A huge bombshell dropped earlier today as Toni Kroos announced that he would be retiring from football once the UEFA Euro 2024 is over.

It means that the midfield icon’s time at Real Madrid will be coming to a closure at the end of the season, with the German superstar opting not to renew his contract.

One of the greatest modern-day midfielders, Kroos has enjoyed an exceptional ten-year career at Real Madrid, winning a host of titles and trophies and could bring down the curtains with another Champions League triumph.

Naturally, after the announcement was made, Kroos started to trend across social media platforms, with many teammates, present and former, and fans all congratulating him on an exceptional career and expressing their sadness over his impending retirement.

Never one to miss out on an opportunity to make a clever quip, Kroos wrote on X an hour after the announcement: “I’m trending at least?”

Kroos signed for Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014, right after having won the FIFA World Cup with Germany.

The midfielder cost the Merengues just €25 million in transfer fees, and will undoubtedly go down as one of the biggest bargains, considering what he has achieved during his time in the Spanish capital.

Part of the iconic midfield trident alongside Luka Modric and Casemiro, Kroos played an integral role in the glory that Real Madrid achieved in the late 2010s and the early 2020s.

Even this season, despite being 34, the veteran superstar continues to be a key part of Carlo Ancelotti’s setup. As such, it does not come as a surprise that his decision to move on has left the club ‘devastated’.

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.
