Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos has joined Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee on a six-year deal.

Kroos, 24, was a key player in the Germany side which beat Argentina 1-0 to win the World Cup and scored two goals during the competition in Brazil.

He will be presented to the Real Madrid fans at the Bernabeu on Thursday afternoon after undergoing a medical.

Kroos joined Bayern from Hansa Rostock as a 16-year-old and has made 176 appearances for the German giants.

He spent 18 months on loan at Bayer Leverkusen but returned to win three Bundesliga titles and three German cups.

He was part of the historic treble-winning side of 2012-13 which also lifted the Champions League, before winning the Uefa Super Cup and Fifa Club World Cup last season.

Kroos, whose contract with Bayern had one year left to run, had been linked with a move to Manchester United.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “We would like to thank Toni Kroos for his time here in Munich.

“We enjoyed great success here together. We would like to wish him and his family all the best in Madrid and with Real.”
