Top 5 best Real Madrid players of decade (2010-2019)
5. Toni Kroos
Just three days after Germany’s FIFA World Cup win in 2014, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich surprised everyone by announcing that they would be selling Toni Kroos, who had a great 2014 World Cup, to Real Madrid. Eventually, it turned out to be one of Bayern’s biggest-ever mistakes in the transfer market, as the German midfielder evolved into a world-class footballer at the Santiago Bernabeu. Since the 2014-15 season, Kroos has been a vital clog in the Real Madrid midfield which dominated Europe for a greater part of this decade.
While Los Blancos won the 2013-14 Champions League without Kroos, the former Bayer Leverkusen star played in a key role in their future wins in the 2015-16, 2016-17 and the 2017-18 seasons. Known for his vision and passing ability, the 29-year-old has also been named in the UEFA Team of the Year and the FIFPro World XI thrice each this decade.
