Manchester United look to have missed out on Toni Kroos after the Germany midfielder confirmed that he is to join Real Madrid this summer.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the World Cup-winning Bayern Munich star for some time as he stalled over a new deal at the Bundesliga club.

However, the 24-year-old has now indicated that he is set to secure a big-money transfer to the Bernabeu ahead of next season.

“We’ve finished the World Cup in the best way possible,” Kroos said after Germany’s 1-0 World Cup final win over Argentina on Sunday.

“Now I’m going to Madrid, so that’s two dreams achieved.”

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