Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has told his teammates that he is desperate to make the move to Old Trafford in the summer, according to the Mirror.
The midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United, with David Moyes willing to pay up to £40m for his signature.
Kroos is yet to renew the contract with the Bavarians, which expires in 2015. He is willing to make a move to the Premier League to take a massive jump in salary, which is expected to be in the range of £200,000 a week.
The German international showed his pedigree in the Champion League where he scored a screamer against Arsenal at the Emirates and controlled the game in midfield in the first leg of their quarter-final tie against United.
Signing Kroos will be a major show of intent from Moyes, who has been blasted from all corners this season owing to his inability to reach expectations after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The 24-year-old is reportedly frustrated with playing second fiddle to Bastian Schweinstieger and is looking for a move out of the club.
His availability is likely to attract bids from a lot of clubs in the summer and with United set to miss out on Champions League football next season, it will be a difficult task for the Red Devils to attract Kroos ahead of their rivals in Europe.
The German is likely to come in as replacement for Michael Carrick, who is entering his mid thirties and is unlikely to last the distance next season.
Moyes also has to reconstruct their defence with Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra set to leave the club this summer. The former Everton manager is in the market for a pair of fullbacks and a new set of central defenders, with Rio Ferdinand unlikely to stretch his career beyond the summer.
