Borussia Monchengladbach duo Max Kruse and Patrick Herrmann have both been linked with a move to Manchester United in January as David Moyes is expected to watch them in action against Bayern Munich on Friday.
Monchengladbach’s Sporting director Max Eberl told Bild that the club have no plans to sell anyone at the moment and both players have also poured cold water on any potential moves to Old Trafford in the winter transfer window.
Kruse, a 25-year-old striker at Gladbach, spoke to Bild about the rumours this week and quashed any possibility of a move to United.
“Manchester? I don’t think that’ll be an issue any time soon,” he said.
“It’s always a compliment when you get the interest of another club but I’m perfectly happy in Gladbach.”
“It, of course, honours me to be linked to such a club,” Herrmann said.
“But a winter transfer is absolutely no issue for me. I feel fine here at Borussia, we are playing an outstanding season.”
However, Hermann refused to rule out a move away from Monchendgladbach in the future.
He added: “You should never say never. But the Bundesliga is one of the strongest leagues in the world.”
Moyes has always insisted he wants young, exciting players to build his United of the future upon. In that respect, Herrmann would certainly tick that box and the fact he has left the door open for a summer move is encouraging.
