As we mentioned this morning, when Toni Kroos first talked of the Premier League as a “possibility,” it is a surprise that Bayern Munich put the midfielder forward for the press conference ahead of the clash with Arsenal.
After all, it was a given that the English press corps would rush to ask Kroos about a move to Manchester United.
The Premier League champions are understood to have even spoken to representatives of Kroos who is in some dispute with Bayern about the terms of a new deal.
The most likely scenario is that Kroos will stay at Bayern, using Manchester United as a carrot to get the deal he wants from the Bundesliga leaders.
Nevertheless, David Moyes has scouted Kroos extensively of late and there is no doubting the German international would make a big difference to their midfield.
