Transfer Balls: Toni Kroos Snubs Manchester United After Signing For Them

by | 23rd, May 2014

WHAT really happened with the Toni Kroos to Manchester United story?

Today the Sun says that the Bayern Munich star has “snubbed” Manchester United:

So. Kroos turned down United.

Only, the Telegraph says United turned down Kroos:

It all seems very confused.

But at least the Sun quotes the player:

“I expect to play for Bayern Munich next season. There was a lot of speculation, but Manchester is and was not an issue. At this point in time I am fully focused on preparations for the World Cup.”

That’s not a “snub” is it. That’s just a player saying that nothing has changed, that there is no news.

So. How did the Mail come to report Kroos has already singed for United?

The Mail’s story looks a lot like balls. But it’s not alone. On May 21, the Express thundered:

MANCHESTER UNITED have agreed a deal with Bayern Munich for attacker Toni Kroos

One day later, the Mirror was saying Bayern don’t want Kroos.

And then today, the Express added:

TONI KROOS will not be joining Manchester United this summer after Louis Van Gaal pulled the plug on the move.

Such are the facts in the mainstream media.

More Transfer Balls every day…
