Today, June 30, is officially the final day of the 2023/24 campaign and tomorrow will mark the start of the 2024/25 period.

That means the contracts of almost all players playing in Europe, whose deals were supposed to end at the end of the season, are set to expire today.

This rule applies to La Liga as well, meaning today marks the final day of several Real Madrid stars, including Toni Kroos.

Kroos’ message to Real Madrid fans

Toni Kroos has sent a heartfelt message to Real Madrid fans, on account of his final day as a Real Madrid player.

“Today is officially my last day as a Real Madrid player. Feels weird but I’ll always be one of you. Forever grateful,” Kroos wrote on his social media handles.

Needless to say, felicitations poured in for the German international, who is currently in action for his nation in the ongoing Euro 2024.

Kroos’ Real Madrid teammate and compatriot Antonio Rudiger commented, “Legend”. The same message was echoed by scores of Real Madrid fans as they showed their love to the legendary midfielder.

Today is indeed Kroos’ final day at Real Madrid. But it is also his last day as a club footballer, as the midfielder announced his retirement from football after the end of Euro 2024.

That means Kroos, in a best-case scenario, can only play in three more matches as Germany have already reached the quarter-final of Euro 2024.

Kroos, who ended his club career with Real Madrid’s 15th UCL title, will look to end his international career on a high too, helping Germany seal the Euros for the first time since 1996.

Real Madrid realized one of their biggest sporting and commercial ambitions by signing Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer.

Adhering faithfully to their Galacticos philosophy, signing Mbappe exemplified that the Merengues pursue not only elite talent but also renowned figures who carry global recognition.

While Mbappe has yet to play a single minute for the club, he is already busy breaking records at the club.

Mbappe’s shirt sales are through the roof

Indeed, according to El Chiringuito, within a mere day of its launch, Kylian Mbappe’s jersey sales have soared to an astounding 450% higher than those of Jude Bellingham.

Given Bellingham’s huge name in football, this impressive statistic highlights a fervent demand for the French star’s jerseys among supporters worldwide.

Moreover, the club’s online store has reaped substantial financial rewards, generating an impressive sum of €800,000 solely from the sale of Mbappe’s jerseys.

On top of that, they have sold more than 7,000 Mbappe shirts at the club’s physical store which will have provided further revenue boost.

Considering that the 2018 World Cup winner will don the number 9 shirt adds to the incredible demand, as several greats of the game have represented this number in the past, including Karim Benzema most recently.

Real Madrid struggling to keep up with the demand

Reports have mentioned that Real Madrid are appealing for patience from their fans as they handle the high volume of sales.

In fact, Real Madrid eventually posted a note on their website warning that delivery delays of up to 4-6 extra weeks may occur due to the great demand for Mbappe’s kits.

Tuesday, July 16 is set aside for his formal presentation at the Santiago Bernabeu, where a full house is expected to greet him, potentially with a large chunk of the fans wearing Mbappe jerseys.
