Former treble-winning Bayern Munich boss, Jupp Heynckes, has told Toni Kroos to ignore any offers from Manchester United or Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Heynckes has revealed he keeps in regular contact with some of his former players and says he has urged Kroos to sign a new deal with the German champions.
David Moyes is reportedly keen to bring Kroos to Old Trafford, with United willingly to spend £40m for the player who will be out of contract in 2015.
"I spoke with Toni. If he takes my words seriously, he will stay. A team like Bayern are not currently available in Europe,” Heynckes said.
"He would be well advised to extend. At present he has a good offer from Bayern. Toni knows also. I hope that his advisor also knows."
Kroos’ agent, Volker Struth, claimed earlier this week that the player is likely to remain at Bayern.
“We are confronted with a variety of rumours for months but at the moment I believe that Toni plays in Bavaria until 2015 at least,” he told German newspaper Bild.
Former footballer turned journalist, Jan Aage Fjortoft, has revealed that Kroos will not be extending his contract at the Allianz Arena, but will only leave them on a free transfer in 2015.
Fjortoft tweeted yesterday: “Kroos – won’t extend his contract – nothing happens before World Cup – most likely at Bayern till 2015 – then FREE.
“Bayern want him to stay of course. But the parties ‘don’t agree on value…’”
Would it make sense for Bayern to keep such a talented player for one more year and then let him leave on a free transfer? Have your say in the comment section below.
