Kroos control

According to reports in the German press, Chelsea are putting £9 million aside until the end of the season with which they will attempt to lure Bayern Munich into parting with their talented young midfielder Toni Kroos.

Chelsea have reportedly been chasing Kroos for four years as a long-term replacement for Frank Lampard, and first tried to sign him when he left Hansa Rostock to join Munich in 2006 – at the tender age of 16.

Here’s a little look at what the boy can do…

Kroos enjoyed an excellent season on-loan at Bayer Leverkusen last season, scoring ten goals and contributing nine assists to the cause, and has since seen his standing at Bayern Munich increased ten-fold. All said, I’m not particularly confident that £9 million is going to swing it.

    Kroos is an excellent player. He’ll be one of the pillars of the german national squad in a few years.

  2. Outside Mid says:

    Watched him play for Neverkusen last season and he was in top form. It’s going to take a bit more money for Bayern to part with him, if they choose to.

    kroos has been impressive so far this season at bayern munich, although he couldn’t inspire the side in a few scoreless matches recently. van gaal has put faith in him and it’s paid off, part of the reason i think the dutch coach didn’t opt to buy a new playmaker such as ozil or afellay when management gave him loads of cash to spend over the summer. van gaal is brilliant when giving home grown talent the chance.

    please get Schweinsteiger instead.
