Bayern Munich are preparing a "substantial" contract offer for Toni Kroos, in a bid to ward off interest from Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.
According to financial director Jan-Christian Dreesen, the Bundesliga club are hopeful that the 24-year-old midfielder will extend his stay at the Allianz Arena, despite the fact negotiations have been ongoing for some time.
"We are ready to keep on discussing with Toni Kroos and I am hoping to be able to see these talks end successfully," he told Sport-BILD.
"We are about to put up something substantial in this respect.
"We really want to appreciate the performances of Toni. We are serious and sustainable. At our club you will enjoy success."
Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing the Germany international to Old Trafford this summer, as he looks to strengthen his squad at the end of 2013/14.
However, it looks as though Manchester United are facing an uphill struggle to convince Kroos to leave Bayern, with a lucrative deal in the offing to extend his stay beyond his current contract which expires in 2015.
Honorary president Franz Beckenbauer recently warned the midfielder not to hold the club to ransom, and it seems that he has taken on the advice and will now recommit his future to Pep Guardiola's side for the foreseeable future.
