United have been heavily linked with the Bayern Munich midfielder even before the two teams played each other in the Champions League back at the start of April. Despite having to fight for a place with Thiago, Robben, Ribery, Shaqiri, Javi Martinez and Schweinsteiger, The 24-year-old actually made more appearances in the league for Bayern than the rest, as the Bavarians dominated the Bundesliga. It’s not just Pep Guardiola who is a fan of the midfielder. Joachim Löw has picked Kroos for all 3 of Germany’s World Cup fixtures so far, as the nation topped Group G, titled the group of death.
The 24-year-old’s current deal at the Allianz Arena expires at the end of next season, meaning this is Bayern’s only chance to receive a transfer fee for the midfielder should Kroos look to leave the Bundesliga champions. Bayern want the midfielder to extend his deal, but have refused to exceed financial boundaries in order to keep the midfielder. With United ready to pounce, could they be adding one of Germany’s best midfielders to their squad?
