Manchester United's hopes of signing Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos before tomorrow's deadline are extremely slim, according to The Sun.

The Premier League champions have just over 24 hours to land the highly-rated German international as the transfer window slams shut at 11pm on January 31.

Manchester United's chances of landing the £25million-rated 24-year-old appeared to have been boosted when Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola stated that players could be 'here today, gone tomorrow' when he was asked about speculation linking Kroos with a move to the Premier League.

Rumours suggesting Manchester United could land Kroos heightened last night when the German showed his unhappiness at being substituted in the 60th minute.

However reports suggest Manchester United have left it too late to sign the central midfielder.

Moyes, who made a personal check on Kroos last weekend, is keen on strengthening his midfield options - but may have to wait until the summer before signing one of his proposed targets.
