Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has told Manchester United they will not be signing Toni Kroos at the end of the season.

The Bayern Munich midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford during the last few months as the 24-year-old is yet to commit his long-term future to the recently-crowned Bundesliga champions.

Manchester United manager David Moyes has identified Kroos as the man to ease his side's midfield troubles - following a sub-standard season for the Premier League champions.

The under-fire Scotsman travelled to Germany in December to run the rule over Kroos - but is yet to make an official approach for the highly-rated playmaker.

However - despite Moyes' interest - Guardiola, who is preparing his side to take on Manchester United in the Champions League later tonight, has stated Kroos will remain at Bayern Munich next season even if both parties fail to come to an agreement over a new deal.

Speaking in the build up to Bayern Munich's encounter against Manchester United, Guardiola said on Kroos: “Toni has one year more of a contract and Toni will remain there.

“I hope he can extend his contract and stay with us because he is a very good guy, he loves his game.

“It is not just a job for him and I would like him to stay but I spoke with the player, with the club, I gave my opinion. After that I am not manager, I am just the trainer.”

Manchester United will get the chance to see the German international up close tonight as Kroos is expected to start against the Red Devils.
