Toni Kroos
entering final 12
months of contract
German midfielder wants
vastly improved deal at
Bayern Munich
Manchester United manager
Louis Van Gaal withdraws
interest in Kroos
Kroos said he will definitely
be playing for Bayern next
Toni Kroos could still end up in the
Barclays Premier League after
claims Chelsea are ready to join
the bidding if he becomes a free
agent next year.
A proposed move to Manchester
United may have collapsed, after
new manager Louis Van Gaal
decided against pursuing their
interest, but the Bayern Munich
midfielder remains at loggerheads
with club bosses over renewing a
contract that is entering its final
12 months.
Even an attempt to end conjecture
he may be Old Trafford-bound left
the door open for other clubs to
start drawing up wage offers to try
and tempt him away this time next

‘There has been a lot of
speculation, but I won’t be going
to Manchester United,’ he said. ‘I
can tell you for sure I will be
playing for Bayern Munich next
According to sources in Munich, his
refusal to commit himself to Bayern
beyond the one remaining season
on his current contract has alerted
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho,
who would welcome the chance to
add the 24-year old’s goalscoring
flair from midfield to his attacking
Kroos would be free to talk to
Chelsea representatives at the turn
of the year, and there is little
doubt they could meet wage
demands that have so far
scuppered any prospect of a new
deal being thrashed out at Bayern.

Sportsmail revealed in February
how Bayern bosses were digging
their heels in over Kroos’ bold bid
to more than double his earnings
from just over £60,000 a week to
around £150,000.
Kroos is currently in the middle
band of earners, whose pay ranges
from £50,000 to £80,000 a week,
but feels he should be elevated to
the elite section, where the likes of
Philipp Lahm, Bastian
Schweinsteiger and Franck Ribery
pocket around £150,000.
Bayern are about to add Borussia
Dortmund striker Robert
Lewandowski to their list of top
earners but are determined to
maintain the balance of their pay
scale on current lines and adamant
Kroos cannot move up.
