Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has been linked to English soccer super power Manchester United. Various reports in the British media on Monday morning said that Man United were prepared to pay Munich £30 million for Kroos. They would then pay Kroos £250,000 a week for his services.
Bayern’s honorary president Franz Beckenbauer warned Kroos not to try hold the club ransom and stated that everyone is replaceable.
“He shouldn’t raise the stakes too high,” Beckenbauer told Sky Sports. “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 said the club would prefer to keep Kroos.
“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.”
