Toni Kroos offered €5m-a-year by Real Madrid

Published Add your comment

Manchester United’s chances of capturing Toni Kroos are becoming more remote with each passing day, with Real Madrid the clear frontrunners to secure the acquisition of the coveted midfielder from Bayern Munich.

Real Madrid, it is claimed, have entered into negotiations with Kroos and the Germany international has been offered a sizeable salary if he moves to the Santiago Bernabeu. BILD report that Real Madrid have tabled a contract worth €5 million-per-year net, which is significantly more than the renewal proposed by Bayern.

The Bundesliga champions are prepared to pay Kroos between €4-6million-per-year gross, and he is seemingly now focused on securing a transfer to Real Madrid. Manchester United, though, continue to be linked with Kroos, although their attempts to sign him may now prove futile.

It has been reported that Louis van Gaal, who will officially become Manchester United manager following the World Cup, has spoken to Kroos on the telephone in an attempt to persuade him to move to Old Trafford.

Bayern Munich, meanwhile, would reportedly favour completing a deal for Kroos with Real Madrid rather than with Manchester United, given that they have undertaken smooth negotiations with the Champions League winners in the past.
