La Sexta Jugones usually have some good information about Real Madrid, and today, they reported that Bayern Munich player Toni Kroos has decided to join Real Madrid and reject Arsenal and Manchester United's offers. That way, and according to Jugones' report, Kroos might be the midfielder Real Madrid sign this summer.

Other potential transfer targets for Real Madrid, according to the same report, are Ramires and Marco Verratti, although their signings seem far more unlikely. Mourinho wants to get Luka Modric in exchange for the Brazilian midfielder, while PSG are not thinking about selling Verratti.

Anyway, this will be a very long summer if we consider that Real Madrid will probably sign the midfielder after the World Cup ends. PSG, Chelsea and Bayern are not easy teams to buy players from. They have money and they are trying to compete for European glory. Still, Kroos only has one year left in his contract, and if he doesn't want to get an extension with the German squad, Guardiola and company will have to sell this summer to get something in return.
