Eager to end his career at Real Madrid, Toni Kroos is risky regarding the date of his departure, while his contract runs until June 2023.
With Luka Modric and Casemiro at his side, Toni Kroos has entered the history of Real Madrid by winning in particular three League of consecutive champions. This season, the German international remains an indisputable starter in the eyes of Carlo Ancelotti , evidenced by his 20 appearances in all competitions under the Merengue jersey. “They both still play at a very high level. They are always the best in the world for me, confided last November Carlo Ancelotti about Toni Kroos and Luka Modric . It must be said that the dynamics of the three midfielders surprises me. They do things that I don't even ask, they do it naturally. They have been great in the past but are still part of the present and the near future. However, the future of the Germany international is already subject to some questions in the Spanish capital. Toni Kroos has just celebrated his 32th birthday, and his contract will expire in June 2023, thus justifying the will of Real Madrid to renew its midfield, reflected in particular by the arrival of Eduardo Camavinga last summer. Interviewed by Sky Sport, Toni Kroos clearly shows his desire to end his career at the Casa Blanca, without giving a precise date.
“I cannot answer this question today”
“During the last extension, I deliberately chose the length of the contract, I would then be 33 years old and it would be a good age to reflect on what will happen next. I don't need to procrastinate, I put my cards on the table. This is my eighth season at Real and it's an amazing relationship that I would never jeopardize with any poker hand and I think both sides do. I made it clear that I wanted to end my career here and that's what will happen. I can't answer that question yet today, whether it will be in 2023 or one or two years later. We are not going to worry too much, I still have a year and a half on the contract and everything is going very well, I certainly will not think of anything else. I know what I have at the club and they know what they have with me. We will go towards each other in a relaxed atmosphere. The physical and the envy are the basis of everything. I still feel very good, but it is necessary A) that the level is good B) that the body follows and C) that the desire is there. And if all this is there, then we will discuss one day and if not, I still have a contract until 2023 ”, confides Toni Kroos .
