Real Madrid will be eager to welcome new faces in their ranks this summer as big-hitters like Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies are expected to join the club this summer.

But the continuity of key stars will be equally important, as the Merengues have been especially keen on tying down Toni Kroos at the club.

It has already been widely reported that the German maestro has agreed to stay in the Spanish Capital for an additional season until 2025, yet an official statement has been pending.

Kroos will announce decision after second leg against Bayern Munich

Now, according to Cadena SER (h/t Madrid Zone), after next week’s game against Bayern Munich, Toni Kroos will officially announce that he will stay at Real Madrid.

Kroos has been a crucial part of Real Madrid’s midfield since joining the team in 2014, known for his precise passing, vision, and intelligence on the pitch.

This was especially exemplified last night against his former club Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, as he played a picture-perfect pass to assist Vinicius for the opener.

Over the course of his remarkable decade-long stint at the club, he has won 21 titles in all, the most notable of which are three league championships and four Champions League victories.

As such, the decision to stay with Real Madrid is seen as a positive development for the club. Real Madrid will be aiming to secure a win in the second leg against Bayern Munich to ensure the news of Kroos’ continuity comes at an opportune time.

Kroos will be present in upcoming Euros

In addition to confirming his future with Real Madrid, the 34-year-old star will also play in the Euros with Germany, having reversed his retirement recently.

Kroos gave up playing for his country in 2021 following Die Mannschaft’s underwhelming performance at the UEFA Euro 2020.

But as he continues to be an integral player domestically, he feels inspired to don the national jersey again, bringing his experience back to the German squad as they prepare for the Euro 2024 on home soil.

Real Madrid’s most crucial endeavour of the season edges closer as they gear up to take Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final.

Emotions are sure to be running high not only because of the monumental occasion; but also because a certain Toni Kroos will be playing his final game in the royal white jersey.

The German will be parting ways after enjoying 10 trophy-filled seasons and will aim to add another to his illustrious cabinet before he travels to Germany for the Euros in what will officially be his last rodeo in professional football.

Now, speaking in the build-up to the grand showdown with Borussia, Kroos has given his two cents on the team’s preparation and the morale inside the locker room.

On the upcoming Champions League final

Kroos acknowledged it felt incredible to play his sixth final for the Merengues, but claimed none of this success would have been possible without the efforts of a cohesive team.

“My sixth final? It’s a beautiful thing. I was lucky to play for a team that was able to achieve these successes.

“I am part of this, but I do not like to be alone, there is always the team. Without a team, it is impossible to do this,” Kroos remarked during an interview with RMTV.

Additionally, the German midfielder argued that Real Madrid were in high spirits today and they have the potential to surprise people.

“Today I saw everyone enjoying and looking forward to. The final is on Saturday. There is a competitor that may surprise some people.”

Furthermore, Kroos is eager to close his Real Madrid career on a high and claims this will be his last effort before riding off into the sunset.

“This will be my last effort for Real Madrid. Hala Madrid,” he exclaimed.

On his farewell game

Kroos played his final game at the Santiago Bernabeu against Real Betis recently, and his emotional substitution in the 86th minute marked a poignant farewell.

As Kroos came off the pitch, he confessed that seeing his daughter cry was a difficult pill to swallow and he will carry these special moments till the very end.

“I tried not to cry on Saturday but when I saw my daughter cry it changed. It was very difficult for me. I will never forget these moments. I will remember forever, my children and my wife too,” he said.

The 34-year-old also mentioned that whenever he feels like experiencing a tear-jerker, he will take a trip down memory lane by looking at the farewell pictures.

“Saturday was the night of a lifetime. If one day at home I want to cry, I will look at the farewell pictures.”
