‘Do an interview with MUTV’ - United target Kroos in cheeky joke with journalist

Toni Kroos Germany National Team

Jan Age Fjortoft asked Toni Kroos to do an interview with the Manchester United TV channel yesterday.

Since the turn of the year Manchester United have been heavily linked with a summer move for Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos - starting when David Moyes was spotted taking in a Bayern match in January - sitting alongside the German international’s agent.

But regardless of that it seems as though Kroos plans on a Bayern stay.

Last week, in quotes published by Sport 1, his agent Volker Struth said:

“There is no official contract offer presented. Lastly, there is no need to submit an official offer; because Toni Kroos will play at Bayern at least until 2015.”

Meanwhile yesterday Kroos said he gave high value to the advice of his former Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes - who had told him to stay at the Allianz Arena.

But the rumours are still flying around - and one popular German journalist made a quip to Toni about the rumours yesterday.

Jan Age Fjortoft is the Norwegian journalist who broke the Mesut Ozil transfer news. A good Twitter friend of Manchester United pair Phil and Gary Neville he posted this Tweet last night - shortly after interviewing the German international…

No interview was done with MUTV - as you can probably imagine.
