Former Germany international Gunter Netzer has warned that Toni Kroos should not "overplay his hand" regarding his contract situation at Bayern Munich.
Negotiations between Kroos and Bayern over an extension on his current deal which expires in June 2015 have been unsuccessful so far.
Manchester United manager David Moyes was also spotted with the midfielder's agent during a scouting trip in January.
"Kroos is playing a risky game at Bayern. The club is determined not to pay huge wages to all their players in order to stay financially healthy," Netzer wrote in his column for Bild.
"We could see this become a situation where Kroos forces Bayern to set an example. He might be overrating himself a bit in a way that his wage demands do not reflect his worth to the team.
"He'd act wisely to have a good look at the squad and re-think his own situation.
"I would advise Toni Kroos not to overplay his hand. He could enjoy a lot of success at Bayern. It's not easy to leave a big club like Bayern. There are a few players that cannot be replaced, but Kroos is not one of them."
