According to the latest reports coming out of both England and Germany, reigning Premier League champions Manchester United are hoping to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos before tomorrow’s transfer deadline.
The Red Devils recently completed the signing of Juan Mata from Chelsea for a reported £37.1 million, but they could make another late move as they hope to revive their top 4 bid.
Manchester United are set to submit an official proposal for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos, who appears to be nearing a move away from Alianz Arena.
The Germany international reacted angrily after being substituted in yesterday’s Bundesliga triumph over Stuttgart, and it is believed Pep Guardiola would consider any proposal for his services.
Manchester United boss David Moyes sat next to Toni Kroos’ representative in the stands of Borussia Park as Bayern defeated Borussia M’gladbach last weekend, which is enough to suggest there is truth in the latest rumours.
Despite being six points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool, Manchester United look a good bet at 2/1 to finish in top 4, with the odds likely to be slashed if the Red Devils complete the capture of Toni Kroos.
The 24-year-old midfielder is a product of Bayern Munich youth academy and he has long ago developed into an important member of the squad.
Kroos went on to make a total of 162 Bundesliga appearances for the Bavarians, scoring 22 goals in the process, while notching 5 goals in 41 Germany caps up to date.
