Man United to Launch Club Record £40m Bid for Number One Summer Transfer Target

Old Trafford side to offer club record fee for German.

Check in to West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester United

Man United will step-up their pursuit of Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos with the Daily Mail claiming that boss David Moyes is ready to sanction a £40m bid for the midfielder.

24 year old Kroos has been in ongoing contractual talks with his Bavarian employers with the German international said to have demanded as much as treble his current £60k a week salary, so as to have parity with the Allianz Arena side’s top earners.

Man United have wisely stepped in and are said to be happy to offer Kroos a massive £250k a week deal as an incentive to quit the Bundesliga for a move to Old Trafford.

Given the number of central midfield options open to boss Pep Guardiola, who can call upon the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez and Mario Gotze, an offer of this magnitude may be considered by the al conquering German side.

David Moyes is desperate to freshen up a rather brittle midfield and could well be ready to permanently offload loaned out Brazilian Anderson, whilst Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa and wide-midfielders Nani and Ashley Young are all playing for their Man United futures.

Kroos has represented Bayern Munich since the age of 16 and if he feels he is not valued highly enough by the club then he could well be ready to join Man United in the summer.
