Man City plan pre-contract talks with Real Madrid midfielder Kroos

Manchester City are seeking pre-contract talks with Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.

The Germany international, 32, comes off contract in Madrid and says he’s in no rush to discuss new terms.

Sport says City are monitoring the situation and ready to offer pre-contract terms to Kroos over the New Year.

Kroos would arrive as a direct replacement for countryman Ilkay Gundogan, who is set to leave City when his deal expires at season’s end.

Also watching Kroos is PSG.
