This year simply could not have gone any better for Toni Kroos as the German midfielder was praised to be one of the best players during the 2014 World Cup as he made consistent performances representing his nation at the international stage which concluded with Germany lifting the 2014 World Cup trophy, something they have not accomplished since 1990.
This triumph arrives sometime after Bayern Munich lifted the Bundesliga league title as well as securing the German Cup and now to top it all off Toni Kross is seeking his way towards Real Madrid on a permanent deal.
The transfer has been announced and confirmed by the player himself as he revealed to the public that it’s a dream not only being able to lift the World Cup silverware but also going on and joining the Spanish side Real Madrid.
“We’ve finished the World Cup in the best way possible. Now I’m going to Madrid, so that’s two dreams achieved,” the 24-year-old said.
A transfer fee in the region of €25 million is expected that Real Madrid will have to pay in order to lure Toni Kroos away from the Allianz Arena at Bayern Munich and into the Santiago Bernabeu. Carlo Ancelotti does not want to fall behind in this summer transfer window as their rivals, Barcelona have already made a huge signing as they signed Luis Suarez for €94 million and now Ancelotti is trying to reinforce his squad for the upcoming season.
Toni Kroos played an influential role for Germany during the 2014 World Cup as he played every single minute of the tournament and managed on scoring twice as well as providing 8 assists for his teammates. During his time as a player of Bayern Munich he was paid £60,000-per-week but with the transfer to Real Madrid having already been announced, his salary is expected to go up.
