Kroos eyes summer move from Real Madrid

12 Apr 2019

Toni Kroos is eyeing a move from Real Madrid and could well leave this summer if Los Blancos agree to sanction his sale.

Kroos’ lacklustre form was particularly evident in March’s shock Champions League last-16 exit, for which he was widely identified as one of the chief culprits. In the holders’ 4-1 second-leg defeat to Ajax, the midfielder – whose precise passing is one of his key features – gave the ball away no fewer than 24 times, with one such loss of possession leading to the Dutchmen’s opener.

Kroos keen on new challenge, but Madrid won’t let him leave on cheap

Having enjoyed an otherwise successful spell at Madrid that has seen him win 12 trophies, Kroos feels he has achieved everything he can at the Bernabéu and that the time has come for a fresh challenge. A summer departure will also depend on the club’s stance on his future, although the 13-time European champions are not expected to stand in his way if he is adamant he wants to go.

However, Kroos’ excellent reputation among Europe’s top clubs is not lost on Madrid – for example, Manchester United sought to lure him to Old Trafford last year – and Los Merengues would only be persuaded to sell for a significant sum.
