Bayer Leverkusen general manager Rudi Voller has ruled out a move for Manchester United target Toni Kroos, saying that the Bayern Munich midfielder will not rejoin his former club, reports Sky Sports.
The Germany international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena, after falling out of first-team favour with Pep Guardiola.
Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Kroos to Old Trafford, and speculation went into overdrive after he was spotted in conversation with the 24-year-old's agent, while taking in a Bundesliga match during the January transfer window.
Kroos was in talks over a new contract with Bayern, but rumours resurfaced that he could leave the German giants after negotiations stalled, prompting a response from the player on his official Facebook page, stating that he remains happy at the club.
Having previously enjoyed an 18 month spell on loan at Bayer Leverkusen, there have been suggestions that Kroos could return to the BayArena, until that was quickly played down by Voller.
"Re-signing Toni Kroos for Bayer Leverkusen is not realistic," he told German newspaper Bild. "We are by far unable to compete with the wages structure of a club like Bayern Munich.
"That's a fact. You have to accept that in an ungrudging way!"
