With just a few hours remaining until the 2024 UEFA Champions League final commences, fans around the world are excitedly buzzing, eagerly anticipating the clash between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, two of Europe’s football giants.

The game obviously holds a great deal of weight for the Merengues due to its grand occasion, but also because this will be Toni Kroos’ last game donning the royal white jersey.

Having announced his retirement a few weeks ago and being treated with a memorable send-off at the Santiago Bernabeu, Kroos has the opportunity to close his Madrid career on an incredible high.

Kroos is sticking to his decision

Ahead of the highly awaited final, Guillem Balague in conversation with Kroos said, “You can change your mind about retiring. If you change your mind, nobody will mind…”

Toni Kroos, with a smile, responded confidently, “No, it’s done,” and then laughed. “Once I take a decision, it’s done.” via CBS Sports Golazo.

Despite the affection and admiration from fans who wish to see him continue, Kroos remains firm in his decision to retire, demonstrating the same steely determination that has defined his career.

With the German starting the game against Borussia Dortmund, it promises to be a fitting end to his remarkable journey, allowing him to bid farewell on the grand stage where he has delivered countless iconic performances.

Kroos is sad to be parting ways

While the 34-year-old has no intention of reversing his decision, Kroos is still sad knowing that a glorious chapter of his career is ending.

“I am sad at the moment. Something that defined me, that gave so much fun and gave me so many positive memories is coming to an end,” Kroos confessed recently.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
