The Real Madrid midfielder has opened up on his future at the club, with his contract running until the next season.

Since his 2014 move from Bayern Munich, Toni Kroos has been an integral part of the Spanish giants’ success. The German midfield has featured in 350 games for the Blancos, winning multiple domestic and European trophies.

Kroos’ current contract at the club runs until the end of the next season. Despite the lack of news around a potential contract renewal, the German says he wants to retire at Santiago Bernabeu.

 “This is an incredible relationship that I would never put at stake for some kind of speculation,” the Real Madrid star told Sky (via Marca).

“I think that is the case on both sides,

“I want to end my career here and that is how it will happen. When exactly will that be I cannot answer exactly, if that will be in 2023 or a year or two later.

He added: “We will not stress too much about that. I know what I have at the club and they know what found in me. At some point we will approach in a relaxed way.

“I still feel fully [fit], but you have to adapt to the level, that the body accompanies and there must also be the desire . And when all that is, we will sit down at some point to talk and, if not, I still have a contract until 2023.”

Kroos has continued his key role in Real Madrid’s midfield this season as they sit top of the La Liga. The Blancos are five points clear of Sevilla, who have a game in hand.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will return to action on Wednesday as they take on Barcelona in the Supercopa.
