Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos insists his reported move to Real Madrid has not yet been defined, and that he is waiting until after the World Cup before revealing where his future lies.
Spanish newspaper Marca last week reported that Kroos had already sorted terms with Real and that the two clubs had reached an agreement over a fee.
With only 12 months left to run on his contract with the Bundesliga champions, and after turning down their offer of an extension, the 24-year-old seems certain to leave Bayern this summer, with Manchester United also reportedly keen.
However, the Germany international told Munich’s Tz newspaper that all will become clear after next Sunday’s final, which he hopes to be part of.
“I’ve read all the reports – it’s hard not to – but I’ve already said that nothing is decided yet,” Kroos said.
“The latest reports simply weren’t accurate. I just want to play the World Cup to its conclusion first and then, when that’s over, there will be a decision.
“That decision will then be announced by me – not by a newspaper.
“While nothing is yet certain, there is nothing to talk about. There’s another week to go of the World Cup and then we’ll know more. I could also stay at Bayern.”
Germany take on hosts Brazil in the first World Cup semi-final in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday.
