While Manchester United have reportedly bettered their contract offer for Bayern Munich’s, Toni Kroos, the Germans will do all they can to keep the German international.
Bayern have several times reiterated that Kroos will at least see out his contract until 2015, but reports continuously claim that the Red Devils will make a massive bid for the 24-year-old this summer.
The Guardian reported that United have now offered Kroos a £260.000 (R 4,6 million) a-week deal, a figure which amazingly would quadruple his reported current salaray of £72.000 (R 1,3 million) a-week at Bayern.
Contract talks between the player and the treble winners have been stalled after both parties were not able to agree on the ‘value’ of the player, but Kroos is believed to make a decision before the World Cup.
Bayern coach, Pep Guardiola, confirmed yesterday that the Bayern bosses have not yet given up hope of convincing Kroos to stay.
"(Rummenigge and Sammer) will do everything to keep Toni here,” the Spaniard said.
“But it is up to Toni. He is a young person, it is his decision."
Is Toni Kroos perhaps using the interest from Manchester United to get a better deal at Bayern Munich? Have your say in the comment section below.
