Transfer news: Toni Kroos's agent claims Manchester United have not made a bid and midfielder will stay at Bayern Munich until 'at least' 2015

German midfielder has been constantly linked with the Premier League champions

Toni Kroos's agent has claimed that his client has not been offered a contract from Manchester United, after reports that the club offered the Bayern Munich midfielder a deal worth only £26,000 per week.

The German international's contract at the Allianz Arena expires in June 2015,  but his representative, Volker Struth, says that the Premier League side have not made an "official" bid, and that the 24-year-old will see out his contract with the Bundesliga champions, at the very least.

"There has not been any official contract offer [from Manchester United]," Struth told Bild

"And there is absolutely no need to table an official bid either because Toni will stay with Bayern Munich at least until 2015."


Kroos, however, has still not committed to a longer deal with Bayern, and could sign a pre-contract with another club next January.
