Manchester City are considering the possibility of signing Toni Kroos as a free agent when his contract expires at the end of the season, according to reports in Spain quoted by several English outlets.
The 33-year-old signed a one-year contract this summer, and if he decides to stay put after it expires, he’s highly unlikely to be offered a deal longer than another 12 months. This, combined with three times the wages he makes in Madrid apparently on offer at the Etihad, is what the Premier League champions and the Champions League holders believe should be enough to tempt him away from the Spanish capital.
The expiration of his current contract will mark exactly 10 years of Kroos as a Real Madrid player, and it’s certainly been a glorious decade. In that time, the 106-cap Germany international helped the Spanish giants win four Champions League trophies, four UEFA Super Cups and five FIFA Club World Cups, as well as three La Liga titles, one Copa del Rey trophy, and three Spanish Super Cups. In all competitions, he has so far worn the famous white shirt on 428 occasions, scoring 28 goals and contributing 91 assists.
