Kroos flirting with the Premier League fuels the Manchester United rumours

Bayern Munich sensation Toni Kroos has been linked with a move to Manchester United for quite some time now. It seems that he may be open to the idea, or is he having a game of brinkmanship with his Bayern paymasters?

Ahead of their Champions League last 16 second leg tie with Arsenal, Bayern's Toni Kroos confirmed in a press conference that the Premier League is a possible destination for him, saying: "No decision has been made (about his future)'. It is no secret that the Premier League is a possibility for me."

Of course, it may just be a ploy in his ongoing negotiations with Bayern over a new contract. His manager, Pep Guardiola insists that he plans to keep Kroos for many seasons and will make him a better player. However, if you are a Manchester United fan, you will be excited to hear the Kroos comments.

His brother Felix (pic below), who also plays in the Bundesliga with Werder Bremen and is a self-confessed Manchester United fan, said recently of his brother: "We have already talked about it. Manchester has been the team of my dreams since I was a child. However, I don’t give him any advice. He will take a good decision for himself. There are worse situations than having to decide something like that."

If Bayern were to cash in on their prized German international, you can bet that there will be more than Manchester United scrambling for his signature. Kroos is one of the hottest properties in world football and would enhance the quality of any team.
