Metro have a claim that Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with keen interest at.
The paper claims that the club are set to offer Toni Kroos a mega deal in order to persuade him to join the club.
The Bayern Munich star has been linked with the club almost constantly since the winter, and we had thought a move could well be in the offing, only for Kroos to remain at the Allianz Arena.
Now however it seems that the player is considering a switch to Old Trafford and will have a fair old incentive to make the switch as well.
One of our punters notes that Manchester United must be offering something special for a player to consider leaving what could well be considered the best club in the world at this current time, and our landlord notes that £250,000 per week is something along those lines.
That would give Kroos a pay rise of around £150,000 – eye watering money for anyone whose name isn’t Wayne Rooney!
United are in dire need of players, and to still be able to attract the big names in football is something that given their season thus far, would be a huge coup for the board and David Moyes.
Kroos seems to be genuinely mulling over the prospect of a move to United this summer. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts below.
