Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos insists he is happy with the club's rotation policy - and hopes to sign a new contract in the near future.
The 23-year-old midfielder has two years to run on his current deal at the Allianz Arena.
Kroos has seen the competition for places in the starting 11 at Bayern heat up with the addition of Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund and Thiago Alcantara from Barcelona. He is seen as a more defensive midfield player by new boss Pep Guardiola and this could potentially unsettle the playmaker.
Kroos was the starting playmaker under Jupp Heynckes, playing just behind the main striker, but now the 23-year-old is playing deeper in a holding midfield position. Kroos understands that starting in every game is not likely and has no problems with the rotation that is likely to take place.
The German starlet was quoted on Sky Sports during his interview with kicker-Sportmagazin. He said: "It's pretty usual not to start every match. We have to use a rotation scheme."
Kroos continued: "I have two years left on my contract and if the club wants to keep me, they have to get in touch with me about that. It's not me getting in touch with them. Everyone who knows football is aware that two years is no lifetime in football."
The German starlet is clearly open to staying at the Allianz Arena but he must feel wanted by the club in order to do so. It would be quite interesting to see how this develops if another club comes in with a serious offer for the playmaker.
