Germany Midfielder Toni Kroos set to Join Real Madrid
As the World Cup wraps up, and the chaos that is the transfer window kicks into high gear, the world’s biggest clubs have started to make big ticket moves.
Barcelona has already signed Luis Suarez, Chelsea have signed Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, Manchester United have brought in Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera and now Real Madrid has decided to join the fun.
Germany and former-Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has signed a six-year deal with the Spanish giants for a supposed 30 million euro.
Kroos was an important player in Germany’s World Cup victory, scoring twice in the teams 7-1 thrashing of host country Brazil and adding three assists.
Since joining the Munich first-team in 2007 Kroos, 24, has appeared 130 times and scored 13 goals.
After the move was made official, Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge wished Kroos well in his future endeavors with Madrid.
“We would like to thank Toni Kroos for his time here in Munich,” Rummenigge said. “We enjoyed great success here together. We would like to wish him and his family all the best in Madrid and with Real.”
Before the World Cup Kroos was heavily linked with Manchester United, but his performance in Brazil prompted the Spanish side to step in and claim Kroos for their own.
