Manchester United target 'playing poker' with Bayern

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos, a reported target for Manchester United, has been warned not to ‘play poker too much’ with his current employers amid an apparent wrangle over a proposed new contract.

The 24-year-old’s current deal at the Allianz Arena expires at the end of next season and negotiations are supposed to have broken down, leading to further speculation that Kroos could leave the club.

Kroos is reportedly holding out for the offer of a significantly increased salary, but former Bayern star Mehmet Scholl has urged the player to be content with what he has or else risk his future in Munich.

"I think it's not wise for Toni to play poker too much with Bayern," Scholl told TZ.

"That's how it seems at the moment. His current wages are enough for him to have warm food on the table twice a day already!"

Manchester United have been mentioned as potential suitors for the Germany international, with David Moyes having initially been linked with a £25 million bid for Kroos during the January transfer window.

It remains to be seen if there will be renewed attempt to bring the player to Old Trafford in the summer, although Moyes could be tempted by Kroos’ potential availability.
