Tiger Fight, October 1st, Bayern Munich CEO Rummenigge talked about Kroos’s transfer and leaving the team in an interview a few days ago.
Rummenigge said: “Cross’s transfer fee (25 million euros) is certainly not comparable to Neymar’s 220 million, but this is a different period. Cross wants the same salary as Gotze. He is ours. Players in the youth training, and the salary is lower than Gotze, in the process of negotiating with Cross's agent, we finally have two choices before us, either offer the same salary as Gotze, or let him go. "
In the end, Bayern chose to let Kroos go at a low price. The German media said that from the perspective of outcome, both sides can say that this was not a wrong decision. Rummenigge said: "I never thought about saying that the player left. We, I just prayed that he would behave badly so that it would spread our firepower."
