Chelsea have offered Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos a whopping £6.4million a year, according to London24.
The German international only has a year left on his Allianz Arena contract and the Bundesliga champions are unwilling to bow down to his increasing wage demands.
But Chelsea have reportedly joined the race for his signature, alongside the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona, and have offered Kroos £120,000-a-week to tempt him to Stamford Bridge this summer.
A fee has not yet been agreed for the 24-year-old, but it’s believed Bayern are looking to cash in for as much as possible this summer instead of letting him go on a free in 2015.
Man United look to be out of the race for the midfielder since their capture of Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera, but Chelsea will still have to fight off competition from two of Europe’s biggest heavyweights.
