The Germany midfielder is wanted by Manchester United and Red Devils boss David Moyes personally watched the 24-year-old in action in Bayern’s 2-0 Champions League last-16 first leg win over Arsenal last month.

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,” Kroos, who scored Bayern’s first goal in the win at the Emirates Stadium, is quoted as saying by

“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.”
