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.

Ancelotti devises plan to prepare Real Madrid defensive ace for Bayern Munich clash

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
