Manchester United have been given the biggest indication yet that all is not well with Toni Kroos at Bayern Munich. Yesterday, Bayern Munich were away against struggling Stuttgart and after 29 minutes the un-fancied hosts had taken the lead.
Toni Kroos was having a particularly poor game, was booked and after 60 minutes (when the score was 1-0 to Stuttgart), Guardiola made the decision to take off Toni Kroos for Claudio Pizarro - a decision Kroos wasn't too happy about.
After the match, Pep Guardiola gave a rather ominous outlook on Kroos's future at the club: "He is an important player but things can move fast in football. Here today, gone tomorrow."
Behind the Kroos disturbance at Bayern Munich is a contract renewal which seems to be dragging on. Kroos's contract is expiring in June 2015 and Bayern are desperate to get him to sign a new deal. However, Kroos feels he has been undervalued by the club since his injury towards the tail-end of last season.
Of all the players whose contracts were due to expire in 2015: David Alaba, Jerome Boateng and Rafinha, only Kroos and Arjen Robben remain - and Robben is set to sign anytime from now.
With Kroos wanting double on his existing deal, it appears this may drag on for a long time; time Bayern do not have.
