World Cup star Toni Kroos confirmed after Sunday’s final that he is set to join European champions Real Madrid. The Bayern Munich midfielder enjoyed an excellent campaign with Germany in Brazil, playing a starring role in their World Cup win which culminated with a 1-0 extra-time victory over Argentina.
Kroos, who finished the tournament as the leading creator with four assists, confirmed after the final in the Maracana that he would indeed be leaving Bayern for Real. Madrid were linked a number of weeks ago, but at that time Kroos refused to comment as he was concentrating on the finals.
But now Kroos has revealed that he will be heading to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer. “We’ve finished the World Cup in the best way possible. Now I’m going to Madrid, so that’s two dreams achieved,” Kroos said.
