The agent of Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos believes his client will stay at the Bundesliga giants until the end of his current contract.

Manchester United target Kroos is yet to sign a new deal at the Allianz Arena, which has fuelled speculation that he could leave the German champions in the summer.

However Kroos' agent believes the Bayern Munich will at the very least see out the remaining year of his contract.

Volker Struth, who represents Kroos, told German publication BILD: "For months we’ve been hearing all kinds of rumours and we won’t comment on them.

"But currently I believe that Toni will stay at Bayern at least until 2015."

News of Kroos' decision to remain in Germany until 2015 will be a major blow to Manchester United's summer transfer plans.

Red Devils boss David Moyes had made the 24-year-old his number one summer target as he believes Kroos is the man to fill the void left by the legendary Paul Scholes.

Moyes was spotted in Germany and at the Emirates Stadium earlier on in the season - running the rule over Kroos but may now have to switch his attention elsewhere.

The Scotsman will get another chance to see the £25million-rated deep-lying playmaker in action again tonight, as Manchester United face Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
