Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has revealed that he is yet to reopen contract talks with the reigning European champions after turning down their most recent offer, telling Kicker-Sportmagazin that he is no rush to make a decision over his future amid reported interest from Manchester United.
Kroos has 18 months left on his current contract at the Allianz Arena, with United believed to be monitoring the situation closely after Red Devils boss David Moyes watched the German international playmaker in action last Friday.
Moyes made a personal check on Kroos with the 24-year-old's representative as Bayern beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0 to fuel speculation over a summer move, with the playmaker doing little to dampen speculation by admitting that he wants to keep his options open for now.
The Bayern midfielder is reported by Sky Sports News as telling Kicker-Sportmagazin: "I am unable to rule anything out.
"I am under contract with Bayern Munich (until June 2015). Actually there are yet no further talks scheduled. I will therefore fully focus on the second half of the season.
"There are worse situations in life. I play for a top club, and under a top coach. I am pleased, and sometime in the future a decision will be made."
Bayern manager Pep Guardiola is blessed with a plethora of options in central midfield, including the likes of Thiago Alcantara, Mario Gotze, Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Both Kroos and Bayern are in no rush to agree terms, which means United have a strong chance to add another midfielder to Moyes' rebuilding project at Old Trafford during the close season.
