Manchester United boss David Moyes is plotting a summer move for Toni Kroos and can expect to pay in excess of £20 million to land the Bayern Munich playmaker, reports The Metro.
The publication suggests that, after Kroos' brother - Felix - revealed that the siblings have discussed a potential United move for Toni, that the struggling Red Devils boss is now planning a swoop that would see the club offer the player a whopping £250,000-per-week.
24-year-old Kroos has been with the Bundesliga giants since 2006 and has made his mark at the Allianz Arena in recent seasons as a dynamic and exciting attacking midfield talent.
However, despite his obvious ability that was expertly showcased during Bayern Munich's comfortable 2-0 victory over Arsenal in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at the Emirates Stadium, his future with the Bavarian outfit appears subject to doubt with reports claiming that Kroos has put all potential contract talks on hold until the end of the season.
La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have both also been linked with Kroos, but it would appear to be Manchester United who are most in need of a player of his ability.
While the purchase of Spaniard Juan Mata from Chelsea during the recent January transfer window was an obvious attempt by Moyes to solve the problem of Manchester United's worrying lack of creative nous, recent performances suggest more signings will be necessary this summer.
The versatile Kroos, who has made 21 appearances for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga title this season as Pep Guardiola's formidable side have swept all before them, would certainly provide a significant boost.
At present, it remains slightly unclear just how much in excess of £20 million it could take for Manchester United to prise Kroos away from the Allianz Arena.
However, with Manchester United apparently possessing substantial funds with which to bolster their squad this summer, you have to assume that the club would be able to afford him.
