The long-time German national player Toni Kroos, who is currently for the Traditional club Real Madrid plays and be there compared to Bayern Munich Salary has increased from a good 4.5 million euros to 21 million euros, has been one of the most sought-after and best-paid German soccer players since winning the 2014 World Cup. He should be a have an estimated fortune of 80 million euros.
The salary that Real Madrid actually paid him annually was initially 10.9 million euros. That came from the contract that Toni Kroos signed on July 17th, 2014 with the Royal and was published by “Football Leaks”. An early contract extension in October 2016 to 2022 brings Toni Kroos a salary of 21 million euros per year one. He rose to the top earner in the football business. However, this does not include the Advertising contracts with the numerous sponsors and the bonuses of the German national team that generate additional income. Extrapolated therefore results in a estimated fortune of 80 million euros, which will increase even further in the next few years.
The documentary about his career so far came to German cinemas on July 4th, 2019 and can be seen on Amazon Prime.
Toni Kroos, born on January 4, 1990 – at that time still a citizen of the German Democratic Republic – started playing football in a club at the age of seven. First he played for the regional club Greifswalder SC, a sports club that also played other sports in addition to football. The special thing about the time at Greifswalder SC was that he was trained by his own father. Although he later moved to Hansa Rostock in his capacity as a youth coach, this circumstance would still be decisive for the career of the young Toni. Toni played a total of five years for the regional club until he finally moved with his father to the youth of the larger club Hansa Rostock at the age of twelve.
FC Bayern Munich era
It was above all during the youth in Rostock where Kroos familiarized himself with “big” football and gradually grew into his role as a midfielder. He played for Rostock until he was sixteen when he joined the amateur team of the record club FC Bayern Munich (2006). He quickly became an important part of the team and played an active role in the games. From the season on, he no longer had to worry about his financial future, as he had been offered a multi-year contract up to and including the 2010/11 season.
However, he shouldn’t keep his amateur status until a year later, the then coach Ottmar Hitzfeld, who was deeply impressed by him, decided to take the young Kroos into the professional squad. He had him train with the professionals beforehand. In his first season with the “big ones” he scored 4 goals in only 13 games. But the small number of games played suggests that he was not an integral part of the squad at that time, so Jürgen Klinsmann, the coach of the following season, decided to give Kroos the opportunity to gain fruitful match experience at another club. However, this endeavor had only partial success due to an injury.
The time after his return to Bayern Munich should be more successful for Kroos. Now he became an integral part of the team – as several players in the professional squad were injured – and impressed with solid performances. At 4.5 million euros, he also earned significantly more than when he started out under the amateur contract. By the time he moved to the Spaniards, Kroos was to play a total of 130 games in the senior team and score 13 goals.
With the salary at Madrid to the million fortune
After he was spurred on by the World Cup on the one hand and his high market value on the other, he demanded significantly more salary for a contract extension towards the end of the 2014 season – According to Focus, we are talking about around 8 million euros Since the negotiations with the then coach Pep Guardiola and President Uli Hoeneß went nowhere, he finally decided to switch to Real Madrid, where he earned 30% more in one fell swoop than at Bayern. More precisely, he earned a salary of 10.9 million euros per season in Madrid until 2016.
Early contract extension with Real Madrid
In October 2016 Toni Kroos extended his contract, which ran until 2020, to 2022 inclusive Salary was at a total of 21 million euros per season raised. Real coach Zinedine Zidane pushed for this early extension and thus tied him to the royal club for the long term. The renewed early contract extension took place on May 20, 2019 until the summer of 2023, after there were several rumors of change. That also shows how important Kroos is in Madrid.
Kroos has been a member of the national team since the 2010 World Cup. There he played 106 games under national coach Jogi Löw and scored 17 goals. For his participation in the 2014 World Cup, he received a DFB bonus of 300,000 euros. After losing the round of 16 at the EM 2021, Toni surprisingly announced the end of his DFB team career at the age of only 31 and wants to concentrate fully on club football with Real Madrid from now on.
