The Red Devils have reportedly been keeping close tabs on the brilliant Germany international of late, with head coach David Moyes even spotted in the crowd on Friday night watching Bayern’s league encounter with Borussia Moenchengladbach.

In fact, the Scot was photographed talking to Kroos’s agent, Sascha Breese, sparking rumours that the German was on his way to Old Trafford at the end of the season.

And now Bayern boss Guardiola has done nothing to dampen down those stories, saying that while Kroos was “an important player,” according to ESPN, “but it can go fast in football,” before the Spaniard then added: “Here today, there tomorrow.”

Kroos’s current contract with the Bundesliga and Champions League holders is set to run out in just 18 months’ time in June 2015 and it is understood that Bayern may now decide to cash in on the midfielder at the end of the season, rather than offer the 24-year-old a new deal.
