Manchester United have agreed a £20m deal with Bayern Munich for the signature of Toni Kroos and are moving fast to secure a deal with Arjen Robben, according to the Daily Mail.

The deal was eventually sanctioned by David Moyes but new manager Louis van Gaal has given the Red Devils the go ahead to conclude a deal with the German.

Kroos is in his final year of contract and has failed to agree terms with the Bundesliga club over a new deal, with Bayern unwilling to meet his wage demands.

His arrival will be a major push in the arm for United, who have struggled in the middle of the park owing to a lack of runners. Kroos' presence will give them that much-needed threat from midfield, which has been lacking this season.

Michael Carrick has entered his mid-thirties and is unable to dictate the game, allowing Kroos to make the central midfield position his own.

Kroos flourished under the guidance of van Gaal during his time at Bayern and is looking to rekindle the relationship with his former manager at Old Trafford. Kroos' arrival is likely to be followed by Robben, who is currently with the Dutchman preparing for the World Cup scheduled to begin next month in Brazil.

The winger has recently signed a three-year contract with the German club but van Gaal is confident that he can convince the 30-year-old to move back to the Premier League.

The Red Devils have reportedly agreed a £27m deal with Southampton to sign Luke Shaw to secure their defensive liabilities at the back. The former Champions are also in the market for a centre-back as replacement for the outgoing duo of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels is favourite to fill the void, with van Gaal making him his top target for a move in the upcoming transfer window.
