Estadio de La Ceramica saw an unusual span of ninety minutes on Saturday night when Real Madrid were thoroughly outclassed. Villarreal seemed to be several notches superior to Carlo Ancelotti’s men, putting the defending champions under immense pressure.

Slowly, mistakes crept into the visitors’ game and they eventually crumbled to a 2-1 defeat. Yet, if there was one player who maintained his high standard through the storm last night, it was Toni Kroos.

The German International is the engine of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, and rumours of his possible retirement at the end of the season have taken the world by shock. After all, he still has a lot to offer at the highest level at the age of 33.

According to reports from Fabrizio Romano via AMP, there are good chances that Kroos will continue at Real Madrid beyond this season. The feeling at the club’s offices is positive and a definitive statement is expected in the coming month.

The player’s decision is key for Real Madrid’s future planning for his departure would force the club to splash the cash on reinforcement in the summer. Jude Bellingham is already on the team’s agenda, but the veteran’s retirement could push them to scout another talent.

The 33-year-old has been indispensable for Ancelotti this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists in 13 La Liga appearances. He averages a whopping 95 touches and two key passes per game in addition to his six defensive actions.

The club have put a proposal for a one-year extension on the table for Kroos and expect a reply at least by the beginning of February.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
