Man Utd target Toni Kroos ‘expecting to play for Bayern Munich’ next season
Toni Kroos has no intention of being a Manchester United player next season.
The Bayern Munich midfielder has been a long-term target for the Old Trafford club, especially as his contract situation with the German champions remains unresolved.
Kroos, 24, has a year left with Bayern and has yet to accept their offer of an extension, giving a nod to a possible move away.
Kroos flourished under new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal at Bayern and is thought to be keen to work under his old coach again, but he has since claimed the English giants are not on his radar.
Speaking to Bild he said: ‘I am expecting to play for Bayern Munich next season. There was a lot of speculation, but Manchester is and was not an issue.
‘At this point in time I am fully focused on preparations for the World Cup.’
Kroos was the subject of a £20million offer from United with the two clubs having agreed a deal for his services when David Moyes was still in charge.
Meanwhile, Bayern’s president Karl Hopfner, claims Kroos is unlikely to receive a better contract offer from the German club.
