Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos fails to rule out Manchester United move

With contract talks stalling at Bayern Munich, it seems as though German international Toni Kroos is assessing his options.

The 24-year-old midfielder, who tore Arsenal apart in Bayern’s recent UEFA Champions League win at the Emirates, is out of contract at the end of next season and has been linked with a move to Manchester United for quite some time.

Kroos’ star has risen for club and country over the past few seasons, as his role at Bayern under new manager Pep Guardiola has increased and Munich’s new manager is extremely reluctant to let Kroos leave the reigning European champions.

Speaking to media ahead of Bayern’s last-16 clash with Arsenal at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, Kroos refused to rule out a move to England.

“No decision has been made. It is no secret the Premier League is a possibility. I will consider everything. If I should leave. I’ve heard that people have written that I might go to England. But there’s nothing new from my point of view. No decision has been made. The situation is that I don’t have any agreement right at the moment at Bayern. On the other side there is no agreement in place anywhere.”

If that isn’t a ‘come and get me’ plea, I don’t know what is.

Kroos is a sensational central midfielder who has all the tools to succeed in the modern game. Quick, tall, strong, able to play across midfield and attack, plus he possesses incredible ability on the ball and can finish superbly when given the chance, Kroos would be an absolute gem for United.

With the Red Devils rebuild needing a focal point and David Moyes continuing to scour Europe for new talent, including several trips to Germany to watch Bundesliga matches, many believe Kroos would be a great fit for United.

Having watched Kroos in person against Arsenal in Bayern’s 2-0 win in February, the German midfielder lashed in a whirling dervish into the top corner to put the Bavarian’s ahead and sprayed the ball around confidently throughout as he dictated Bayern’s tempo.

Kroos wants to feel wanted at Bayern, but with senior officials in Munich stating ‘everyone is replaceable’ as Kroos’ agents play hard ball, it seems as though United could nip in and snatch the talented German midfielder. Watch this space.

And if you had any sense about you, you’d watch Kroos in action against Arsenal this Tuesday. This guy is a real star and the PL would be delighted to welcome him to England.
