Some reports in Spain are suggesting that influential playmaker Toni Kroos could be on his away out of the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window. The German international has recently been linked with a move to English Premier League giants Manchester United.
Spanish news outlet Don Balon have stated that Kroos could be on his way out of La Liga, with Los Blancos cashing in so that they can fund other deals. Regarding the link to Manchester United, their manager Jose Mourinho is said to be a huge admirer of Kroos which should come as no surprise to anyone.
Kroos has been widely considered as one of the greatest midfield players in the world since he moved to Real Madrid from Bayern Munich back in 2014. It remains to be seen whether or not Kroos would be interested in any move away from the Bernabeu.
Many Teams Interested
It is not just Manchester United that are reportedly interested in the German international’s services, as Manchester City and Paris-Saint Germain are also keen on bringing him in at the end of the current season.
The report from Don Balon also claims that the potential sale of Kroos would help fund a huge move for the former Barcelona attacker Neymar, who is reportedly not happy at PSG. A fee of around £90m is being discussed for Kroos, while any move for Neymar would cost around £250m.
Of course, if Toni Kroos was to leave the Bernabeu then he would have to be replaced properly. Real have already been criticised for not replacing striker Alvaro Morata when he was sold to Chelsea in the summer and will look to avoid a repeat of that. Luka Modric has also been linked with a move away, so it will be interesting to see what happens in the summer.
