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' 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.
