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

In a huge development, David Ornstein of The Athletic is reporting that Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement over the transfer of midfield sensation Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old prodigy had become one of Los Blancos’ main priorities for the summer transfer window and the club had been working on a deal for him for months now.

And after seeing off competition from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, the Merengues managed to reach an agreement with Bellingham over personal terms last month.

Talks with Dortmund were put on hold until the Bundesliga season was over, but things have accelerated in recent times. Earlier this week, reports emerged claiming that positive talks had been held between the two clubs.

And now, Real Madrid have reached a total agreement with Dortmund for Bellingham’s signing. As per the report, the transfer fee for the teenage sensation will exceed €100 million, making it one of the most expensive operations in the history of both clubs.

The deal has not been signed yet, but it is considered only a mere formality at this point. Soon, the England international will undergo his medicals in the coming days as well before completing the transfer to Real Madrid.

Bellingham might not be the only Englishman to end up at the Spanish capital this summer as Los Blancos also have their sights set on a move for his national team captain, Harry Kane.

Indeed, the 29-year-old Tottenham Hotspur superstar is a primary target for Real Madrid as a replacement for Karim Benzema, who completed his transfer to Al Ittihad. The Merengues are understood to be preparing an €80 million offer for him, but it could fall short of Spurs’ valuation.
