After a long wait, it appears Real Madrid are finally pushing ahead with the contract situations of their star players.

First on the list could be Toni Kroos, with the midfielder signing a renewal until 2024. The contract has been signed, sealed and ready to go, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian transfer expert suggests the official statement will be pending for the time being as is the case for Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior. Benzema has reportedly signed a new until 2024 despite concerns over his fitness.

Luka Modric is another player likely to pen a new contract. Despite his age, the midfielder will continue at the Bernabeu for at least another year before making the last step in his career.

As for Toni Kroos, he was reportedly contemplating early retirement, having enjoyed a stellar spell at Real Madrid. He was waiting to listen to the club and the role they are offering for the season ahead.

There are reports that suggest the midfielder has refused to entertain a longer contract despite being offered one. It serves as an indicator of the player’s desire to potentially retire at the end of next season or at least he is considering doing so.

Kroos’ renewal could be a major boost for Real Madrid, especially in the midst of reports that quote a high valuation for top target for Jude Bellingham. Not to mention, the Englishman is also courted by a host of other European giants, including Manchester City.

The retention of both Kroos and Modric, therefore, could go a long way in helping Madrid complete a transition and pave way for the new guns such as Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni in the years to come.

    Good news! But I dont undetstand why you people are considering English clubs as a threat to Bellingham signing most especially Man City. The simple fact is if Madrid want him city can not put bid them because city have never paid more than 100m for a player while Madrid have done so. I think all this so called deep pocket is just one of those english media hype, therefore I think the only thing that can stop Bellingham from joining Madrid is not about how much city can pay it about desire of Madrid and the player

Real Madrid superstar reveals how advice from Brazil legend helped him improve

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
