Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has hinted he will retire at the club when his contract expires: “33 would be a good age to retire.”
The German international ruled out ending his career ‘in the United States, China or Qatar’ after penning a new contract at Los Blancos last month.
“When I am aged 33, that would be a good age to retire,” Kroos told Bild, as cited by Marca.
“My contract duration was chosen consciously. At 33, that would be a good age to hang up the boots. I will have the opportunity at that moment to choose if I want to do something after that.
“Signing for Real Madrid is the best thing I could have done, I will never play in the United States, China or Qatar.”
The central midfielder has penned a new contract at Los Blancos until 2023 to end speculation that he would leave the club this summer.
The 29-year-old has been a fixture in Madrid’s first-team since the summer of 2014, and has won three Champions League titles with the club.
