Manchester United dealt definitive blow by Toni Kroos

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United’s top summer target has delivered a crushing blow to their hopes of signing him in the next transfer window, by insisting that he is happy at Bayern Munich.

Toni Kroos, who has long been the subject of rumours suggesting he would become the flagship signing for David Moyes at the end of this season, revealed his opinion on the gossip tipping him to move in German newspaper TZ, and it didn’t paint a welcoming picture for United fans.

The Bayern midfielder hailed Old Trafford as a beautiful stadium, having impressed during the 1-1 draw in the Champions League there last night, but, according to the Evening Standard, confirmed he had no intentions of swapping sides.

“It (Old Trafford) is a beautiful stadium. But I belong to Bayern Munich and that's good," Kroos is reported to have said.

The comments echo the stance taken by Bavarian chief Karl Heinz Rummenigge, who earlier this week rubbished claims that Kroos would be plying his trade elsewhere next year. Despite the fact that United were said to be willing to pay the 24-year-old £250,000-a-week to sign up to their cause, it’s now looking increasingly unlikely that he’ll be anywhere but the Allianz Arena come the start of the 2014/15 season.
