TONI KROOS 'wouldn't be surprised' if Real Madrid sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
The Frenchman has long been linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu.
Club president Florentino Perez is obsessed with recruiting the 22-year-old.
PSG however have been bullish about keeping their young star.
But with under a year left on his contract, and the imminent arrival of Lionel Messi about to significantly inflate their wage bill – PSG could come under pressure to sell Mbappe before the end of the month.
And Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos wouldn't be at all surprised.
He told Bild: "I prefer to talk about signings that have already been completed.
"But since Real always want the best, I would not be surprised."
Mbappe is believed to earn around £375,000-a-week at Parc des Princes.
To be able to afford him, Madrid may need to flog players of their own.
This could open the door to Arsenal re-signing Martin Odegaard – with the Norwegian still a key target.

Carlo Ancelotti's side have had a stuttering pre-season, losing 2-1 to Rangers last month before drawing 0-0 with AC Milan yesterday.
Gareth Bale made his return to action against the Italian giants, wearing the No50, but missed a penalty that could have won the game for his side.
Mbappe, meanwhile, made his first appearance of the season on Saturday – helping PSG to a Ligue 1 opening day 2-1 victory over Troyes.
