The Premier League champions have been heavily linked with the Germany international all year, especially after it was revealed that Kroos was currently one of the lowest-paid players in the entire Bayern first-team squad.
And with Kroos’s current deal at the Allianz Arena now set to run out in less than 18 months time, either the 24-year-old agrees to put pen to paper on a contract extension this summer, or the player is sold by the Bundesliga champions.
If it is the latter, it is expected that Kroos would move to the Theatre of Dreams when the summer transfer window does finally reopen for business at the start of July, with Woodward believed to be paying on the table the Red Devils’ contract offer when he meets up with the German’s representatives on Thursday, a proposal that is understood to be worth a whopping £40m.
