Galáctico! Toni Kroos joins Real Madrid in €30 million deal on 5 year contract [Bild]
Toni Kroos has completed his €30 million move to Real Madrid and signed a 5 year contract with the club, report German news site Bild.
Kroos leaves Bayern Munich after his contract demands were not met and at Real Madrid his net salary will be €6 million per year.
So in reflection, Real Madrid have gotten the bargain of the summer!
Kroos was integral to Germany’s triumph at the World Cup and was statistically one of the best players at the tournament with his passing being as accurate as ever.
The deep-lying playmaker was a target for Manchester United as well but chose Madrid instead. The European Champions have acquired a player worth at least €45 million and strengthened an already formidable team.
