Hier feiern die Bayern das 1:0 von Toni Kroos (vorne).

Manchester United manager David Moyes has, for a long period of time, been an admirer of the 24-year-old and has watched the midfielder on two separate occasions this season - the most recent example being the 2-0 win over Arsenal in the Champions League with Kroos scoring the opening goal.

The Germany international’s contract is due to expire at the Allianz Arena in the summer of 2015, but the Bavarian club are stalling on agreeing a new deal due to the player’s wage demands which are “through the roof”, according to Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer.

And during the press conference before Bayern's return last-16 tie against Arsenal, Kroos confirmed that if he does leave Bayern then he would consider a move to the Premier League.

"No decision has been made. It is no secret that the Premier League is a possibility for me," said Kroos when probed on his future.

Furthermore, Kroos claimed that he would not rule out a move to a non-Champions League club, reports former footballer-turned-journalist Jan Aage Fjortoft.

Despite the apparent impasse in contract negotiations, Bayern remain committed to keeping the player - a sentiment echoed by manager Pep Guardiola:

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
