Toni Kroos's agent has dismissed suggestions that the midfielder could be heading to Manchester United before the close of the January transfer window.

The Bayern Munich midfielder, whose contract expires in June 2015, has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this month but Total Sport, the company who manages Kroos, have rubbished talk of a transfer.

"There's nothing in it at all, it is just rumours," a spokesperson told Goal.

"There's nothing to talk about."

Moyes is keen to further bolster United's midfield options after the arrival of Juan Mata for £37.1m on Monday.

Pep Guardiola has admitted that the 24-year-old's future was uncertain, stating: "He is an important player but things can move fast in football. Here today, gone tomorrow."

However, Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists the club want to keep Kroos and will work on a suitable deal to tie him to the club.

"I hope we will reach an agreement with Toni. He is a player that we want to keep in general," said the Bayern chief earlier this week.

“Now we have to see whether we will manage to get a contract that satisfies Toni and Bayern the same way."
