Bayern are holding off on giving Kroos a new contract.

Toni Kroos has discussed a move to Manchester United with his family, according to his brother.

The Bayern Munich midfielder is yet to agree a new contract with the European champions and has been scouted by United manager David Moyes.

Kroos' current deal at the Allianz Arena expires in 2015 and the Germany international has said he will not make a decision about his future until the summer.

But his younger brother Felix, who plays for Werder Bremen, said the 24-year-old is aware of United's interest as he weighs up his options.

He told Sky Germany: "We have already talked about it. Manchester has been the team of my dreams since I was a child.

"However, I don't give him any advice. He will take a good decision for himself. There are worse situations than having to decide something like that."

Moyes has made signing a central midfielder a priority since his appointment at Old Trafford last summer.

He failed in bids for Cesc Fabregas, Thiago Alcantara, Daniele De Rossi, Sami Khedira and Ander Herrera before buying Marouane Fellaini from his former club Everton last summer, but remains eager to strengthen in that department.

Moyes, who has also been linked with Sporting Lisbon's William Carvalho, went to watch Kroos in Germany when Bayern faced Borussia Monchengladbach in January and was at the Emirates Stadium, when he scored in a 2-0 Champions League win over Arsenal.
