Toni Kroos has been one of the top midfielders of his generation and has been one of the major causes of Real Madrid legacy which has been built by them over the years. Now, he has decided to take that legacy and might going on for the “Los Blancos” as he has confirmed his contract renewal which will see him at the helm for one more year.
Kroos confirms stay for one more year
It was once a legendary midfield troika of Modric, Kroos and Casemiro which had been the nightmare of opponent defenders. All three of them had an equal contribution in guiding Real Madrid to their consecutive Champions League victories. Impeccable passing of the ball and accurate dribbling through the legs of opponents was their forte.
After Casemiro left for Manchester United last season, the trio was demoted in to a duo, but veterans Kroos and Modric showed their class in Europe’s elite, with immaculate passes and dangerous strikes. Former German international Kroos now confirms of his contract renewal at Real Madrid for one more year, as he had been on talks with the club board since the starting of this year.
Despite Real Madrid having a throng of youth swarming the midfield in the likes of Camavinga, Tchouameni, Carlo Ancelotti wants Kroos and his veteran midfield partner Modric to retain their place in the first team.
Reportedly, Madrid is also looking for signing Jude Bellingham in the next season, which will strengthen the midfield options for Ancelotti, with a perfect blend of youth and experience that might grant them success in the coming seasons.
“Go on vacation”
Reportedly, Kroos had already talked about the renewal in the club many days back, but maybe Real was waiting for the end of the season. When asked about his contract news, he said, “I have to ask the club when they are going to announce my renewal, because I have to go on vacation at some point!”, as per Spanish football daily Diario AS.
If his midfield mate Modric also renews his contract before the start of next season, he might be accompanying Kroos and both of them would be perfect guides to take the enterprising talent Real has now, forward, so that they can become the powerhouses of Europe once again.
