The continuing front-office issues at Real Madrid have Premier League big boys eagerly waiting for a chance to poach Los Blancos’ top talents. Midfielder Toni Kroos, who has been an important contributor to the team, has become the latest Real Madrid star to garner the attention of Manchester United and Chelsea.
According to the Metro, the two Premier League giants have asked Kroos’ agent Volker Struth about his availability. Per the source, Man United and Chelsea are both prepared to offer the La Liga giants £37.8 million to secure Toni Kroos’ transfer and then pay the 26-year-old midfielder £4.5 million per year.
Kroos has started 17 games in La Liga this year, recording six assists in the process. The 26-year-old FIFA World Cup winner signed for Real Madrid in 2014 after a lengthy career in Bundesliga and started all but two games for Los Blancos in his first season.
The Metro noted that new Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane might be more opposed to letting Kroos leave.
