Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos has been warned by Franz Beckenbauer not to hold the club to ransom following reports of Manchester United interest. The midfielder's contract ends in June next year but Bayern have as yet been unable to agree a new deal with the 24-year-old.
Bayern's honorary president Beckenbauer told Sky Germany: "He shouldn't raise the stakes too high.
"Bayern will make an effort to keep him, but when the demands are too high, a decision will be made.
"There is no player who you have to give everything to keep. Everyone is replaceable."
Bayern's director of sport Matthias Sammer says the European champions are keen to keep the attacking midfielder.
"We know that he is a very good player and we want to continue with Kroos," said Sammer. "Everyone at the club sees it that way."
