The agent of superstar Bundesliga duo Marco Reus and Toni Kroos was not present during Manchester United's thumping 4-0 win over Norwich on Saturday evening, reports suggest.
This is according to the Manchester Evening News, who claim reports that Sascha Breese - an agent with SportsTotal - was sat next to Sir Alex Ferguson at the match have been denied by a representative from the company.
Indeed, it would appear that no-one at all from SportsTotal was at Old Trafford to observe the first victory of Ryan Giggs' interim management career, calming any speculation that Manchester United could be in talks over a move for either Kroos, Reus or indeed any of the agency's other clients.
Both German internationals are known to be long-term targets for Manchester United, with reports earlier this week claiming that they have both been identified as potential signings by experienced Dutch boss Louis van Gaal if he were indeed to succeed David Moyes this summer.
24-year-old Kroos - who is worth around £25 million - is one of Bayern Munich's brightest stars, but there has been considerable doubt over his future at the Allianz Arena in recent months with talks over a new contract having seemingly hit a sizeable snag.
With Manchester United evidently craving midfield reinforcements, Kroos would be a tremendous coup, particularly considering that the Red Devils are set to miss out on the Champions League for the first time in almost two decades.
Likewise, Reus - valued at around £30 million - would be another tremendous potential signing for Manchester United, with the Borussia Dortmund wideman having established a considerable reputation as one of Europe's top attacking threats at Signal Iduna Park in recent seasons.
