There is disappointment here in the Football Transfer Tavern for two of our regular sets of fans after the Daily Express claimed that T0ni Kroos will make a move to Real Madrid.
The Bayern Munich star will leave once his current deal expires and in 2015 will join Real Madrid, snubbing interest from both Chelsea and Manchester United to do so.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, the German midfielder is one of the most coveted properties in football and Chelsea were reported to be willing to make a mega money offer to secure him.
However it seems that a desire to play in Spain for current champions of Europe Real Madrid has outweighed all of that and both Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal will have to look elsewhere.
Kroos is unwilling to pen a new deal at Bayern Munich and has been unconvinced by manager Pep Guardiola, leading to the impending move and indeed mass interest from the majority of Europe’s elite.
Premier League fans. Is it a shame that we will not see Kroos play in the best league in the world or is he replaceable and not worth the money suggested? Let us know your thoughts below.
