The stage of Toni Kroos on Germany it could be coming to an end. The Real Madrid player seriously meditates leaving the national team once they have been eliminated from the Eurocup at the hands of England. It is a reflection that he has been thinking about for months and that should be final, in one case or another, in the coming days. At 31, Kroos would leave the Mannschaft after 106 caps, 17 goals and 19 assists. He made his debut in March 2010 at just 20 years old and with the help of Joachim Low, who is also leaving his post. Together they achieved the great success of to be world champions again in 2014, defeating Argentina in the end in Brazil.
His departure would leave him with a different horizon, even longer, of his career. Kroos, knowledgeable to the millimeter of his body, was already aware before the European Championship that the seasons of so many games were not going well for him, and that it would be important to start dosing himself. In this sense, thinks that Madrid should be his priority in his last years in the elite. Leaving Germany would remove, at least, eight games a year, to which should be added the final phases and the friendlies prior to them, without forgetting the travel and training with the wear and tear that they entail.
If your withdrawal is confirmed, Kroos’ schedules will be more predictable. The German, unusual in the Madrid preseason, having played many summers with his national team, will be able, as of next year, to start the course with the rest of his teammates. What’s more, would have a few more days off on the FIFA dates of September, October, November and March, which would help him stay in top shape for the white team.
Terminates contract in 2023 (he signed his last renewal in 2019). However, the white club would value very positively that Kroos, the German with the most games in the club’s history (320), would focus on Madrid in the last years of his career. This could help you get better renovations.
Of course, we must not forget that it is a player who has the idea of retiring ‘young’. Without going any further, last February, in an interview in ARD-Sendung, assured that the moment of his retirement could coincide with the end of his contract with the white club. “So I would be 33 years old and I think it’s a good age to finally think about something else. In my mind it was also my last contract. At least in the long term, “he said in that interview. For now, Real Madrid could exclusively enjoy Kroos for two more years.
