‘Professor K’ is not retiring yet… Real key MF could sign new deal until 2025

Real Madrid veteran midfielder Toni Kroos is likely to stay with the club for another season.

“His future has been decided,” German sports outlet Sporx reported on Sunday (Aug. 17). According to the outlet, current manager Carlo Ancelotti has signed a new contract with Real and Cross is reportedly keen to stay with the club.

At 34 years old, Cross is still a regular in the starting lineup. His longtime teammate Luka Modric is 38 and has lost his place in the team, but Cross is still a mainstay at Real.

“Modric will leave the team at the end of the season, but Kroos is likely to sign a new contract to stay with the club for another season,” Spurs reported, adding that “talks between the two parties will start at the end of March.” Cross signed a one-year extension after the end of last season, and while his contract expires this summer, a new deal would keep him in a Real shirt until the summer of 2025.

Real Madrid’s midfield depth is thick at the moment. Between Kroos and Modric, as well as Dani Ceballos, Aurélien Chouaményi, Eduardo Camabinga, and Jude Bellingham, there are six players who can play in central midfield. Of these, only Kamabinga and Chouameni pose a threat to Kroos’ spot.

However, Cross is not giving up his starting spot anytime soon.

According to soccer specialist Transfermarkt, he has played a total of 2,031 minutes this season, the sixth highest of all Real players. In midfield, he is second only to Jude Bellingham. Chouameni and Kamabinga have played 1742 and 1675 minutes respectively.

“Ancelotti values crosses very highly,” said ‘Spox’. The strategic importance of crosses in the center of the field is why he deserves a contract extension,” said ‘Spurs’.

Cross is a back who has been playing for the team since 2014. He”s slow on his feet, but his excellent vision and strong kick make him a very successful mid to long-range passer and a good mid-range shot taker. According to soccer specialized platform Sofascore, Cros has never had a passing success rate below 90% since joining La Liga in 2014. This season, he”s been performing beyond his years with a 94% passing success rate.

His domestic fans have nicknamed him “The Professor” after the way he orchestrates his team’s entire attack with passes as precise 카지노 as a ruler.

However, his teammate Modric, who is part of the “Kakamo” combination that once dominated Real’s midfield, is increasingly likely to leave the club at the end of the season.

Modric and Crosby, who won three La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League titles together with Casemiro, who now plays for Manchester United, have a very different relationship.

British soccer outlet Tribuna reported late last month that Modric was unhappy with his absence against UD Las Palmas, saying, “Ancelotti started Ceballos and didn’t even bring Modric on as a substitute. Modric was forced to sit on the bench for the entire game.”

Notably, when Ceballos was substituted in the 14th minute of the second half, it was Valverde who came on in his place. While this may have been a tactical decision, as the team was down 0-1 and needed to come back from a 1-0 deficit, it was also a sign of Modric’s frustration that he wasn’t getting the playing time he used to get.

Currently, Modric has only played 1,374 minutes, less than the team’s backup goalkeeper Andriy Lunin (1,560).
