Real Madrid remain hopeful of Kroos accepting new contract offer

Real Madrid remain hopeful of Toni Kroos accepting a new contract offer.

Cadena SER says the German midfielder has not responded to the club's first approach to sit down and discuss a contract extension. At present the player is keen not to sign anything at present and will wait for his contract (which ends in June 2023) to run down and will then assess his situation.

Real Madrid wanted a short extension with Kroos currently 32, and were looking for to bring the deal through to the end of the 2024 campaign.

Kroos is anxious that his remaining time in the Spanish capital is based on him feeling that his level of playing has something to contribute to the club and if Madrid continue to consider that contribution necessary.

Kroos has stated: “I will be 33 years old when (this contract) ends; my idea, practically, is to finish here. My feelings are that at 37 or 38 I don't think I'll continue playing. I will decide at the moment."
