Toni Kroos has told Bayern Munich he wants a new contract worth £125,00-a-week, reports Sport Bild.
The German international put in a stellar man of the match performance against Arsenal earlier this week, scoring the opening goal in front of the Manchester United manager.
David Moyes was spotted in the stands at the Emirates and was believed to be scouting Kroos with a view to a summer transfer bid.
Manchester United officials are tracking the situation with Kroos at the Allianz Arena, as his contract expires in under 18 months time and an agreement of an extension still looks a long way off.
The reason for the failure to find an agreement is Kroos' demands, reported to be a massive £6.5m-a-year; £125,000-a-week.
Kroos is playing more and more of a prominent role in Pep Guardiola's squad and believes his fine performances warrant the pay rise.
Bayern will continue to try and drive the price down but in the meantime Manchester United remain hopeful that Kroos will attempt to force a move in the summer if his demands are not met.
If a new contract remains unsigned in the summer, Ed Woodward will test Bayern's resolve by offering £25m in exchange for Kroos.
With Manchester United preparing a big summer of spending, it is unlikely Kroos' contract demands will faze Moyes or Woodward.
