Real Madrid have announced the extension of Toni Kroos’ contract until 2023, so the German midfielder will continue in the club despite the rumours. Besides, Raphael Varane has told the Spanish newspaper Marca that he wants to continue in the Spanish capital, although the French press published before his intention about leaving.
Zinedine Zidane’s revolution in the squad is still to come. We don’t know yet how many players will leave the Spanish capital, but there are two important footballers that will stay next year despite the rumours. Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane have secured a spot in the dressing room after speaking with Zizou about the future. Both have signed a terrible season, like all their team mates, but are willing to improve and continue winning with the club.
Toni Kroos has sealed a new contract with the Spanish club, extending it for one year. The German midfielder arrived to the club in 2014, after the World Cup, and he’s been one of the most important players in the midfield, together with Luka Modric and Casemiro. The continuity of these dreamt midfield seems secured, although new players should come and put some pressure on them.
Kroos has been one of the most criticized players this season. He’s been very slow and completely useless in the important games. Actually, we saw him many times on the bench or being substituted, something really unusual in his era at Real Madrid. For this reason, rumours talks about his exit towards PSG this summer, but he chose to continue with Los Blancos.
Another case is Varane’s situation. The French defender still has contract with the club, but some months ago the French press published his interest about leaving the club. He had no motivation in the Spanish capital after winning everything with the club and his performances this year were really poor. However, Zidane’s arrival changed the situation and the French centre-back is decided to continue in the club.
