Bayern Munich’s financial director Jan-Christian Dressen has revealed that the club are planning a “substantial” contract offer to keep hold of Manchester United target Toni Kroos.
The German playmaker has emerged as one of the Red Devils’ major targets for the summer, amid reports that a dispute over a new deal at the club could lead to his sale.
Kroos is thought to be demanding a salary more on a par with some of the Bundesliga champions’ more established names after proving himself as a capable first-team player.
But Bayern are rumoured to have baulked at his demands, which has alerted United.
David Moyes is said to be so desperate to add the silky passer to his ranks as he looks to rebuild his squad after a difficult start to his reign, that he is willing to offer him wages of around £250,000-per-week.
But Dressen says that Bayern are planning their own proposal to keep Kroos at the Allianz Arena:
“We are ready to keep on discussing with Toni Kroos and I am hoping to be able to see these talks end successfully,” he is quoted by The Express.
“We are about to put up something substantial in this respect.
“We really want to appreciate the performances of Toni.
“We are serious and sustainable. At our club you will enjoy success.”
