Speaking to Marca, Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Toni Kroos said: “The Premier League has not won an international title this year.
“Television money has been significantly higher in England for years and yet it hasn’t resulted in English teams winning everything.
“Thank God not all players look only at salary but also at winning.”
Kroos’ ever-reliable midfield partner of many years, Casemiro, left Real Madrid for Manchester United last summer on a £60 million transfer.
The Red Devils reportedly doubled the Brazilian’s salary although the 30-year-old midfielder that money wasn’t the key factor in his Old Trafford move.
