Toni Kroos has said that he'll not be rushing into talks over a new contract with Bayern Munich and instead will wait for the club to make the first move.
Kroos is a highly valued talent in Europe and had been linked to both Manchester clubs during the transfer market and with Pep Guardiola preferring a rotational system, some have said that it could mean Kroos doesn't feature in Guardiola's long-term plans.
Kroos has previously dismissed these assumptions stating: "It's pretty usual to not start every match. We have to use a rotation scheme."
Yet today Kroos told German newspaper, Bild that: "I am under contract but I am able to imagine doing a lot of things."
This has only furthered speculation that the German playmaker doesn't see himself with European champions much longer.
He added that "The best (thing) to do actually is to be patient, since I am aware that German players have very much gone up in the estimation of foreign clubs."
After Manchester United's chase for a playmaker during the last transfer window, the news that Kroos is thinking of moving would be music to the ears of David Moyes, as well as a host of other European clubs.
The 23-year-old is just one of a very strong contingent of young German players who are eyeing World Cup glory in 2014. It could very well be that after the arrival of Mesut Ozil at the Emirates, his fellow countrymen may follow to play in the Premier League.
