Max Kruse: Why Moyes Want German Ace To Make Man United Not S***e Anymore
According to those bods at the Telegraph, Moyes is booking his tickets, packing his red lederhosen and getting ready to fly to Germany to scout talented Borussia Mönchengladbach (a team I did not just look up the spelling of) striker Max Kruse.
While he samples the impeccable German lifestyle, he'll also be seeing one of Europe's most in-form forwards. With no shortage of options to chose from in attack, the 25-year-old German appeared from almost literally nowhere like magic smoke in the shape of striker great at scoring goals.
While seven goals in twelve games this year might not be on say, Lionel Messi or Ronaldo's level (because they are aliens), it's still an impressive tally and you should stop being so judgemental. He's not very fast but possesses extreme game intelligence and possesses brilliant control, passing and all-round play. Nice.
Along with the imminent arrival of Juan Mata from blue-hued supervillains Chelsea, Kruse's ability to play as a main striker or as a withdrawn forward - the dreaded 'nine-and-a-half' role - will be a great help to a Man United side which has struggled for adaptability this term.
UPDATE: And what with the totally-not-made-up rumour that Toni Kroos might be heading to OT too, maybe Kruse will have a few German mates to help ease his transition.
