Kroos' future was the subject of intense speculation during last month's transfer window, with Manchester United strongly linked with a move for the Germany international.

The 24-year-old's contract at the Allianz Arena is due to expire in 2015 and a number of clubs, including United, are thought to be monitoring his situation.

There have been suggestions that Kroos could be allowed to leave Bayern after a reported bust-up with manager Pep Guardiola.

However, Sammer insists everyone at Bayern wants to see Kroos remain at the Bundesliga giants for the long-term.

"We are aware that Toni Kroos is a very good player," Sammer told Sky Deutschland.

"We actually have a contract left to go with Toni Kroos and we clearly would want to keep on with him.

"Everyone at Bayern Munich is sharing this point of view."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
