Speaking to El Chiringuito TV, Real Madrid midfielder and icon Toni Kroos has opened up on his future, stating that the club are already aware of what he wants.

Kroos is in the final six months of his contract with Los Blancos and is yet to decide whether he continues for another year or not.

The 33-year-old has previously spoken of retiring when he is on top and it has sparked speculations about the German midfielder deciding to hang up his boots at the end of the season if he is not offered a prominent role in the team for next year.

But, Los Blancos continue to hold Kroos in the highest of regard and want to keep hold of him for another year.

Reports have suggested that Kroos has asked the club for time until June to decide and make a final call on his continuity at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But, speaking to El Chiringuito, the midfielder said that the decision will not take long and added that Real Madrid already know what he wants.

“It won’t take me long to make the decision. The relationship with the club is fantastic and they already know what I want,” he said.

With Kroos and his long-time midfield partner Luka Modric not getting any younger, there have been whispers about how they cannot play at the highest level together.

But the German icon dismissed that line of thought, as he said: “I have no doubt we can still play together. When we don’t play you can see it, it’s another football. Maybe we win, but it’s different.”

“We are aware there are other players who also deserve minutes but we’re still here (laughs).”

Kroos has been at Real Madrid since 2014, when he arrived from Bayern Munich. In close to nine years at the club, the former Germany international has won every possible trophy and has etched his name in the history of the Merengues.

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.
