When Manchester United played Norwich this weekend, Sir Alex Ferguson was sat next to a man who looked similar to Sascha Breese, a member of Sports Total who are Toni Kroos’ representatives.
David Moyes had already met Breese on a trip to Germany so this would have been the second time Breese met with Manchester United officials in the space of a few months.
As you can expect, Twitter was alive and the pictures quickly went viral. Kroos’ representative? At Old Trafford? Talking to Ferguson? Kroos moving to Manchester United was a given, surely.
However, a representative of Sports Total confirmed to the Manchester Evening News that no member of the agency was at Old Trafford on Saturday. Talk about bursting the bubble.
Of course, this doesn’t change the fact that Manchester United are still almost certainly going to pursue Kroos this summer, especially if Louis van Gaal does indeed become our new manager as the Dutchman helped Kroos break through into the first team at Bayern Munich.
