Kroos ‘in contact with van Gaal’

According to reports, Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has spoken to new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal over a possible move to Old Trafford, writes the Metro.

Toni Kroos

Towards the end of May, it was rumoured that van Gaal had decided to end his new club’s interest in Kroos, which had begun while David Moyes was in charge. However, the Dutchman is thought to still retain an interest in the 24-year-old, who scored four goals in 51 appearances last season in all competitions.

Talks over a new contract with Bayern Munich have dragged on, with Kroos looking to earn similar wages to stars such as Franck Ribery, Mario Gotze and new signing Robert Lewandowski. He still has one year remaining on his current deal, and despite Bayern being unwilling to sell, they would prefer a sale now rather than see him leave for nothing at the end of next season.

Kroos has insisted that he will be at Bayern next season, but Man Utd would be ready to step in should he become available, along with another interested party, European champions Real Madrid. The Red Devils will be boosted, however, by the contact between Kroos and current Dutch national team coach van Gaal.
