Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos is getting increasingly worried about his continuity beyond the ongoing season and Sergio Santos (h/t MadridXtra) writes that the reason is not only related to his personal preference but it is also linked to a series of injuries he has suffered in the last few seasons.

At 34 years of age, the German international remains a key member of Carlo Ancelotti’s blueprint and despite starting the ongoing season as an alternative, his importance has yet again been felt following injuries to Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni.

What is Toni Kroos’ future?

Kroos’ future at Real Madrid hinges entirely on his personal determination, as his relationship with club president Florentino Perez is unparalleled. 

Many years ago, he conveyed to the president that the moment he bid farewell to Real Madrid would mark the end of his playing career.

Furthermore, back in 2021, following Germany’s elimination from Euro 2021, the midfielder decided to call time on his international career just to focus on Real Madrid and this decision was aimed at prioritizing his physical well-being during international breaks.

What’s on his mind?

His primary focus is not to stretch his career beyond its optimal duration but to retire at a point where his passion and importance in the sport are felt.

However, an injury he suffered during the 2021-22 season continues to pose challenges and even the strain on his hamstring area gets aggravated during periods of continuous action.

Just like last season, Kroos does not wish to make a hurried decision. As such, a decision will revolve around assessing his role as the upcoming matches of the season unfold.

Kroos maintains the assurance that he can depart from the club at his own discretion. However, speculation is resurfacing within the club, suggesting that there might be a need to persuade him once more to postpone the decision to finish his career with Real Madrid.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
