Toni Kroos has revealed that he is happy to keep Bayern Munich waiting until after the World Cup to discuss a new contract.

Bayern Munich have been understandably keen to tie the 24-year-old down to a new long-term deal. Kroos is currently in the form of his life in Bavaria but his current deal expires after the 2014/15 season.

His form, coupled with an expiring contract has alerted Manchester United manager David Moyes, who is reportedly ready to offer Kroos £250,000-a-week to swap the Allianz Arena for Old Trafford.

Kroos has been negotiating a new deal with Bayern for a while with the two parties at a standoff between the player's wage demands.

Now Kroos says he is ready to ditch Bayern Munich contract talks until after this summer's World Cup, insisting he is in no rush to sort out his future.

"We have focused on signing a new deal for some time," the Germany international told Kicker-Sportmagazin. "However, we did not reach an agreement in January.

"I want to fully focus on the 2014 World Cup. I do not want to discuss contracts during the tournament.

"There is no deadline for my future to be sorted."

The longer a new contract goes unsigned, the better for Manchester United. if Kroos is allowed to enter the last 12 months of his contract, Bayern may be forced to sell or risk losing him for free in the summer of 2015 or for a nominal fee in the January transfer window.
