Real Madrid star and Germany international Toni Kroos is co-hosting a podcast with his brother Felix and the duo recently hit on a number of different topics, including Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick.
Flick, it appears, annoyed Kroos at the 2014 World Cup after making the star midfielder wake up to get breakfast. Kroos, of course, was talking about Flick in jest.
“I only had a problem with him for the national team once,” said Kroos. “That was when he woke me up several times at the 2014 World Cup and sent me to breakfast.”
Manchester United have not given up on the chance to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, according to the Telegraph. The 20-year-old England international has struggled for form this season, but United are not put off by inconsistency in a player so young. They could now go back to the German club in the summer.
While Manchester United might be pushing for Sancho, it appears that Bayern Munich’s David Alaba is no longer on their radar.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has prioritized getting a center-back, but the reports states that it is unlikely that the Red Devils will make a serious effort to bring in Alaba.
With Paul Pogba’s career with Manchester United looking increasingly unstable, Juventus might be ready to throw him a lifeline:
According to Turin-based local issue Corriere di Torino, Juventus management are in talks with Manchester United, once more, over fetching French international midfielder Paul Pogba (27) back. As reported before, the operation started months ago, with several breaks; to date, Red Devils star, while his terms with the club seem to be crumbling down again, looks eager for a move out, and a Bianconeri return is feeling like a nice solution to him.
