Real Madrid are in active talks with some of their experienced players as they near the final stage of their respective careers.

One of them is Toni Kroos, whose current deal at the Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. The German has continued to play a key role in the club’s midfield setup and has shown no real signs of slowing down.

As such, the club plan on extending his deal for one more year. But there is a feeling around the Real Madrid camp that the player may retire rather than prolong his stay at the Bernabeu.

Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg has offered an update on the situation, stating that talks over a one-year extension for the German midfielder could begin soon.

He suggests that Kroos has an excellent relationship with Real Madrid and plans to end his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Carlo Ancelotti has recently confirmed it is up to the German to decide whether or not he wants to extend his contract. If he opts to run down his contract, the midfielder will retire from professional football in 2023. If he signs a new deal, the retirement will come in 2024.

Kroos had notably announced his retirement from international football last year, in the aftermath of Germany’s poor performance in Euro 2020. However, at the age of just 32, the former Bayern Munich superstar still has a few years left in him.

Given the way his Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric has been performing at the age of 37, Kroos has the potential to remain one of the club’s key midfield assets for the next couple of years.

The midfielder also retains an excellent relationship with the board, which could play a key role in convincing him to extend his career further and help Los Blancos continue their dominance in European football.

Real Madrid trio in danger of missing Villarreal game due to suspension

As Real Madrid look to restart the campaign following the end of the international break, all focus will be on the upcoming El Clasico in Copa del Rey on April 5.

However, before they take on their arch-rivals for a fourth time this year, Real Madrid must see off the challenge from Real Valladolid in La Liga on Sunday.

Given Barcelona’s 12-point advantage at the top of the table, La Liga appears to be a lost cause for Real Madrid right now. But that is no excuse for Carlo Ancelotti’s men to appear complacent, as they look to push for a late title charge.

However, heading into this contest, three Real Madrid players proceed with caution as they are running the risk of missing out on the next league game against Villarreal due to yellow cards.

The three players in question are Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Carvajal, and Dani Ceballos. All three of these players have picked up four yellow cards in La Liga this term. Therefore, picking up another booking against Valladolid will rule them out in the next game.

Camavinga, in particular, has been a vital part of the Real Madrid squad since the turn of the year, impressing onlookers with his performances and versatility.

Carvajal, too, is a critical option at right-back and his experience could go a long way in helping Real Madrid end the league campaign on a positive note. Not to mention, the club lack the services of a reliable alternative, which has led to links with Reece James this coming summer.

Ceballos, on the other hand, has been one of the emerging stars this year. The midfielder’s performances have been excellent lately, and he would not want to lose any momentum by picking up a suspension ahead of the important Villarreal game next week.
