Toni Kroos

Manchester United are willing to make £30m-rated Toni Kroos a massive £225,000-a-week contract offer in order to bring him to Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mirror, a sizeable increment from the amount he is currently earning at Bayern Munich.

The midfielder, who scored a goal and put in a world class performance against Arsenal in the first round of the Champions League at the Emirates, has had a fallout with the current management over his contract, which expires in 2015.

The midfielder is not happy with the terms that Bayern are willing to negotiate on and his displeasure has prompted other clubs to move into the mix.

United, who are in desperate need of a holding midfielder come the summer, are frontrunners in their pursuit of Kroos who they believe will fit seamlessly into their style of play.

Kroos is likely to come in as a successor for Michael Carrick, who has entered his thirties and his performances in recent weeks has flattered to deceive.

Moyes is likely to have plenty to spend in the summer, with the owners backing the new manager to build his own squad. However, Kroos' arrival is likely to depend on United's ability to finish in the top four, which looks unlikely given they are currently 11 points behind Liverpool, who are top.

Nevertheless, Moyes has managed to figure out an alternative route to European qualification by stating that his team are capable of lasting the distance in the race for the Champions League title. The Red Devils face Olympiacos in the round of 16, which will take them into the quarters.

"Everybody wants to win it and we'll try to do it. I never said we would or we can but we'll be in there. Teams don't want to play Manchester United. They know what it stands for as they have been successful. I hope we can play well enough to get through this round and see what happens next," Moyes told United's Official Website.

"They are really good and have had a great record. They are undoubtedly the best team in Greece, no question about it. They also have a lot of Greek internationals who will go to the World Cup and it will be a really tough game," he concluded.
