Real Madrid will be taking on Bayern Munich in the final of the Audi cup
Real Madrid will be taking on Bayern Munich in the final of the Audi cup in a game that could be very special for one of the players. Midfielder Toni Kroos plays for Real Madrid but he could come up against Bayern Munich. The German came through the ranks at Bayern before making a big impression at the Allianz Arena. He appeared to be the future of Bayern once Guardiola came to the club. However, it was not to be after the midfielder joined Madrid in order to experience a new challenge. A serial winner with Bayern, Kroos had the opportunity to lift the Champions League with two different teams in back-to-back seasons.
He had come to Madrid in the season in which they faltered in the semi-final stage. It has been just a year since he moved to the Santiago Bernebeu and the player has not forgotten the fond memories that he had at the Allianz Arena. Speaking about the chance of being in the starting line-up against his former club, Kroos says that it will be a strange occasion. However, this will not be the first time Kroos comes up against by as one of the opposition players. He was allowed to face his parent club whilst on loan at Bayern Leverkusen.
“I had some amazing years here. Whilst on loan at Bayer Leverkusen I had the chance to play on the opposing side here, but this is the first time with Real Madrid, which is something special,” said the midfielder, who is believed to have cost around £ 20 million last summer since he had only 12 months left on his contract. Madrid were able to take advantage of the contractual situation and a player, who would be worth around £ 40 million in today’s inflated market.
