Real Madrid’s midfield has been the subject of much speculation among the media and the fans for quite some time. Though, it was usually written off as something that might happen in the far off future.
This used to be true, but now it’s not valid. For what may be his last season with the club, Luka Modric will suit up, while Casemiro’s long-term replacement, Aurelien Tchouameni, has already arrived.
To clarify Toni Kroos’s future, Sergio Santos has provided the following statement. Even though Los Blancos would love to have the German back for another season at the Bernabeu, they know it’s highly unlikely.Real Madrid recognises that Kroos’ decision to go could change if he continues to perform at a world-class level next season. The player now has all the cards, and if he wants to keep going, he can sign a new contract.The World Cup winner has long expressed optimism regarding the future of his playing career. By retiring from the national team, Kroos has made it clear that he does not plan to continue playing into his late thirties.
When his contract with Real Madrid expires at the end of the upcoming season, the midfielder will be 33 years old. The likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde, and Tchouameni are pounding on the door, so he may decide to call it a career at the end of the season.
He is also considering playing outside of Europe, perhaps in the MLS. However, considering his feelings about retiring, such seems unlikely.
Last season, Kroos made 28 league appearances for the champions and contributed to two goals and an assist. Recently, he played nearly the entire game as Los Blancos won the UEFA Super Cup by defeating Eintracht Frankfurt.
