Real Madrid man moves quickly to dampen Man Utd transfer talk

Real Madrid kingpin Toni Kroos has reportedly put an end to the speculation suggesting he wants to leave the Bernabeu.

With his World Cup done and dusted with Germany, the midfielder has moved quickly to reassure Real that he has no designs on leaving the European champions.

According to Spanish news outlet Don Balon last month, Jose Mourinho was willing to pay £70m to bring Kroos to Old Trafford this summer.

AS also later claimed Mourinho had targeted the 28-year-old Kroos and the Premier League club were willing to make him a lucrative offer.

Now though Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo reports that Kroos has no intention of leaving Real Madrid for Manchester United.

The report claims Kroos has spoken to his club and agent and made them aware he’s not interested in a move.

Kroos, who signed for Real in July 2014 for a fee of around €25m, initially signed a six-year deal and in 2016 he extended that until 2022 and he is intent on seeing out that contract.

The same report also claimed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola considered the possibility of signing Kroos and in April the Daily Mirror claimed Mourinho had beaten Guardiola to the signing of the midfield metronome.
