Kroos Expects Bayern Stay

Kroos Expects Bayern Stay

German international and Bundesliga star, Toni Kroos, expects to stay at Bayern Munich despite his contract situation. Heavily linked with a move to Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United, the 24-year old is fully focused on Pep Guardiola’s team and is hopeful of resolving the contract issues after the 2014 World Cup.

“I am expecting to play for Bayern Munich next season,” said Kroos in a statement to BILD.

“There was a lot of speculation, but Manchester is and was not an issue.

“At this point in time I am fully focused on preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

“I know that I have to accept and respect the recent statements of the authorities at Bayern Munich.

“Still, honestly, I did not expect anything else in that respect after I had turned down the offer of a new contract I received from the club at the start of the current calendar year.”

United are reported to have turned their attentions away from the number 39, but will surely bolster their midfield; a glaring weakness from last season.
