Toni Kroos Brings 5 Valuable Assets to Real Madrid
Toni Kroos coming to Real Madrid is a dream move for both parties as the German World Cup-winner has more than experience and youth to offer. Here are five things that Kroos brings to the table.
At just 24, Kroos has earned so many plaudits, already winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich in 2013 and just lifted the World Cup with Germany yesterday. Now, he looks set to join Real Madrid to add a bit more of German intelligence to the midfield as he is ready for a new adventure. If he succeeds, he can enjoy the majority of his twenties in the Spanish capital. He is joining the reigning champions of the UCL.
Kroos is one of the most patient midfielders there is today. Being as young as he is, it is refreshing that he does not mind passing the ball quickly, getting others involved and only looking for the killer-pass or shot when the opportunity presents itself. He may be criticized for doing this in a fast-paced system, but they will learn to appreciate his graceful style of the game.
The Champions League and World Cup-winner is joining an organization that is all about winning. He continues to grow as an individual player and teammate as each season and tournament progresses. He knows what it takes to win big games and will look to do so for Real Madrid, a team he sees as a dream.
Vision is an asset that a lot of players, especially those under the age of 30, lack. Kroos, 24, is not one of them. In fact, his eye for the goal from a distance and ability to seek out short passes as well as long ones have been opening up defenses throughout his career. This youngster started for Bayern Munich and Germany for that very reason. He will start for Real Madrid and share that same ability.
Not many teams are thrilled to rely on young players to be a leader, but Real Madrid is welcoming a two-way midfielder who can make good things happen. As previously stated, he was a huge part of the 2013 Champions League triumph by Bayern Munich and Germany 2014 World Cup victory. With that piece of history on his resume, he is joining a club that is always open to bringing in the best talent, and that is what he is.
