Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has rebuffed reports claiming that the German midfielder has decided to join Real Madrid after the World Cup.
Recent reports from Spain suggested that Toni Kroos has turned down a final offer from Bayern Munich in favour of a move to Real Madrid after the World Cup, but the German international has dismissed these reports insisting he won’t take a decision about his future till he part of the German squad in Brazil.
Kroos, whose current contract at Bayern Munich will expire in 2015, has been in talks with the German club over an extension but despite both the parties to have failed to agree over a solution as of yet.
Manchester United were initially linked with a move for Kroos in the summer, but the 24-year-old midfielder, who is rated among the best in the world in his position, has publicly ruled out a transfer to Manchester United last month and insisted that Bayern Munich are unlikely to sell him in this transfer window.
But latest reports from Spain suggest that Toni Kroos is on the verge of completing his move to Real Madrid and could be announced after the World Cup. Carlo Ancelotti is believed to be a big admirer of the German midfielder and sees him as the perfect long-term replacement for Xabi Alonso, whose recent performances, both for club and country has drawn a lot of criticism. Ancelotti also remains unconvinced by the development of Asier Illaramendi and feels the addition of Kroos will help them in wrestling back the league title from Atletico Madrid next season.
Spanish newspaper Marca reports that a deal of €25 million has been agreed between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid over the transfer of Toni Kroos and the German midfielder will sign a five-year contract worth €5 million per year.
According to them Kroos rejected a final offer from Bayern Munich in favour of joining Real Madrid and has also turned down a massive offer from English club Chelsea, who reportedly offered him a bigger contract than Real Madrid, as he wants to move to Spain.
But the Bayern Munich star has now dismissed these reports and has insisted that he is yet to decide about his future.
“I’ve said all along I will not make a decision on my future during the World Cup.
“I can’t comment on every article that comes out in the press. When the World Cup is over, I’ll make my decision and something will be announced.
“That won’t happen in the tournament. I won’t sign anything while I’m with the squad.” – Kroos said in an interview.
