Kroos in no contract rush

Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has confirmed that neither he nor the club are in any rush to agree on a new deal.

The 24-year-old's current contract with the German and European champions runs out in June 2015 and there have been reports that he could be convinced to move to Manchester United in the summer.

Kroos and Bayern have been in negotiations over a fresh deal for a while, but the Bavarian giants are reportedly refusing to meet his wage demands.

However, the midfielder has insisted that he is in no hurry to sign on the dotted line and dismissed suggestions that there is a deadline to the discussions.

"We have focused on signing a new deal for some time," the Germany international told Kicker-Sportmagazin. "However, we did not reach an agreement in January.

"I want to fully focus on the 2014 World Cup. I do not want to discuss contracts during the tournament.

"There is no deadline for my future to be sorted."
