Toni Kroos made his debut with Bayern Munich's first team at the age of 2007, but subsequently spent 18 months out on loan to Bayer Leverkusen. Shortly after the 2014 World Cup, he moved from Bayern to Real Madrid.
This German international, who was a member of Joachim Löw's team that won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, plays his club football with Spanish giants Real Madrid. He can play as either an offensive or defensive midfielder, and is the only German player to have won the Champions League with two different clubs.

With his job on the line, Zinedine Zidane will be expecting Toni Kroos, Cristiano Ronaldo and co to deliver against Neymar and PSG. Meanwhile, there is a very German flavor to Liverpool's squad as the Reds head to Porto.
The Champions League returns on Tuesday, with Bayern Munich the only Bundesliga team left standing. But there's plenty of German interest, with four of the country's top central midfielders clashing in the next two days.
