Manchester United offer to treble wages of £30m world-class midfield target - report

Manchester United have reportedly offered Toni Kroos a £250,000 a week deal to tempt him away from Bayern Munich, where his contract is expiring, according to the Daily MIrror.

Manchester United have reportedly offered Toni Kroos £250,000 a week to abandon Bayern Munich and move to Old Trafford in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

Kroos' quality is not open to question, and he would still command a £30m fee on top of those exorbitant wages. Whether he is a good fit for United - his best position is undoubtedly as the furthest forward midfielder, where United are pretty well-stocked - is however open to question.

The Mirror reports this could take place as part of a "massive summer spending spree", a line we've been hearing for some time. Guardiola may not be too keen to lose one of his best players, but it's not impossible to imagine that he decides he won't be worth paying that sort of money for if Kroos decides to follow the money.

Would he be an ideal player for United? Certainly not. Do we enjoy signing world-class players after the years of Fergie-aided Glazer austerity? Why, of course....
