Chelsea lining up big money Real Madrid star as club plot for new era

Chelsea are keen on Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos ahead of the looming summer transfer window, according to reports from CalcioMercatoWeb.

The Blues have endured a woeful season, and appear on course to miss out on any form of European qualification for next term.

Only winning the FA Cup or the Champions League will book the Londoners a spot in continental football unless they can dramatically turn around the form that leaves them in 12th spot in the league, but reports claim they still have big plans for the off-season, with Kroos being eyed.

The Germany international, who helped his nation to World Cup glory in 2014, is considered to be one of the best playmakers in La Liga, and currently pockets the third highest salary of any player at the Bernebeu – only Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale earn more.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not the club can convince Kroos to relocate, but they look to be in line for a massive summer of changes with Guus Hiddink’s interim reign due to come to an end once the season finishes.
