Bayern Munich are confident of securing the future of Toni Kroos with a 'substantial' offer they expect will end Manchester United's interest in the midfielder.
Kroos' current contract expires in the summer of 2015 and he has already turned down one offer from the Champions League holders as negotiations continue to stall.
The Germany international is reportedly waiting for an offer that will make him one of the club's top earners, a stance that has frustrated those associated with Bayern including honorary president Franz Beckenbauer who accused the 24-year-old of holding the former club to ransom.
The stand-off has seen United heavily linked with a summer offer for the midfielder, with speculation suggesting they are prepared to meet his wage demands of £225,000 in order to bring him to Old Trafford.
But Bayern's financial director Jan-Christian Dreesen has given the strongest indication yet that the club are willing to make Kroos the lucrative offer he desires that will keep him at the Allianz Arena.
"We are ready to keep on discussing with Toni Kroos and I am hoping to be able to see these talks end successfully," Dreesen was quoted as saying by Bild.
"We are about to put up something substantial in this respect. We really want to appreciate the performance of Toni.
"We are serious and sustainable. At our club you will enjoy success."
Although Bayern manager Pep Guardiola opted to bench Kroos for two recent Bundesliga games recently - inevitably fuelling speculation of a rift with the player - the former Barcelona manager remained adamant the change was for tactical reasons.
The 24-year-old provided a telling reminder of his contribution to a side already closing in on a second consecutive Bundesliga title and deemed favourites for the Champions League with a sublime performance against Arsenal in his side's 2-0 win at the Emirates eight days ago.
