Toni Kroos transfer latest: Bayern Munich midfielder dismisses Manchester United move as he says 'it is not an issue'
Kroos says he is expecting to play for Bayern Munich next season and is focusing on the World Cup
Friday 23 May 2014
Toni Kroos has no intention of being a Manchester United player next season.
The Bayern Munich midfielder has long been linked with the Old Trafford club, especially as his contract situation with the German champions remains unresolved.
Kroos, 24, has a year left with Bayern and has yet to accept their offer of an extension, giving a nod to a possible move away.
United have been reported as suitors but he claims they are not on his radar.
Speaking to Bild he said: "I am expecting to play for Bayern Munich next season.
"There was a lot of speculation, but Manchester is and was not an issue.
"At this point in time I am fully focused on preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup."
Rumours of a United move for Kroos started to circulate when David Moyes was in charge, although talk has cooled since the appointment of Louis van Gaal.
