In a major development, Real Madrid midfielder and legend, Toni Kroos, has confirmed that he is about to sign a new contract with the club and prolong his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos’ current contract with Real Madrid stands to run out at the end of the ongoing campaign. It had sparked rumours about a potential retirement for the former German international, as he has made it clear that he does not want to play for another club after Real Madrid.

It was believed that Los Blancos had put forth an offer for Kroos a while ago, but the midfielder was thinking about various factors, including his role and importance in the side next season, before signing a new contract.

However, reports over the past few days have been claiming that Kroos is set to renew with Real Madrid for one more year.

And the midfielder himself confirmed as much during a chat with PrimeVideo Germany after the 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

“Everything is on the right track,” he said, as quoted by COPE.

This comes as confirmation that Kroos is set to renew his contract and an agreement could already be in place between the two parties over a new deal.

The 33-year-old midfielder continues to perform exceptionally despite his advancing years and is still a key cog in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup.

Kroos has been at Real Madrid for almost nine years now, having arrived from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014, immediately after winning the FIFA World Cup with Germany.

Ever since, he has been a permanent fixture in the middle of the park for the Merengues, playing an integral role in the immense success that the club have achieved over the past decade.

His imminent renewal is certainly a boost for Real Madrid, irrespective of whether they sign Jude Bellingham or not in the summer.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
