Toni Kroos has been a subject of speculation recently over his future at Real Madrid. With the midfielder’s current contract at Santiago Bernabeu expiring at the end of the season, it is uncertain whether or not he will continue beyond 2023.

Real Madrid, for their part, are keen on extending the German’s contract as he has continued to play at the top level and can still continue for at least two or three more years.

A recent report from Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra) has offered an update on Kroos’ situation, suggesting that Real Madrid have prepared a new contract offer for the former Bayern Munich starlet, in their attempts to tie him down to a new deal.

Although the details of the new deal have not been mentioned, it will presumably be a one-year extension given the fact that Real Madrid have a strict policy not to offer players over 30 more than a year-long contract extension.

The Whites are hoping Kroos to continue one more year at Santiago Bernabeu as his leadership, experience and composure in the middle of the park have been integral to the club’s success over the past eight years.

Kroos has indeed featured in almost 400 competitive matches for Real Madrid and remains one of the best midfielders in Europe. His continued presence in the midfield could go a long way in not only helping the club retain its success but also guiding younger individuals such as Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.

In the event of Kroos declining the contract extension, however, the German is expected to retire, rather than move elsewhere to continue his career. The midfielder had notably announced his retirement from international football last year, shortly after the World Cup.

Brazil ready to wait until June for Carlo Ancelotti – Romano

Earlier today, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti spoke openly about the rumours linking him to the vacant Brazil national team job.

The Italian tactician has emerged as the top target for the Selecao to succeed Tite, who was let go of after the FIFA World Cup 2022.

The president of the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF), Ednaldo Rodrigues, has made it clear that Ancelotti is the preferred candidate for the job.

Reacting to the same, Ancelotti, during his press conference today, said: “The reality is that the Brazilian national team wants me and I love it and I’m very excited about it, but then I have to respect the contract I have and I want to fulfil it.”

“I’m not surprised that there are these rumours. It doesn’t affect me, it doesn’t worry me. I’m just focused on fulfilling my duties with this club and with this team. I’m still here until Real Madrid allow me to stay.”

While the 63-year-old might be saying that he wishes to fulfil his contract at Real Madrid, which expires in 2024, he did not shy away from stating that he was happy about Brazil’s interest in him.

And now, Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Zone) is reporting that the Selecao are ready to wait until June to go ahead with the appointment of Ancelotti.

While the Italian tactician remains in control at this point at Real Madrid, things could change drastically over the next couple of months.

The La Liga title looks already out of the Merengues’ hands while they are also trailing Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final. If they fail to go all the way in the UEFA Champions League as well, Florentino Perez could decide to make some changes, starting with Ancelotti.

Hence, Brazil are happy to wait patiently until June and see how the situation is at that point and whether Ancelotti is available. With no major matches coming up for the Selecao until September, they can afford to wait as well.
