Manchester United have been handed a boost in the race to sign Bayern Munich ace Toni Kroos after the German club's president Karl Hopfner confirmed they had no plans to meet his wage demands and offer him a new contract.

The German midfielder is about to enter the final year of his current deal, with reports suggesting that he could be on his way out of the Allianz Arena.

Manchester United are said to keen on wrapping up a deal for the 24-year-old, and their hopes of doing just that were given a major boost when Hopfner admitted that Bayern didn't intend on trying to fight them off by offering a new contract.

He told Kicker Magazine when asked to confirm that Kroos, who will cost Manchester United £20 million, hasn't been offered a contract extension: “This is the state of things, no question."

He addd: "Certain financial limitations we will not be exceeded… at some point the player has to say what he wants.”

Hopfner also compared Kroos' case to Michael Ballack, who was allowed to leave Bayern on a free transfer to join Chelsea in 2006.

Kroos could be the first of many new faces at Manchester United this summer as new boss Louis van Gaal and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward look to rebuild the Red Devils following their worst Premier League campaign on record.

The Daily Mail claim the next man lured to Old Trafford could be Arjen Robben, while a bid has launched for Southampton's Luke Shaw.
