Kroos, 24, has hinted he would be interested in a move to the Premier League in the summer, as contract talks with the Bavarian giants continue to stall.
Bayern’s director of sport Matthias Sammer has said they want to keep Kroos, but club legend Beckenbauer says the Germany midfielder is replaceable and has warned Kroos he should try to force the hand of the Champions League holders.
“He shouldn’t raise the stakes too high. There is no player who you have to give everything to keep,” the Kaiser is quoted as saying by Goal.com.
“Everyone is replaceable.”
Kroos has a Bayern contract until June 2015 but extension talks have faltered amidst reports he wants to boost his salary to become one of the European champions’ top earners.
“There is nothing much new and there is still no decision,” said Kroos.
“Things will remain that way for a while, but it’s no secret that the Premier League is not a bad league to play in.”
Last month, British media reports claimed United are prepared to offer him £250,000 per week to move to Old Trafford in the summer.
The Germany international currently earns a reported four million euros per year, or £80,000 per week, at Bayern.
“I’m the sort of person for whom everything is possible,” Kroos added.
“The fact that I’ll eventually need to give it some thought is also clear.
“Then I’ll have to make a decision and weigh everything up.”
