Toni Kroos’ future at Real Madrid has become a point of contention lately. While the club are determined to keep the midfielder for at least another year, the midfielder has reportedly considered the possibility of announcing an early retirement.

However, according to Diario SPORT, there is a possibility Kroos may continue playing, but not at the Santiago Bernabeu. This is because Manchester City are attempting to make a shock move for the German superstar.

Kroos’ current deal at the Bernabeu expires at the end of the season, meaning he is free to negotiate with any club in January, over a pre-contract agreement.

Manchester City are using this opportunity to lure the German into trying his luck in the Premier League. They are aware of the fact that Kroos has appeared apprehensive about accepting a renewal at Real Madrid so far and is currently in no hurry to make a decision.

Manchester City are ready to lure him in by offering him a staggering €13-14 million per season, which would be an improvement on his current salary of around €9 million per year.

Man City’s desire to sign the German is hardly surprising as the club are likely to part ways with Ilkay Gundogan. The former Dortmund starlet’s departure should create a massive void in the midfield department and that is where the Real Madrid superstar comes into the fray.

Kroos already shares a good relationship with Pep Guardiola, having played under him at Bayern Munich in the past.

However, the former German international star has revealed his desire to retire at Real Madrid time and time again in the past. And it would only come as a surprise to see him join any other club in the near future.

Although Antonio Rudiger has had success since joining Real Madrid last summer, the club are in need of more depth and players that can form the backbone of the defensive unit in the years to come.

As part of their plans, Real Madrid are prioritising a move for Josko Gvardiol in the coming summer, reports 90 Min.

The outlet suggests Gvardiol will be one of the most wanted prospects in the market, with both Real Madrid and Manchester City eyeing a move for the Croatian international come the end of the season.

Formerly of Dinamo Zagreb, Gvardiol has enjoyed immense success since his move to the Bundesliga in 2021. He has impressed onlookers with his skill, organisation and discipline, which, coupled with his versatility, make him an appealing target for any European giant.

Gvardiol was also one of the top performers at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, helping Croatia finish third in the competition. His performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid among the clubs who have been keeping an eye on the defender for a while now.

However, signing Gvardiol will be a tricky task for Los Blancos. The player still has a long-term contract at Leipzig and could cost up to €85 million, as reported by 90 Min. Not to mention, the competition from Man City could be significant.

Real Madrid have no shortage of alternatives, though, with the club notably closely monitoring Portuguese defensive whizkid Antonio Silva, among others. So it will be interesting to see how the Spanish giants approach the market in this coming summer.
