Report: Kroos out, Pogba and Eriksen in for Real Madrid this summer

Real Madrid are willing to sanction the sale of Toni Kroos this summer, and will look to replace the midfielder with moves for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.

The Spanish giants are set to significantly invest in their squad this summer, having endured a disappointing campaign.

Real are currently 14 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona, whilst the club’s defence of the Champions League was ended with a humbling defeat to Ajax in the last-16.

Zinedine Zidane has returned to the club as manager, and looks set to overhaul his squad in the summer transfer window.

According to AS German midfielder Kroos will be a casualty of the revamp, with the 29-year-old said to be keen on a new challenge having spent five years in Spain.

The sale of Kroos would likely release significant funds for Real, with Pogba and Eriksen said to be amongst their primary targets.

Pogba has long been linked with a move to the Spanish capital, having declared recently on international duty that playing under Zidane and for the club would be ‘a dream for anyone‘.

Madrid are also reportedly believed to be interested in a move for Eriksen, with the Danish midfielder potentially following the path of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric in swapping the North London club for Madrid.
