Toni Kroos has never been one to hesitate to take big decisions. Last year, the midfielder retired from the German national team after their exit from the UEFA Euro 2020 with just over a year left for the next FIFA World Cup.

Given that he was just 31 years of age, it came as a shock to many.

Kroos has always been clear about his desire to hang up his boots while still at the top of his game. In recent weeks, rumours have sprung up that the German is contemplating retirement at the end of the season when his contract expires, but many feel that it is too early for a player of his calibre.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, Kroos is considering making the final decision about his future by January. He still has doubts about which is the right path to take but will make a call soon.

At 32 years of age, the former Bayern Munich player has been one of Real Madrid’s best and most consistent players this season. The quality of his performances has only been getting better with every passing game.

Losing him would undoubtedly be a big blow for Carlo Ancelotti’s side. Real Madrid see no two ways about it. The European champions have already prepared a proposal for a contract extension and the ball is now in the player’s park.

Earlier this week, when asked about Kroos’ future, Carlo Ancelotti revealed that his sixth sense said the player would continue next season.

“He will think about it in January or February. Personally, I feel that Toni will continue here at Real Madrid. It’s his decision, we will see. He will think about it and then announce his plans.”

But, at the moment, Kroos is still undecided over whether to continue at Real Madrid or move on or retire altogether. Either ways, the report states that a decision on his future could arrive by January, with Los Blancos still hopeful of keeping him at the club.

Manchester City join race to sign €40 million-rated Real Madrid target

Manchester City have now joined the ever-growing list of admirers for Celta Vigo midfielder and Real Madrid target Gabri Veiga, reports Jack Gaughan of the Daily Mail.

The 20-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the breakout stars of La Liga this season, having impressed with his goalscoring abilities from the centre of the park. Indeed, the youngster has notched up nine goals in La Liga and his exploits have made the giants of Europe sit up and take notice.

Real Madrid are said to be interested in Veiga’s services heading into the summer. The Merengues have Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Dani Ceballos on expiring contracts and it is unlikely that all three will be renewed, especially with Jude Bellingham being on the agenda.

In case of Modric and Kroos, even if they stay, it will likely be for only a season at the most. Hence, Los Blancos could require more than one central midfielder come summer, with Veiga emerging as an option.

The 20-year-old was also attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid. Now, Manchester City have also jumped on the bandwagon of clubs interested in Veiga’s services.

The Cityzens, who are battling Real Madrid for Bellingham as well, are set to lose Ilkay Gundogan in the summer when his contract expires. Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva’s future is also far from certain, thus necessitating the signing of another midfielder.

Veiga has a release clause worth €40 million in his contract with Celta Vigo, which should not be a problem for either Real Madrid or Manchester City.

Celta Vigo president Carlos Mourino recently admitted that the midfielder could leave the club in the summer, saying:

“We don’t want to sell Gabri Veiga, but they are going to buy him from us. And we can’t do anything there. We know some of his offers and it is impossible to reach them.

“There are several teams behind Gabri. Real Madrid? They haven’t asked us, we don’t know if they will have called the player. Of the top 10 in the Premier League, four have asked about him.”

It will certainly be interesting to see whether Real Madrid are prepared to go all out for Veiga’s signing or decide to entirely focus on their pursuit of Bellingham.
