David Moyes is ready to hit Bayern Munich with a bid for contract rebel Toni Kroos after it emerged the Germany midfielder’s wage demand is only half the amount that has been offered to Wayne Rooney.

After being watched by Moyes at Borussia Moenchengladbach last Friday night, Kroos admitted there were no plans for further talks on renewing a contract that runs out at the end of next season and he was in the dark over his future.

It was thought he was looking for a pay rise that might cause unrest in the Bayern dressing room after chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted talks were deadlocked and ruefully added that it was ‘always about money in these negotiations.’
