Real Madrid have been dealt a blow with the news that Christoph Kramer will not be joining the club.
The agent of the Borussia Monchengladbach star revealed the news which will be a boost to a host of Premier League clubs also linked with a move for the star.
The agent, Von Bruch, said:
“Christoph is concentrated on Gladbach at the moment and from the summer, he has a contract with Leverkeusen.
“Real Madrid is not an option.”
The Premier League quarter of Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United have been chasing Kramer, along with the Spanish giants.
Kramer is currently on loan at Monchengladbach from fellow German club Bayer Leverkusen. Leverkusen are keen to have the player back when the loan deal expires at the end of this season.
