Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has claimed that he has made a decision on his future plans and will reveal them after the World Cup.

The German midfielder, who has been in the middle of a transfer wrangle among Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid, now seems to have decided where his future lies for the upcoming season.

Kroos has only one year remaining on his Bayern contract and has refused an offer of an extension. However, he was happy to stay on and see out his final year.

The Red Devils and the Blues who have been pursuing him during the summer were thought to be readying lucrative offers to lure the midfielder from the Bundesliga to the Premier League.

Real have also been very keen to bring the midfielder to the Spanish capital all through the summer. If Spanish reports are to be believed, the European champions have trumped the Premier league clubs to land the Germany international's signature.

The Bayern Munich midfielder has now come out and confirmed that he has made a decision and it will be revealed after the World Cup in a week's time.

"I have made my decision. First I want to play the World Cup. Once it's over, I'll make my decision public. There's still a week left to go," Kroos said, as quoted in the Express.

The 24-year-old midfielder has been a permanent fixture in Joachim Low's German team at the World Cup, but was not a consistent member in Pep Guardiola's Bayern starting XI during the previous campaign.

It is also claimed that the former Barcelona manager is tired of the ongoing saga and has asked the matter to be resolved quickly, and he is also open to the idea of the midfielder being sold to another club.

Meanwhile, Germany legend Lothar Matthaus is convinced that it is Real who have won the battle for Kroos' signature and also feels that he will be a perfect fit for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit. He feels the midfielder's intelligence on the field will bring out the best in Real's star men Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Congratulations to Real Madrid, they've got themselves a genius there. Toni is very intelligent, he passes the ball brilliantly and he can shoot hard and well," Matthaus told Marca.

"Ronaldo and Bale can really expand alongside him," the German World Cup winning star added.
