But regardless of that it seems as though Kroos plans on a Bayern stay.
Last week, in quotes published by Sport 1, his agent Volker Struth said:
“There is no official contract offer presented. Lastly, there is no need to submit an official offer; because Toni Kroos will play at Bayern at least until 2015.”
Meanwhile yesterday Kroos said he gave high value to the advice of his former Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes - who had told him to stay at the Allianz Arena.
But the rumours are still flying around - and one popular German journalist made a quip to Toni about the rumours yesterday.
Jan Age Fjortoft is the Norwegian journalist who broke the Mesut Ozil transfer news. A good Twitter friend of Manchester United pair Phil and Gary Neville he posted this Tweet last night - shortly after interviewing the German international…

No interview was done with MUTV - as you can probably imagine.
