Barcelona ready to battle Manchester United for Kroos

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona are considering a summer move for Bayern Munich star Toni Kross as uncertainty over his future in Bavaria grows, reports Spanish newspaper Sport.

The interest from Barcelona is bad news for Manchester United manager David Moyes, who is reportedly desperate to add quality options to a weak Red Devils midfield in the summer.

Moyes already faced a tough task in convincing Kroos to leave the Allianz Arena for Old Trafford, which will likely miss out on the grace of Champions League football next season.

A huge contract off of £250,000-a-week was reportedly on the table for Kroos at Manchester United, but interest from Barcelona makes the task of coaxing the German to Old Trafford a more daunting prospect.

Bayern are believed to be offering Kroos £100,000-a-week and talks remain at a standstill as the 24-year-old holds out for significantly more.

With his contract set to expire in 2015, it is looking more and more likely that he will depart in the summer, especially after he announced that talks are off until after the World Cup.

As his potential availability becomes a serious prospect, Barcelona have started to monitor the situation more closely.

With the offer of Champions League football and a more certain future at the top, Barcelona officials will be confident of persuading Kroos to reject the big money offer at Old Trafford.
