Toni Kroos’ sudden announcement of his retirement from professional football has taken the Real Madrid fraternity by storm, with even the first-team stars baffled by his decision.

Shortly after his announcement, a host of Kroos’ teammates publicly expressed their disappointment and grief, including Jude Bellingham.

Taking to social media, the young midfielder wished the veteran on his decision while expressing that spending ‘just a year was not enough’.

Toni Kroos replies to Bellingham

Shortly after Bellingham’s post on Instagram, Toni Kroos has now issued a response to the Englishman.

Commenting on the same post, Kroos heaped praise on Bellingham, even suggesting that he is ready to take over the mantle at Real Madrid.

“Thanks, my friend. More years together would have been unfair. Enjoyed every minute since you joined! You are more than ready to take over! At age 20,” Kroos commented.

Bellingham has indeed become an overnight start at Real Madrid since joining the club from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

In his maiden season at the Bernabeu, the midfielder has emerged as one of the club’s most productive players, racking up 23 goals and 12 assists in all competitions.

Kroos’ message to Bellingham also aligns well with Real Madrid’s reported plans for next season, with Bellingham being identified as the replacement for the German veteran.

That means the former Dortmund starlet is set to appear in a deeper role next season, while the likes of Eduardo Camavinga and Arda Guler should receive more game-time.

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.
