Revealed: Real Madrid board’s message to Toni Kroos over contract renewal

An insight into the stance of the powers that be at Spanish giants Real Madrid, when it comes to the contract situation of Toni Kroos, has been provided this evening.

The info comes courtesy of Mario Cortegana of The Athletic, who has confirmed that the final decision on his future has been left firmly in the hands of Kroos himself.

The German international’s current terms in Madrid, of course, are due to expire in the summer.

As much comes as Kroos continues to ponder early retirement from the game, at just 34 years of age.

All associated with Real have long made clear their hope that the midfield maestro will ultimately opt to prolong his career for another season.

Kroos, for his part, continues to act as an absolutely pivotal member of Carlo Ancelotti’s Blancos squad, remaining, on his day, one of world football’s finest in his role.

In turn, Florentino Pérez and his team of directors have long been locked in talks with the former Bayern Munich man, and his entourage.

In fact, as per the aforementioned Mario Cortegana, a renewal offer has been on the table for time now.

This comes with it having been made clear to Kroos ‘that he can renew his contract whenever he wishes’.
