Chelsea lodge £40m offer for Germany’s World Cup hero

toni kroosChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern endured another bleak evening last night with the 2-2 draw with West Brom but they’ve raised their spirits this afternoon, following reports of an incredible deal.

The Daily Star, reporting via Spanish outlet Fichajesstate Chelsea have made a £40m offer for Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.

World Cup winner Kroos is said to be unhappy in the Spanish capital due to a lack of playing time, as he competes with Isco, James Rodriguez, Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic for a regular starting spot with Los Blancos.

Chelsea are preparing to swoop to try and snatch the unhappy global icon, who’s highly-rated in European football having starred for Germany’s World Cup winning side and impressing for years in his home nation with Bayern Munich.

However, a player of Kroos’ calibre will be sure to want Champions League football and with the Blues languishing in the bottom half of the table, Kroos may reject the advances of the West London side.

Our landlord can’t see this deal happening at all, stating that if he leaves Madrid he can’t see him coming to the Premier League.

Chelsea fans, is Kroos a signing you need? Let us know in the comments below!
