Man Utd hopes over Toni Kroos hit by Bayern hope

Manchester United has been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Toni Kroos, as his club Bayern Munich have insisted they are still hopeful of agreeing a contract extension with him.

David Moyes is reportedly keen on taking the Germany international to Old Trafford and was spotted watching the Bundesliga champions recently in their win over Borussia Monchegladbach.

Kroos has been tipped to leave the Allianz Arena as talks over a new contract have not gone well, but Bayern Munich still retain some hope that an agreement can be reached.

"I hope that we will come up to an agreement with Toni," chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror to German press.

"He is a player we basically want to keep happy. Now we must look if we are making a contract, in the last analysis, to satisfy Toni as well as FC Bayern."

Manchester United have been criticised for lacking creative midfielders that can keep the ball effectively, but the club-record £37million signing of Juan Mata from Chelsea this week has shown they are willing to spend to big address the situation.

Adding a player of the calibre of Kroos would be a further statement of their intentions to redress any perceived weakness in the midfield, and Moyes appears to have decided to get ruthless with his underperforming stars.

Anderson and Fabio have already been offloaded on loan to Fiorentina and Cardiff City respectively, while Nani is reportedly close to agreeing a loan move to Inter Milan.
