Now it is official: Toni Kroos has extended his contract with Real Madrid until 2022. According to a report of the “Bild” newspaper, the German national player will earn 120 million euros during this time.
World Champion Toni Kroos has extended his contract with the Spanish top club Real Madrid until 2022. This was confirmed by the club on its website. Kroos had moved from Madrid to Madrid in 2014 and had a contract there until 2020.
According to unanswered reports of the “Bild” newspaper and the Spanish sports daily newspaper Marca, the 26-year-old in Madrid in future will earn 20 million euros gross annually. For the duration of six years, Kroos would receive 120 million euros. Kroos’ consultants did not want to comment on the sum.
It would be the highest-priced contract a German player has ever signed. Up to now, Bayern-Offensivspieler Thomas Müller with a merit of up to 15 million euro per year was the number one. Bastian Schweinsteiger is to come to Manchester United at 14 million euros, Ilkay Gündogan at Manchester City to twelve million euros.
In Madrid, Kroos would be one of the top stars, such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, who will also receive around 20 million euros a year. Apparently, real coach Zinedine Zidane has urged a premature contract extension. “It’s lucky to have a player like him,” he said last.
