Toni Kroos has chosen to retire from the national team to extend his club career in 2021. He remains a key player for Real Madrid.
Real Madrid previously opted to change plans with cases over the age of 30. Therefore, the champion of the Champions League has decided to sign another 12 months with Luka Modric. Next time, the next move of the Bernabeu team is to keep Kroos.
Casemiro’s move to Manchester United has put an end to the iconic Madrid midfield trio, but Kroos remains crucial to Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.
The 32-year-old has stated that he wants to stay in the Spanish capital, but he has always been realistic about his fitness. That is what makes the former Bayern Munich midfielder fear that he cannot continue to contribute to Real.
Even so, Los Blancos are ready to offer a contract extension for another year beyond June 2023. According to a report from Marca, Kroos is still reviewing the offer and finalizing a decision in February. Ancelotti confidently convinced him to stay, with contract details yet to be finalized.
