Toni Kroos has been a stand out favorite among the list of players that will be leaving Bundesliga.


Linked with Manchester United, Kroos is also said to be a target of Real Madrid. However, Kroos barely muttered a clue as to where he is going this summer.


In an interview, the Bavarian midfielder stressed that “he knows where he will play.” But he refused to name the club until World Cup is over.


Kroos has been fighting for his place in Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, but was unable to get a guarantee of a permanent spot. This is said to trigger the player’s intention to leave the Allianz Arena and build his career somewhere else.


Hakan Calhanoglu


Bayer Leverkusen has finally sealed the signature of a long time target, Hakan Calhanoglu. Leverkusen has been keeping an eye to the creative playmaker and his entry readily proves that he is worth the wait.


Calhanoglu’s transfer has been temporarily stalled when Hamburg decided not to sell the player. However, their bid for Pierre Michael Lassoga translates to spending a big amount. This left Hamburg with no other choice but to give in to Calhanoglu’s transfer to Bayer Leverkusen.


As for the Calhanoglu, the player is expressed his excitement over the said deal as this would give him more exposure and of course, the possibility of playing in the European competition.


Eric Choup-Moting

Determined to give its attacking department a boost, Schalke 04 secured the signature of striker, Eric Choup-Moting.


Moting scored  20 goals during his stay at Mainz. Likewise, he also featured in the World Cup. A three-year deal ensures that Moting will be wearing a Royal Blue jersey soon.
