Toni Kross, the 33-year-old German international is likely to leave Real Madrid after the expiry of his contract later this year, though he isn’t a starter for the team anymore, his skills and ability go unquestioned and he is on the target lists of many clubs this winter. In recent interviews, he has confessed his interest in playing in the Premier League, this claim was further supported by news of the player being offered a free transfer to Manchester United and Newcastle United, both the clubs lack a distributor in the midfield position, and Kroos who has won five champions league titles, one world cup and also provided 88 assists for Real Madrid would be the perfect player to fill the gap that existing in the clubs.
The Newcastle midfielder and a recent transfer Sandro Tonali was recently banned for 10 months for his alleged involvement in a scandal, which makes them desperate for a new midfielder who can fill his gap for a year at the least, it is also a perfect situation for them as they don’t have to invest on a new youngster or a player but can get the required expertise directly by purchasing the Madrid player.
The agent of Toni Kroos has also emphasized the player’s desire to play in the premier league as various deals from Saudi Arabia clubs were declined by him and in an interview, Kroos also criticized the players who have gone to Saudi to finish their careers, which all make a case for the player to play in the Premier League. The second team likely to get him is the Red Devils who have performed lower than the expectations of the fans and management.
Ten Hag, the manager also has several disputes with the players, especially Jadon Sancho who has been left on the bench after disagreements with the playing style of the coach. His midfielder position is now up for grabs within the team. Now with the transfer market open, Toni Kroos can grab the opportunity to make his case stronger as one of the best midfielders of the modern game and end his career on a high as United is most likely to win trophies in comparison to other clubs which have shown interest on receiving his services.
The rivals of United are also open to the idea of signing the German legend to play for them. It is a high chance that Man City might hijack this deal from United and sign Kroos considering he has a lot of Champions League experience and will be a deadly pair with Kevin De Bruyne in midfield.
Apart from these two clubs, other premier clubs like Chelsea are also having poor seasons and are also interested in the Veteran Midfielder fans should keep in mind that anything can happen in a transfer market as other clubs may show interest at the very end to grab the player.
