No Kroos for United, Bayern insist


TONI-KROOSLONDON, England, April 1- Bayern Munich have rubbished suggestions that midfielder Toni Kroos could leave the club in the off-season.

Kroos is believed to be at the top on Manchester United’s shopping list, and the Germany international has admitted a fondness for the Premier League. However, Bayern appear to have no intention of letting the 24-year-old depart the Allianz Arena.

“Toni has one year more of a contract and Toni will remain,” said manager Pep Guardiola.

“I hope he can extend his contract and stay with us because he is a very good guy, he loves his game, it is not just a job for him and I would like him to stay.

“I spoke with the player, with the club, I gave my opinion. After that I am not manager, I am just the trainer.”

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge echoed his manager’s sentiments.

“Toni Kroos is sure to play in a Bayern Munich shirt next year as well,” Rummenigge told reporters.
