Toni Kroos has completed his transfer to Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee, Bayern Munich have confirmed.

The Germany midfielder had been touted as a target for Manchester United this summer but has now signed a contract with Los Blancos until the summer of 2020.

“We would like to thank Toni for his time at Bayern Munich,” said Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on the deal.

“We enjoyed some great successes together. We wish him and his family all the best in Madrid and at Real.”

Kroos scored two goals and made four assists in 29 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern Munich last season.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand feels that World Cup winner Kroos will be a top signing for Madrid.

Ferdinand tweeted on Wednesday: “If Toni Kroos signs for Real Madrid they will win the league again & minimum semi’s in CL….him alongside [Luka] Modric though.”
