According to the Express, Liverpool are ready to sign Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos in a shock transfer deal. The 25-year old is looking to move away from Bernabeu next season after a difficult first season with Real madrid.
The German international joined Real Madrid last season after winning 2014 World Cup and has been a key figure under sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti. The former manager gave Kroos assurances and convinced him to join Real Madrid last summer.
He was strongly linked with Manchester United back in 2013 while David Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford but ended up at Real Madrid last season after Bayern Munich decided to sell him due to his wage demands.
Real Madrid have had a below par season as they finished second to Barcelona in La Liga, lost to Juventus in Champions League and failed to reach Copa del Rey final as their fierce rivals Barcelona managed a historic treble.
Liverpool have suprisingly joined the pursuit for Toni Kroos but will face intense battle with PSG who are looking for a world-class defensive midfielder after failing to sign Paul Pogba who decided to stay at Juventus.
The German is one of the highly rated central midfielders across the world. He made 57 appearences for Real madrid last season and has an unbelievable 92 percent pass completion. He is also one of the best long range shooters in entire Europe and a two-footed player which will be an asset to any team he plays for.
