One of the biggest summer targets of Manchester United has been Toni Kroos and at some point in time it was even believed that a deal was made involving both clubs but unfortunately for the side of Louis van Gaal, the German midfielder will not be making his way to Old Trafford.
“I am expecting to play for Bayern Munich next season. 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.” Kroos revealed.
The rumors that were linking Kroos with Manchester United surfaced intensely during David Moyes time in charge of Old Trafford but it has been diminished intensely since the appointment and arrival of Louis van Gaal to United as the new coach.
With the conclusion of the Bundesliga, Pep Guardiola reviewed his debut season in charge of Bayern Munich as the Spanish manager considered the campaign to be successful but he went on saying that there still are things left to be done.
“This was a very difficult year for me; my first in Germany, so four titles is good. We have to keep working. There is much work left to do. I still have not managed to form the team according to my vision. It is, after all, my first year.” Guardiola announced.
During Guardiola’s debut season in charge of Bayern Munich he managed on securing the Bundesliga League, German Cup, UEFA Super and FIFA Club World Cup.
