As if nobody knew by now, Toni Kroos' deal with Real Madrid will be announced after the World Cup ends. Franz Beckenbauer, who played a big part on Bayern's board for a long time, has confirmed that the midfielder will sign for Real Madrid. Not many people needed this quote to confirm the deal, as Kroos' transfer to los blancos was all but done. Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano -Sky Sports- first reported Beckenbauer's quotes.

It will be interesting to see how Kroos adapts to the Spanish capital, but he will definitely add some depth to the midfield line. He's playing well this World Cup and Ancelotti might build a possession-oriented team around him and Modric.

Kroos will indeed be Real Madrid's first signing this summer, and some rivals like Barcelona have made some moves on the market like Luis Suárez.
