Man Utd to persuade Kroos with lucrative contract
Manchester United will be prepared to offer midfield target Toni Kroos a weekly wage of £250,000 to tempt him to leave European champions Bayern Munich for Old Trafford in the summer, according to the Metro.
David Moyes’ side have made signing a central midfielder their priority in the close-season, and Kroos is believed to be high on their list of targets. Their chances of a deal have already been boosted by the Germany international’s decision to reject a new contract at Bayern, with whom he is involved in a row over wages.
Bayern would reportedly be willing to allow Kroos to leave at the end of the season if a contract extension is not agreed, although they would be looking for a transfer fee of over £20m from any potential suitors to force them into a sale.
Kroos’ contract dispute has convinced Moyes to set his sights on a player who is likely to play a major role for Germany at this summer’s World Cup, and Man Utd will try to persuade him to move by offering £150,000 more per week than what he currently earns.
For Bayern, he has made 36 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring two goals; one of them coming in the recent Champions League victory over Arsenal.
