Manchester United plot move for £25m Bayern Munich star

Manchester United are ready to make an offer for Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos, reports suggest.

According to The Daily Mail, David Moyes is ready to bid for the German international after it emerged that Kroos - whose current contract with the Bundesliga champions is set to expire next summer - is looking for around £150,000k-per-week in salary.

24-year-old Kroos, who has been with Bayern Munich since 2006, is a key figure of Pep Guardiola's first-team setup at the Allianz Arena and has scored one goal and laid on three assists in 17 domestic games so far this season.

His name was first linked with Manchester United towards the end of last week, when reports suggested that Sascha Breese - Kroos' agent - met Moyes, Phil Neville and Steve Round outside Borussia Park during their trip to watch Borussia Monchengladback face Bayern Munich before escorting them inside the ground and sitting with them during the match.

While it was initially believed that Patrick Herrmann and striker Mario Mandzukic were the focus of Moyes' Bundesliga trip, it appeared from that point on that Kroos could potentially be a viable target and now it looks as if Manchester United are keen to test Bayern's resolve with a bid.

Despite contract talks with Kroos having seemingly stalled, however, it is understood that Bayern are not eager to part with the playmaker and would reportedly ask for a fee of at least £25 million for his services.

Manchester United, who have endured a tricky start to the Moyes era at Old Trafford, appear to have been galvanised by the recent signing of former Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

Although the Spaniard should improve the Red Devils' issues with a lack of consistent creativity, it is evident that the squad will require further strengthening if they are to seek a swift return to their former glory.
