Chelsea have entered the race to sign Toni Kroos and have offered the Bayern Munich midfielder a salary worth £6.4million per year, according to AS.

The Spanish newspaper claim Chelsea are battling with Barcelona and Real Madrid for the Germany international’s signature, although they are yet to agree a fee with Bayern.

Kroos’ future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months, with the German champions seemingly reluctant to meet his contract demands.

Manchester United were linked with Kroos before agreeing a deal for Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera, but AS claim it’s now a three-way battle between the Blues and the two Spanish giants.

Barcelona are hoping to exploit their good relationship with Bayern after selling them Thiago Alcantara last summer, but AS say Chelsea are ready to flex their financial muscles and offer Kroos over £120,000 per week, despite having already signed Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.

Kroos is out of contract next summer, meaning Bayern could be forced to cash in rather than lose him for nothing in 2015.
