Kroos picked up an assist in Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Saturday, his third of the season.

With so many offensive stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema in front of him, Kroos is bound to find himself on the receiving end of a few assists, but he's not primarily focused on the attack, which limits his value in many fantasy leagues.

Kroos started and played all 90 minutes of Real Madrid's 5-1 Champions League rout of FC Basel on Tuesday, but he did not attempt a shot.

Kroos is playing a bit of a deeper role, with Luka Modric getting more involved on the attack. However, he still has the opportunity for plenty of assists, of which he has two through Madrid's first three league matches.

Kroos' corner was headed in by Sergio Ramos in the fifth minute of Real Madrid's 4-2 loss to Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Kroos now has an assist in both of Madrid's La Liga matches this season and he'll continue to be a vital piece of the attack, although mostly as a distributor for Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Karim Benzema, among others.

Kroos picked up an assist on Karim Benzema's 30th-minute goal during Real Madrid's 2-0 win over Cordoba on Monday.

Kroos looked very comfortable playing in his first La Liga match for Real Madrid, and with punishing goal-scorers like James Rodriguez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema around him, Kroos could rack up the assists this season.

Bayern Munich announced that Kroos has signed a six-year contract with Real Madrid, reports Sky Sports.

Bayern confirmed earlier this week that Kroos would be leaving the club, and it was only a matter of time before confirmation came that his destination was Real Madrid. Kroos will undergo a medical exam on Thursday and then be presented to the media.

Bayern Munich Chairman Karl-Heinz Rumminigge confirmed Tuesday that Kroos will not be staying with the club, Marca reports. "We didn't want to lose him next season and not get paid the release clause. We are obligated to look after the club's finances; we couldn't allow ourselves that luxury," Rumminigge said.

Kroos has only one year left on his contract, so Bayern are looking for Real Madrid to meet the 25 million release clause. Kroos is still only 24 years old and he will be a massive addition to a Madrid side that could use some help in the midfield.

Kroos said after Germany's World Cup victory Sunday that he will be joining Real Madrid, the Daily Mail reports.

The report notes that Kroos will cost the Spanish giants at least 20 million for a transfer fee, which seems relatively cheap for the 24 year old midfielder, who has already won the World Cup and the Champions League.

Kroos had two goals and an assist during Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in the semifinals of the World Cup on Tuesday.

Kroos' goals came within three minutes of each other in the first half, putting Germany up 3-0 and then 4-0. The dominating performance was completely shocking against the host nation, and Germany looks to be in their best form heading into the final.
