Former Manchester United right-back, and current Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville has revealed who he would be targeting if he were in charge at the club during a Twitter question and answer session with his followers.
The England coach plumped for Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan when asked which he would sign out of the German and his international teammate Toni Kroos, before admitting that his dream signing would be former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

United have been linked with both Gundogan, who is currently nursing a long term injury, and Bayern Munich midfielder Kroos throughout the past few months, prompting an inevitable question to Neville over which of the pair they should sign to add to their ailing midfield.
Neville plumped for Gundogan over Kroos, but also admitted that his dream signing would be – unsurprisingly – former teammate Ronaldo.
Ronaldo left Old Trafford for Real Madrid in 2009 but many United fans still harbour dreams of a fairy tale return to the club by the Portuguese superstar, which Neville appears to share.
Despite only completing 90 minutes on eight occasions, Kroos has created 32 chances this season – more than any United midfielder.
