Bayern Munich have once again moved to clarify their position with regards to Toni Kroos, with sporting director Matthias Sammer ruling out the proposed sale of the Manchester United target in the summer transfer window.
Kroos is out of contract at the end of next season and his future the subject of constant speculation given that he is reported to be holding out for a more lucrative deal than Bayern are prepared to offer.
Bayern, though, remain determined to commit the Germany international to an extended contract and, even if Kroos decides against signing a new deal, he will not leave the Allianz Arena until the expiration of his current terms.
“Toni has a contract until the summer of 2015 and he will not be going anywhere before then,” Sammer told Bild.
“We are determined to make sure he will stay at Bayern beyond the expiry date of his current deal. We really value Toni and have shown so more than once.”
Kroos has frequently been mentioned as a target for Manchester United, with manager David Moyes credited with a number of personal scouting trips to watch the 24-year-old in action for Bayern.
