Manchester United transfer target Toni Kroos has invited potential transfer offers by admitting that a Premier League move is 'a possibility'.

The Bayern Munich star was speaking to the press before his club's Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Arsenal at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night.

And he seemed to court his suitors in the Premier League by suggesting a transfer could be on the cards - Manchester United have been heavily linked with the Germany midfielder in recent weeks.

"No decision has been made [about my future]," said Kroos. "It is no secret that the Premier League is a possibility for me."

Reports have claimed United are willing to offer the 24-year-old a wage packet worth up to £250,000-a-week to tempt him to Old Trafford.

With competition for places fierce in the Bayern Munich midfield, Kroos is clearly contemplating his options ahead of a big summer with Germany at the World Cup.

United have a desperate need for more quality in central midfield, and Kroos would be a top tier target for the club.

However, in the same press conference Bayern boss Pep Guardiola made it clear he is not considering letting Kroos go - which suggests United may have to make a massive offer to get Bayern to the negotiating table.

"I have told him [Kroos] I can make him an even better player," Guardiola said. "I hope I will have him many seasons."

Kroos is yet to sign a new contract with Bayern Munich, and his brother, Felix Kroos, revealed earlier this month that Toni is weighing up his options.
