Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos has spoken on the speculation surrounding his future.
Toni Kroos has finally spoken out of the speculation surrounding his future and it’s not good news as far as Manchester United fans are concerned.
The Bayern Munich midfielder took to Facebook to reveal he’s happy at the German and European giants and while he confirmed he hasn’t reached a contract agreement with Bayern, he doesn’t see it as a major issue.
“Hey guys, in the last few days much has been written - speculation about my future in sports. But you should not believe what is written. The fact is that I am very happy to play at Bayern,” he said.
“The fact is also that we could not agree on a new contract. However, since this runs until 2015, is also not a big problem and we will see what the future brings.”
Stories were flying around last month that David Moyes was trying to sign the 24-year-old as his second major midfield addition in January following the arrival of Juan Mata from Chelsea.
A £25 million fee was raised in reports, something that United could afford and a fee which also linked other clubs such as Chelsea and Arsenal with potential moves for the midfielder.
So where does the situation go now?
Kroos’ comments suggest that he’s not majorly concerned about contract talks, probably expecting negotiations to pick up again at some point before the end of the season or after the World Cup in the summer.
It would be surprising if Bayern boss Pep Guardiola decided to kick Kroos out of the exit door because he’s been an integral part of a successful side over the last couple of seasons, helping Bayern to a Bundesliga and Champions League title last year.
He’s effectively told it like it is; the newspaper gossip is speculation and a failure to agree a new contract beyond 2015 doesn’t mean he’s instantly going to leave.
