Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has ruled out the possibility of Premier League target Toni Kroos leaving the Allianz Arena.
The Germany international, who starred against Arsenal in the Champions League and was the subject of a scouting trip by Manchester United boss David Moyes in January, has reportedly become unsettled after talks over a new deal stalled.
Kroos' current contract is due to expire in 2015 but Sammer is adamant the playmaker will see out the remainder of his deal and is still hoping to persuade the 24-year-old to sign an extension.
“Toni has a contract until the summer of 2015 and he will not be going anywhere before then,” the Roten sporting director told Bild.
“We are determined to make sure he will stay at Bayern beyond the expiry date of his current deal. We really value Toni and have shown so more than once.”
Former Bayern player and honorary president Franz Beckenbauer, however, showed less desire to for Kroos to remain in Munich, and insisted the Bundesliga leaders should not be held to ransom over the midfielder's contract demands.
“You have to make a decision as a club when someone's demands are going through the roof. There is not a single player who's worth changing your entire wage structure for,” Beckenbauer told Sky.
“Nobody is indispensable. If the player wants to stay at Bayern, I can only advise him not to overplay his hand.”
