Real Madrid are looking to offload Toni Kroos along with Gareth Bale in order to design a probable transfer for star Brazilian, Neymar. Florentino Perez has expressed his admiration for Neymar and wants him at the Santiago Bernabeu to be a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kroos has enjoyed a decorated career so far for both club and country. A product of the Bayern Munich youth setup, Kross broke into the first team in the 2011/12 season under manager, Jupp Heynckes.
The 27-year-old displayed great maturity and composure in the central midfield role and cemented a first team spot in the German national team for the 2012 Euro Cup. An ability to deliver inch-perfect balls to his teammates all over the pitch while also dominate the middle of the pitch with a clever link-up play is a hard talent to look over.
Already a World Cup winner in 2014, Kroos is one of the best midfielders in Europe and has been key for Real Madrid over the past 3 and a half years.
The East German maestro has racked up a lot of trophies in his playing career and still has his best years ahead of him. A transfer in January will certainly fetch the Galacticos a significant transfer fee and might just be enough to fit themselves within the regulations of the Financial Fair Play.
United boss, Jose Mourinho has fallen short of the requisite quality in comparison to their Noisy Neighbours this season and have dropped 14 points behind them in the league. The Portuguese tactician has been crying out for more quality signings to current United squad and has been provided with a war chest ahead of the January transfer window.
However, with the signing of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba to the side over the past two seasons, is Kroos really an ideal target for him?
It is no secret that Mourinho is primarily interested in signing a left-back and a winger as soon as possible. The transfer deal with Inter Milan over their Croatian wide man, Ivan Perisic fell through in the summer and Ashley Young had to be chosen as a makeshift full-back from the left.
The addition of Kroos might not be the best idea for the Red Devils at this very moment. However, his talents are still quite valuable for any club and will help combat the squad strength of rivals Manchester City and other elite Premier League teams.
