Bayern Munich warn Man Utd target Kroos they won't up contract offer

Bayern Munich president Karl Hopfner says they're unlikely to up their contract offer to Toni Kroos. Kroos, 24, is a long term target of Manchester United and today it was confirmed that the two clubs had agreed a £20million deal.

Hopfner was asked about Kroos' future with Bayern Munich and he told Kicker : "It was the same with Michael Ballack, and eventually we retracted our offer (to extend his contract). Kroos has a contract until 2015.

"There will definitely be further talks. At some point, the player has to decide what he wants. I'll be taking a leaf out of Uli's book certainly: certain financial boundaries will not be crossed."

When asked to talk about how Kroos' offer won't increase Hopfner said: "That is how things stand. No question," but when asked whether a big offer could change their stance Hopfner replied: "I don't know. Things change very quickly."
