We won't see Toni Kroos on the football field for a long time. There are now rumors in Spain that the 2014 world champion could end his career as early as next summer.
Toni Kroos has been playing for Real Madrid since 2014. He won everything with the royals - the handle pot four times. His time with the Blancos, which can already be described as a kind of era, was characterized by his two congenial midfield neighbors Casemiro and Luka Modric. While the Brazilian made the move to Manchester in the summer, Modric is still at Kroos' side. The Croatian doesn't seem to tire even at 37.
Kroos, who is five years his junior, will definitely no longer play at this age. He announced that two years ago: "I'm certainly not a player who plays until he's 38. My contract runs until the summer of 2023 when I'm 33 - that's a good age to decide what I want to do In any case, it won't be much longer."
His contract with Real Madrid runs until 2024. Then everything speaks for the end of the career of the world champion from 2014. The Spanish AS now wants to know that the 32-year-old is even thinking about a line in the coming summer. The same newspaper recently reported that Kroos is very likely to stay until the end of his contract.
Either way, it won't be long before the title collector hangs up his shoes and has more time to devote to his family. In the meantime, he doesn't need to worry about his successors with the Royals. With Eduardo Camavinga, Fede Valverde and Aurélien Tchouaméni, the potential midfield trio of the future is already in the squad. In addition, Real is also in the race for Jude Bellingham.
