According to a report, midfielder Tony Kroos is about to be offered a contract extension at Real Madrid.
The 32-year-old has made 373 appearances for Los Blancos since signing in 2014 and has been praised for his recent performances with Carlo Ancelotti’s side at the top of La Liga after winning the title alongside the Champions League last year.
According to Football Espana, Kroos will be rewarded with a one-year extension at Madrid after previously stating his desire to retire from the club.

Madrid are known to have a strict approach towards players over 30, with Kroos’ midfield partner Luka Madrid, now 37, signing two consecutive one-year extensions.
Casemiro, 30, who has won five Champions League victories with Kroos and Modrid in midfield, recently left the club after nine years to join Manchester United and there has been much speculation about Kroos’ future but he will now sign a new deal to extend his career in Spain.
The German’s current contract expires at the end of the season.

Kroos has already retired from international football with Germany and expects to hang up his boots for good sooner rather than later.
He recently admitted he could retire later this year, saying: “I think 2023 is appropriate [to retire]I will be 33 years old.
“I’ll decide whether to extend it for a season or two, that’s still up for debate, but I’m absolutely certain that I’ll resign at Real Madrid.”
It now seems unlikely that he will retire at the end of the season and he is expected to stay at Madrid for at least another year.
