Toni Kroos' Brutal Response To Lionel Messi Making Shock Switch From Barcelona To Real Madrid

Toni Kroos has dropped a cheeky swipe at Lionel Messi by suggesting that he doesn't have the "cojones" to leave Barcelona for Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old Barcelona superstar sent shockwaves throughout the football world last month after submitting a transfer request.

Fast-forward to August and the Barcelona captain witnessed his side suffer a devastating 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Madrid star Kroos has swiftly shut down the idea that Messi would do the unthinkable by leaving the Camp Nou for a move to Los Blancos.

"I do not think he will come to Real Madrid, if I have to rule it out categorically," Kroos said on the Einfach mal Luppen podcast with his brother Felix.

Kroos added "that it could most likely be Pep and City" for Messi, but he also pointed out the benefit Madrid would gain from Barcelona losing their superstar captain.

"If one of those players no longer plays in the rival team, one can imagine that we do not consider it as something necessarily bad," the Germany international said.

"Messi away from Barcelona means that Barcelona lacks a total weapon."
