No Manchester United offer for Kroos, insists agent

The midfielder’s representative has laughed off suggestions that the Premier League giants have offered a big-money deal and insists his client will stay with Bayern Munich

Toni Kroos’ agent Volker Struth has insisted that the Bayern Munich midfielder has not received a big-money offer from Manchester United.

The Premier League champions are keen admirers of the Germany international and are hopeful of luring him away from his current club this summer, with initial talks over a possible deal having begun in Munich during the Champions League clash.

A recent report suggested that United have offered Kroos an annual salary of €16 million, but Struth has made it clear there has not been an official offer and has ruled out a summer exit.

“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.”

The 24-year-old has a contract with Bayern until June 2015 and head coach Pep Guardiola stressed on Tuesday that the Bavarians are keen to hold on to the midfielder beyond the expiry date of his existing deal.

Nevertheless, contract renewal talks have so far been unfruitful and Kroos has refused to rule out leaving Bayern for a move abroad.
