Franz Beckenbauer has warned Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos not to hold the club to ransom following reports linking him with a big-money move to Manchester United.

Reports in the British media on Monday morning suggested United are prepared to pay the Germany international £250,000 a week if he moves to Old Trafford.

Kroos would treble his wages if he moved to United, who would reportedly be prepared to pay the German giants £30m for his services.

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."
