walcott, who can play out wide or as a central attacker, with the 28-year-old’s time at The Emirates seemingly coming to an end.

It’s unlikely that Koeman sees the England star as a straight replacement for Romelu Lukaku, with the Toffees boss still searching for a new No 9, but Walcott would be another strong attacking option at Goodison Park, should the report in the Sunday Mirror have any foundation.
