Pep: Kroos Could Leave Bayern

Bayern Munich coach, Pep Guardiola, has given Manchester United fans more hope that Toni Kroos could be one of the high-profile signings David Moyes is talking about.

The 24-year-old German international is one of Pep’s favourite players and still under contract until 2015, but has so far not reached an agreement on an extension despite ongoing negotiations in recent weeks.

Kroos was a main pillar in Jupp Heynckes’ squad that won five trophies last year and has been one of the few true regulars under new coach, Pep Guardiola. He has featured in all but one of the club’s competitive games this season.

"He is an important player," Guardiola said ahead of Bayern's game at Stuttgart.

"But it can go fast in football. Here today, there tomorrow."

The German international has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, following David Moyes’ visit of Bayern’s game against Moenchengladbach last Friday.

The United manager was spotted in the stands with Sascha Breese, who is responsible for “international contacts” at Kroos’ player agency.

Bayern’s chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has confirmed that current talks are on hold and that money is the main issue for the player's side. Kroos' main agent, Volker Struth, told kicker that Bayern's current contract offer is unacceptable and currently no further negotiations are scheduled.

"I am unable to rule anything out," Kroos told kicker on Monday.

"I am under contract with Bayern Munich. Actually there are yet no further talks (regarding a new contract) scheduled. I will therefore fully focus on the second half of the season.

"There are worse situations in life. I play for a top club, and under a top coach. I am pleased, and sometime in the future a decision will be made."
