The brother of Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has revealed the two have spoken about the possibility of the Germany international joining Manchester United.
Kroos, 24, continues to be linked with a summer move to Old Trafford amid contract negotiations with the Bavarian giants.
Despite the ongoing rumours, the 24-year-old ace — whose current contract at the Allianz Arena is set to expire at the end of next season — has been a colossal figure in midfield for Bayern, tallying one goal and six assists in 36 appearances.
According to reports, Manchester United are willing to offer Kroos a deal worth £250,000-a-week, which would treble his current wages.
Now then, what should Kroos do, stay at Bayern or join United?
“Yes, we have already spoken about it as Manchester United is my favourite club since I was a child,” Felix Kroos told Sky Deutschland.
“Still I will not advise him [Toni Kroos] about anything in this respect.
“He is very capable of making the decision on his own.
“And there are definitely worse situations than to decide whether to stay on or leave a club like Bayern Munich.”
Suarez happy at Liverpool
Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez has insisted his long-term future at Anfield does not depend on whether or not the club secure UEFA Champions League football this season.
The Uruguay international, 27, has been on scintillating form for the Reds this term, having bagged a league-leading 24 goals and 10 assists despite missing the first five games of the campaign due to suspension.
Suarez is contracted to the club until the summer of 2017 and has revealed he does not want to leave Merseyside anytime soon.
When asked if he would stay at the club if they failed to secure a top-four finish, the Uruguayan told FourFourTwo magazine: “I think so. I signed my new contract because I’m very happy here and I want to stay where I’m enjoying football and life.
“Playing in the Champions League isn’t dependent on that.
“I’d actually prefer not to win this Golden Boot and for Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League this season.
“Any player would miss the Champions League. We’ve not been good enough since I’ve been here to qualify, but this could definitely be our year.
“It would be a frustration not to get fourth because we’ve done everything possible and given our maximum to qualify.”
Suarez, who joined Liverpool from Ajax for a fee of €26.5 million in January 2011, has totaled 31 goals and 12 assists in 35 appearances in all competitions for the Reds in 2013/14.
Next up for Liverpool is a mouth-watering clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, 16 March 2014.
