Toni Kroos: Suffered a groin injury early in Bayern's win over Juventus

The Germany international suffered the problem early in Bayern's 2-0 victory in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie with Juventus at the Allianz Arena.

Kroos was taken off after just 16 minutes, with Arjen Robben replacing him for the remainder of Tuesday night's clash.

Bayern's team doctor, Hans-Wilhelm Mueller Wohlfahrt, has revealed the 23-year-old will be out of action for "six to eight weeks".

The Bundesliga giants, who are bidding to become the first German side to win the league, Champions League and cup treble, are 20 points clear at the top of the table.

Coach Jupp Heynckes said of Kroos' injury: "It's very disappointing for him and for all of us.

"A lot will be decided in the next two months and his injury will take a long time."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
