Transfer news: Pep Guardiola admits Manchester United target Toni Kroos could leave Bayern Munich
German midfielder could be in line for Old Trafford switch
Thursday 30 January 2014
Pep Guardiola has admitted that Toni Kroos, a reported target of Manchester United, could leave Bayern Munich this January.
Kroos reacted petulantly when he was substituted last night during Bayern's 2-1 win over Stuttgart, prompting many to speculate that he is on the way out at the club.
According to reports, David Moyes is willing to spend £25m to bring the German international to Old Trafford.
Speaking about the possibility of Kroos' exit, Guardiola said: "He is an important player but things can move fast in football.
"Here today, gone tomorrow."
Kroos threw his gloves angrily to the ground after being substituted in the 60th minute last night and speculation that he is unhappy at not being offered an improved contract have fuelled talk of a switch to Old Trafford.
Moyes watched Bayern in action last Friday against Borussia Monchengladbach with Kroos thought to have been the player under consideration.
Who else might Man United sign this week?
