Toni Kroos? Cesc Fabregas? Gareth Bale? Or someone else?

Amongst the plethora of players that were linked to Manchester United post Sir Alex Ferguson’s era, David Moyes has named Toni Kroos as the biggest transfer disappointment from his time at Old Trafford.

The 56-year-old, alongside arguably the most prestigious post in English football, was given the financial support to sign superstar players following Ferguson’s retirement, back in 2013.

He failed to lure the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Gareth Bale, but according to him, Kroos’ decision to sign for Real Madrid and not Manchester United was the biggest miss.

Moyes’ fate was sealed after a seriously substandard run of form in the league, as United undoubtedly continue to feel the absence of a visionary leader until present date.

Reflecting on his recruitment failures when asked by beIN Sports, he conceded:

“Toni Kroos would certainly be the one. At that time we were very much after Gareth Bale and Cesc Fabregas. But I’ve got to say prior to that, at Everton, we were really close to a lot of good players. We just couldn’t quite get them over the line on several occasions.”

Moyes is presently in the relegation scrap with West Ham United.
