Los Blancos cannot possibly let Kroos leave, right?

Pep Guardiola will offer €75 million to sign Toni Kroos away from Real Madrid, according to ESPN. Manchester City clearly have the money to make that kind of offer and the Spanish coach wants to coach Kroos again after losing the midfielder before his second season with Bayern Munich even began.

Kroos is a crucial piece in Real's system and Los Blancos won't let him go that easily unless he clearly states that he wants out, something quite unlikely given that Madrid just conquered their 11th European title. Furthermore, Kroos' style of play might not fit the Barclays Premier League all that well, given how physical the British competition is.

The German midfielder is still playing in the UEFA Euro 2016 and he's been a key player for Joachim Löw. Germany will play the winner of the France-Iceland match in the Semifinals for a chance of winning the European title.

Likelihood: 1/10
