Toni Kroos has been one of Real Madrid’s best performers, winning four UEFA Champions League titles and becoming a legend at the club, and the former Bayern Munich midfielder has made it clear he wants to retire from Los Blancos.
His current contract expires in June 2023, but Kroos is determined to get an extension that will put him in a position to finish his career in the Spanish capital.
“I deliberately chose the term of the contract when I last extended it, because I was 33 years old and it would be good to think about how I would continue,” Kroos told Sky Sport Deutschland.
“However, there is no need to think about it, there is a wonderful relationship with a team that I would not risk because of speculation.
“I think that is the case for both sides, I want to finish my work here and it will happen that way, when that comes I will not be able to respond properly if that will be in 2023 or a year or two later. ”
Tony Kroos has been a key player for Carlo Ancelotti in 2021/22 and there are no signs of this stopping, although the emergence of Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde.
“I know what I have at the club and they know what they have in me,” continued Kroos.
“I still feel good, but you have to adapt to the level your body is in, and you have to be passionate.”
Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland have been named as two key goalscorers to move Real Madrid to the summer, with the former Bayer Leverkusen on loan believes this is normal for the Los Merengues club.
“Because of the nature of their contract and their level, they are the most interested players in the market,” Kroos explained.
“Real Madrid is always fighting for the best players and they are both. I will not say what will happen because, in the end, I am not the president.”
