Toni Kroos warned over Bayern contract

Published 1 Comments

Toni Kroos has been warned by Franz Beckenbauer ‘not to overplay his hand’ amid continued speculation about the Manchester United target’s future with Bayern Munich.

Kroos is out of contract at the end of next season and is reported to be holding out for a more lucrative offer than the Bundesliga champions have been willing to offer. This had led to inevitable links with a move away from the club.

Bayern maintain they want to keep Kroos at the Allianz Arena beyond the terms of his current deal, although Beckenbauer has suggested the Germany international should not be looking to negotiate such a sizeable pay increase.

“You have to make a decision as a club when someone's demands are going through the roof. There is not a single player who's worth changing your entire wage structure for,” Bayern’s honorary life president told Sky Deutschland.

“Nobody is indispensable. If the player wants to stay at Bayern, I can only advise him not to overplay his hand.”

Manchester United have been mentioned as the most likely suitors of Kroos, with manager David Moyes reported to be ready to offer £25 million to sign the 24-year-old in the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, reports on Monday claim Manchester United would be willing to offer Kroos a significant rise on his current salary, with the Premier League champions prepared to pay £250,000-a-week.
