Kroos: Madrid talks in 'next two days'

Toni Kroos has told AS that he expects to complete his transfer to Real Madrid "in the next two days."

The Bayern Munich midfielder returned to Berlin on Tuesday with the rest of the German national squad to celebrate winning the World Cup in Brazil, before departing on his holidays to Mallorca.

But with just one year left on his contract with Bayern, the 24-year-old looks set to leave the Bundesliga champions and make the move to Champions League winners Real.

"It isn't official, I can't say anything," he said on Wednesday in Mallorca. "In the next two days I'll be able to go to Madrid."

Questioned over his current happiness, he responded: "Of course, how could I not be happy if I've won the World Cup."

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed on Tuesday that the clubs had held talks regarding a deal for the World Cup winner.

"There are talks between Bayern and Real," Rummenigge said, confirming that, "We don't want to lose the player on a free next season."

Kroos played every minute of Germany's World Cup campaign, scoring two goals and creating three more as Die Nationalmannschaft won the trophy for the fourth time in their history.

Spanish media reported last week that the transfer fee for Kroos is expected to be in the region of 25 million euros.
