Manchester United have opened talks over the possible £40million signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos, following their Champions League exit at the Allianz Arena, according to the Express.

Kroos was part of the Bayern side that helped eliminate David Moyes’ side at the quarter final stage, but United officials stayed in Munich hoping to take advantage of the contract stand off between Kroos and the reigning European champions.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward stayed in Munich to open discussions on a potential £40million move for the German international.

Bayern have indicated they are not willing to sell the 24-year-old, but with Kroos out of contract in 2015, United are confident £40million will be enough to see them get their man.

David Moyes has been given encouragement by the player’s agent, but there is concern at United that Kroos is using their interest to simply negotiate a better deal at Bayern.

“For months we’ve been hearing all kinds of rumours, and we won’t comment on them,” Kroos’ representative Volker Struth told Bild.

“But currently I believe that Toni will stay at Bayern at least until 2015.”
