According to a report from ABC (h/t Madrid Xtra), a top Premier League club have made an enquiry about the contract situation of Real Madrid legend Toni Kroos.

The 33-year-old midfielder is in the final five months of his current contract with Los Blancos and is yet to make a decision on his next move.

It has given way to speculations over his future and it seems like a top club from England has taken a keen interest in Kroos’ situation.

The report does not specify the name of the club, but states that they have asked about the former German international’s contract situation and future.

However, it further claims that the English team were met with rejection from Kroos as he made it clear that he would either continue at Real Madrid beyond this season or retire. The midfielder has no desire to join a different club by leaving the Merengues.

That stance is not something new. Kroos has, on a number of occasions in the past, has made it clear that he does not want to play for a different club at this stage in his career. Either he continues at Real Madrid for another year or hangs up his boots at the end of the season.

A decision, however, is yet to be made, even though the club are ready to hand him a one-year deal. One condition that the German ace has is that he does not want to be a bit-part player and will only consider continuing if he remains a prominent part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans.

So, it remains to be seen how the situation develops in the coming weeks.

It hasn’t been a good week for Real Madrid, who look all set to relinquish their Spanish league title to arch-rivals Barcelona come the end of the season, following a narrow defeat to the Blaugrana at the weekend.

However, as Real Madrid enter the international break, there is some positive news for Carlo Ancelotti and his men.

As reported by Toni Juanmarti, Barcelona look set to miss out on their two star players in Ousmane Dembele and Pedri due to injury, ahead of the upcoming second-leg semifinal tie against Real Madrid, in Copa Del Rey.

Real Madrid are heading into this game with a 1-0 defeat in the first-leg, meaning they must beat Barça with a two-goal margin in order to book a place in the final. The absence of both Pedri and Dembele, to that end, could be a major boost for Ancelotti.

Pedri, who was expected to return to full fitness for the second leg, has suffered a relapse. It has set his return back to three or four weeks late, meaning the youngster will not return until the April 23 tie against Atletico Madrid.

The situation is not much different for Ousmane Dembele. The explosive attacker is recovering slower than expected and though he was tipped to return in the league game against Real Madrid this month, he remains a major doubt for this Copa Del Rey tie.

However, Barcelona did register a narrow victory over Los Blancos even without these two individuals, so the task is definitely cut out for Ancelotti and his men as they look to exact revenge against the Catalans in Copa Del Rey next month.
