Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos is prepared to sign a new contract with the German champions and reject Manchester United's interest despite David Moyes making a personal scouting mission to watch the 24 year old gun down Arsenal in the Champions League last 16 at the Emirates Stadium.
Kroos netted a stunning opener as Bayern claimed a 2-0 first leg lead and produced a supreme performance to keep the Bavarian club on course to become the first side to retain the Champions League.
The Germany international was heavily linked with a move to United during the January transfer window after the revelation that talks regarding a new contract had broken down; discontent which swelled after he reacted angrily to being substituted in the 2-1 league win over Stuttgart.
United's interest in Kroos was firmed up by Moyes watching from the stands during the win in north London as the Scot continues to plan ahead of a summer transfer window where the Premier League champions have promised a deluge of spending following the January addition of Juan Mata from Chelsea.
But after a match-winning performance in helping Bayern put one foot in the quarter-final, manager Pep Guardiola revealed that Kroos wants to remain with the unbeaten Bundesliga leaders and spurn the attention of United.
"He played on a very, very high level," the Spanish boss admitted. "That was real Champions League level. We all want him to prolong [his stay], and he also wants that, I am very positive about it. The club, we all want that."
Having been an ever-present during Guardiola's first six months in charge of Bayern, Kroos has played a peripheral role of late featuring in just one league game in February since his reaction to being replaced against Stuttgart.
However, Kroos' desire to remain at Bayern all but ends United's pursuit of the former Bayer Leverkusen man and becomes the latest failed transfer target during Moyes' first season at Old Trafford.
United have signed Marouane Fellaini and Mata under Moyes' management but his reign has been defined by the inability to lure a number of high-profile players including Gareth Bale, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera amid the club's haphazard transfer tactics.
