The agent of Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos has told Manchester United not to bother bidding for his client, as he won't be leaving the Allianz Arena this summer.
Kroos has been the subject of intense speculation over the last two months with regards to a big money move to Old Trafford in the summer.
The German international has been at odds with the Bavarian club over a new contract. With his current deal expiring in 2015, the hope from Manchester United is that Bayern will cash in on Kroos instead of losing him for free a year later.
But his agent, Volker Struth, has insisted that the Red Devils are wasting their time pursuing the midfielder and claims Kroos is set to stay at Bayern until 2015 at least.
He also confirmed that representatives from Old Trafford are yet to offer Bayern or Kroos an offer.
"There has not been any official contract offer [from Manchester United]," Kroos' representative told Bild.
"And there is absolutely no need to table an official bid either because Toni will stay with Bayern Munich at least until 2015."
Manchester United are desperate to land another marquee signing following the addition of Juan Mata in January and David Moyes is more than aware that he can not afford another high profile transfer failure.
Moyes and chief executive Ed Woodward tried and failed to sign Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara and Ander Herrera last summer, leaving Marouane Fellaini as their only major addition.
Officials at Old Trafford have reportedly already signed off on a £260,000-a-week contract offer for Kroos and were confident of tempting him away from the Bundesliga champions.
Pep Guardiola has remained defiant of the 24-year-old's future, insisting that the club are keen to tie him down to a long-term contract.
But until Kroos does sign a contract extension, questions over his future, and a potential move to Old Trafford, will continue.
