Real Madrid are afraid Toni Kroos is going to follow in the footsteps of Zinedine Zidane

Toni Kroos has turned down the chance to renew his contract at Real Madrid even though his current deal expires in the summer of 2023. It’s understood the German wants to see how he feels next season before committing to another year at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid, according to Mundo Deportivo, are afraid Kroos is going to follow in the footsteps of his former coach Zinedine Zidane – leave the club if he doesn’t feel comfortable or guaranteed of his place in the first team. Kroos is still a key player for Carlo Ancelotti but he did lose prominence toward the crucial back end of the 2021/22 season.

Madrid have signed Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni in consecutive summers and they, together with Fede Valverde, are the future of Madrid’s midfield. Kroos wants to see how that transition is managed next season with regards to himself, Luka Modric and Casemiro. If he thinks the time has come to leave, that’s what he’ll do.

  1. Time is ripe to move on from Kroos Modric Casemiro mid.
    Let the young players carry on, they have shown that they are capable.
    Its ok, even Pele was replaced by someone younger and more fit.

  2. To me we still Luka Modric,Casemro and Toni Kroos in the middle. They essential in the event of injury or fatigue the younger players can step in

  3. For Luka modric,kroos and casemiro to move on now is not really needed. I tink they should just wait up, and guide the trio up to a fearless point..
