Transfer news: Pep Guardiola hints that Bayern Munich could sell Toni Kroos to Manchester United
German international yet to reach new contract agreement with his club
Wednesday 29 January 2014
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola has hinted that he may allow Toni Kroos, a reported target of Manchester United, to leave the club.
The German international midfielder has not yet agreed a new contract with Bayern on a deal that ends in 2015 and it is understood that the club might decide to cash in.
The 24-year-old Kroos is understandably highly sought after having helped Bayern to the treble last season, including winning the Champions League.
Guardiola described Kroos as "an important player, "but it can go fast in football," he said.
"Here today, there tomorrow."
David Moyes watched Bayern's last game against Borussia Moenchengladbach, reportedly to have a better look at Kroos, and he was spotted talking to the player's agent.
Who else might United look to sign this month?
