When David Moyes took over from Sir Alex Ferguson at the Red Devils, a number of players were linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Toni Kroos was one of the many midfielders reportedly on Moyes' list, along with Mesut Ozil and Cesc Fabregas, who both eventually chose Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.

Kroos has now revealed he had an agreement with the club after taking to Moyes four years ago.

“I knew that Manchester loved me and (David) Moyes supported the signing absolutely,” Kroos told GQ, as cited by Marca.
 
“We had a very pleasant afternoon. We talked a lot about United's football plan and he convinced me and in the end I agreed to do it…verbally.
 
“I'm not someone who cares about what it could be. Yes, it was close. I was almost a Manchester United player, but it didn't happen.
 
“One thing I can say with certainty: at Manchester United I would not have won the Champions League three times.”
 

Do you think Kroos made the right decision to snub Man United for Real Madrid? Have your say in the comment section below.
