Newcastle United are reportedly weighing up a move for Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos as per the report in Spanish outlet El Nacional.
The German international joined Los Blancos back in 2014 from Bayern Munich for around €25 million. The midfielder took no time to settle down in the Spanish capital and became an integral part of Santiago Bernabeu’s recent success, winning three consecutive Champions League titles and two La Liga trophies.
According to the report, Newcastle United are looking to rebuild their squad under the new Saudi-backed ownership and they have identified Toni Kroos as their priority option for the midfield position.
The Magpies are willing to spend around €30 million for the technically gifted German midfielder who has less than two years remaining in his current contract. The Premier League club is looking to spend big in the upcoming transfer window. And they are eyeing a squad overhaul in 2022.
Newcastle United eyeing a move for Toni Kroos:
Signing Toni Kroos will be a great acquisition for Newcastle United. The midfielder’s experience and his ability with the ball will certainly be a mouth-watering prospect for the St. James Park faithful.
Meanwhile, the Magpies are enduring a torrid time this season. As they are currently sitting 19th in the league with four points in 10 games without a win. After sacking Steve Bruce the Newcastle hierarchy have taken a slow approach in finding a replacement for the Englishman.
Whereas with the games going by and the Toon are struggling to showcase any positivity on the pitch. While it might be tough for the new manager to implement his philosophy on the side. As they are already in real danger of relegation. So, it will be interesting to see how quickly Newcastle United can turn their fortune around this season.
