Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has put Manchester United on red alert after admitting the Premier League is "a possibility for me".

Kroos has been heavily linked with the Premier League champions, who have struggled in David Moyes' first season in charge, and have reportedly already made the 24-year-old a contract offer.

Kroos is currently contracted to Bayern until 2015 and, while having a new £6.5 million-a-year offer on the table, it remains unsigned. Rumours are rife that Kroos is unhappy at being paid half that of team-mate Mario Gotze.

While all contract talks are on hold until the summer, Kroos admits he wants to go into the World Cup with his future settled.

"No decision has been made and no agreements have been reached," he said at a press conference ahead of Bayern's Champions League last-16 second leg against Arsenal.

"It will stay like this until the summer, then a decision will be made. It is no secret that the Premier League is an interesting league."

When asked whether he could join a club that will not play in Champions League next season, the Bayern midfielder answered: "A lot is possible."

Shifting attention to Tuesday's match, in which Bayern lead 2-0 on aggregate, Kroos added: "We've won the last 15 or 16 games. Every player wants to win. We're not careless or arrogant. We're dominant."
