Toni Kroos worth £95m plus Paul Pogba, says brother Felix

Paul Pogba and Toni Kroos are amongst world football's most highly-sought after players.

The midfield pair, currently on international duty at Euro 2016, have been linked with big-money moves away from their respective clubs in recent weeks.

Pogba has particularly made headlines over the past few days amidst interest from Real Madrid, who reportedly made a €120 million bid for the French superstar last week.

Juventus quickly rejected Los Blancos' approach and it's believed they will demand the above fee and Kroos if a deal is to be struck.

However, in brother Felix Kroos' eyes, it should be the other way around.

According to the Daily Mail, the 25-year-old believes Toni is worth £95 million (€120 million) plus Pogba.

He said: "It is something that surprised me, [as it] should be the opposite.

"It is Juventus who should pay more than €120 million, plus Pogba, to incorporate Toni.

"Toni is the best in the world in his position."

Talk about bold.

It's no wonder the Union Berlin attacking midfielder rates his brother so highly, though, following his fantastic performance against Ukraine on Monday.

Toni dominated in central midfield, recording a phenomenal 93% pass accuracy and providing an inch-perfect cross for Skhodran Mustafi's opener.

Much like Juventus' valuation, though, Felix's is a bit steep. 

Pogba has developed into a world-class midfielder since arriving in Turin from Manchester United in 2012.

Tall, strong, quick and lethal from range, the 23-year-old has it all.

Former employers United are also said to be in the race to sign him after Jose Mourinho convinced the club's board to do so.

Twelve months ago the Red Devils had no interest in re-signing Pogba but, according to Manchester Evening News, Mourinho has told Ed Woodward to sanction a big-money summer move.

As a result, it would seem United are ready to broker a £78 million deal.

Pogba's many suitors have only been given a glimpse of his talent at Euro 2016 so far, though, after Didier Deschamps dropped the Juventus star - and Antoine Griezmann - against Albania on Wednesday night.

France's manager has since revealed that Pogba was unhappy about not being picked to start.

He said, according to the Guardian: "I know [Griezmann] is not happy, nor is Paul Pogba.

“Pogba was more of a tactical decision. With that system I thought we needed two real scrappers in the middle of the park. Paul has different attributes.

"As for Griezmann, I am managing him. He is doing well but he had a busy season and we have three games in nine days. He made the difference even though I know he would have preferred to have started the game.”
