Manchester United have been handed some small hope in their reported interest in pulling off a deal to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos.
The 24-year-old has entered the final 18 months of his contract but negotiations to extend his stay at the Allianz Arena have so far been fruitless, with Bayern refusing to match his salary demands.
Although Kroos would have long been recognised as one of Europe's more unattainable targets, these developments have seen the Premier League champions linked with audacious move for the Germany international.
Kroos has already turned down one offer of a new deal from the Bavarian giants and his latest comments on his future will encourage Moyes and any other suitors to keep a keen eye on developments over the next year and a half.
"I am unable to rule anything out," Kroos told kicker-Sportmagazin.
"I am under contract with Bayern Munich. Actually there are yet no further talks (regarding a new contract) scheduled. I will therefore fully focus on the second half of the season.
"There are worse situations in life. I play for a top club, and under a top coach. I am pleased, and sometime in the future a decision will be made."
Speculation that Moyes may be monitoring Kroos was intensified when the United manager was spotted in attendance as Borussia Monchengladbach took on Bayern Munich in a league game last Friday.
The midfielder has been ever-present in Pep Guardiola's side this season, appearing in all 17 of the club's Bundesliga games having been an established presence alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield since 2010.
Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed last week that the standoff between the Champions League holders and the player is based on money. Reports in the German press have suggested Kroos is keen to secure a deal worth €8m a year, double of what he currently collects.
