Manchester United could move for Toni Kroos next summer

Manchester United may leave a bid for Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos until next summer, reports suggest.

The Red Devils have been frequently linked with £40 million-rated Kroos in recent weeks, yet The Daily Mail now claim that a move for his services could be delayed until 2015.

A gifted playmaker who can already impressively lay claim to 42 senior German international caps as well as three Bundesliga titles and one Champions League crown, 24-year-old Kroos' future with Bayern Munich has come under increasing scrutiny during the second half of the season with new contract talks at the Allianz Arena having seemingly ground to a halt.

Despite remaining one of Pep Guardiola's most important players, it is beginning to look very questionable indeed if he will agree to sign a new deal in Bavaria and it has to be considered doubtful that a club of Bayern Munich's impressive stature will be content to lose him in the future for nothing.

While the potential reasoning for Manchester United possibly delaying an offer for Kroos is not made particularly clear, one could easily assume that it may well be to prove that they are not a club who have entered into any sort of terminal decline.

After a truly abject 2013/14 season under the rather hapless leadership of previous boss David Moyes, Manchester United will not be competing in the Champions League next year for the first time since 1995.

For a player of Kroos' undoubted quality, missing out on the Champions League - even if only for one solitary campaign - seems rather unthinkable.

However, if Manchester United can secure an instant return to Europe's elite at the first time of asking, then they will surely find signing players of such a high caliber far simpler.

The addition of an reputable manager to replace Moyes could also presumably help immensely in the transfer market, with Louis van Gaal still considered to be the favourite to land the role at Old Trafford on a full-time basis.
