Manchester United target Toni Kroos has been warned by Franz Beckenbauer not to try and hold his current club Bayern Munich to ransom after reports linking him to the Premiership club.
Reports in the British media yesterday suggested that United were willing to triple the 24-year-olds current salary which would see him earn a whopping £250,000 per week.
Kroos’s current contract with Bayern runs until June of 2015, but with United willing to pay the German giants £30 million and him wanting to leave they would probably have to take the deal and let him leave or risk raising his salary which would have other stars at the club looking for better deals also.
Speaking to Sky Sports Beckenbauer said: “He shouldn’t raise the stakes too high.
“Bayern will make an effort to keep him, but when the demands are too high, a decision will be made.
“There is no player who you have to give everything to keep. Everyone is replaceable.”
Bayern’s director of sport Matthias Sammer says that his club would very much like to see Kroos as part of Bayern’s future.
“We know that he is a very good player and we want to continue with Kroos,” said Sammer. “Everyone at the club sees it that way.”
