The German midfielder adds fuel to the ceaseless rumors linking the French forward to the Santiago Bernabeu.

An optimistic Toni Kroos is hoping that “good things will come out of” Lionel Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain, hinting the transfer could result in Kylian Mbappe finally joining Real Madrid.

Real Madrid’s interest in signing Mbappe is no news, with the player understood to be on the club’s wishlist since his Monaco days.

The 22-year-old is a known admirer of Real Madrid legends Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo and supposedly also intends to trace his idols’ footsteps to the Spanish capital.

His reluctance to commit to fresh terms at PSG despite having entered the final year of his current contract might be an indication that the Frenchman has made the decision to pursue his ambition, especially considering he’s now no longer the main man at Parc des Princes.

“We’ll see how it all works out (Messi’s move to PSG),” said Kroos speaking to his brother, Felix, on their joint podcast¬†Einfach mal luppen.

“Maybe the move is good for us because our biggest competitor has lost their best player. And maybe even more good things will come out of it as a result.

“Maybe [a player] from Paris joins us‚Ķ If that (Mbappe signing for Madrid) should actually happen – I don’t know – this whole Messi deal would certainly not be a disadvantage for us.”
