Toni Kroos is one among several Real Madrid players whose current contract with the club expires at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old veteran was in a similar situation last year as well and opted to sign a new one-year deal to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Now that he is into the final six months of his contract, speculations about his future – whether he will renew or retire – have once again been doing the rounds.

Real Madrid inform Kroos they will offer a one-year deal

Now, Mario Cortegana of The Athletic is reporting that Real Madrid are ready to offer Kroos a new one-year contract to keep him at the club until 2025.

As per the report, even though Los Blancos are yet to table a formal contract offer, club president Florentino Perez and CEO Jose Angel Sanchez have already informed the 34-year-old icon that there will be a proposal sent to him.

Despite there being concerns over his role at the start of the season, Kroos has once again emerged as a key player for Carlo Ancelotti.

The former Germany international has featured 29 times in all competitions, scoring one goal and setting up seven more.

Kroos yet to decide

However, even though the Real Madrid officials have made Kroos aware that he will be receiving a new contract, the player himself is yet to make a decision on his future.

The veteran superstar has always maintained that he plans on retiring at Real Madrid and that he does not wish to prolong his career for too long.

So, it remains to be seen whether he decides to sign a new deal or hang up his boots at the end of the season.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
