PHOTO: Does Toni Kroos' 'celebration' against Manchester United reveal his mindset?

Allianz Arena

Toni Kroos was alleged to have told teammates this week he wants to join Manchester United.

Do photos of Toni Kroos after Bayern's win over Manchester United show a player who is disengaged with the club?

While winger Arjen Robben was clearly delirious at the final whistle, and his teammates hugged it out, Kroos stood in the background, reluctant to reveal his emotion.

The Mirror claimed ahead of the second leg that Toni Kroos had even told his Bayern teammates of his plans to move to Old Trafford in the summer.

Their report wrote: "Kroos has told Bayern and Germany team-mates that he is determined to make the switch to Old Trafford."

Ahead of the claim this was vehemently denied by German newspaper BILD, with the player just hours away from featuring against United.

The Red Devils are considered lead contenders for his signature, with just one year remaining on his contract from June, but Bayern are reluctant to sell - at least that's their public position.

David Moyes even stated after the game that the players he has contacted regarding a move are 'keen to come', adding more fuel to the fire regarding Kroos.

It remains of course speculative, but Kroos' reluctance to celebrate crazily like Arjen Robben, illustrates the difference between himself and the Dutchman, who signed a new deal last month.

While not joining in the team hug in front of him, and they not reaching out to him, may also correspond with reports he has told his teammates he wants to quit to move to Old Trafford.

Whichever the truth, you get the feeling it may not to too long until we all find out one way or another.
