Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is hoping to bring Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos to Manchester City in the summer.
Kroos is 32, but has not renewed his contract with the Santiago Bernabeu stadium club so far.
According to El Nacional, Kroos is reluctant to sign a new deal, as he may want a fresh adventure.
The source adds that Guardiola is desperate to entice him to City, as he believes Kroos still has a lot to offer.
Speaking about Kroos in 2019, the Spanish coach said: “I think he’s a competitive animal, Toni. What has most impressed me about Toni as a footballer, as a player, is that he is always there. Always.
“He likes to play football and it doesn’t matter where – the Champions League final or the first round of the cup. In Germany or Spain. He likes to play all of the time.
“He is a player with impressive effectiveness. You can count on him 60 games in one season. These are the physically strong ones. He is never injured. He plays in heat, in cold, in rain, in wind. In all circumstances he is always available.”
