The anti-retirement plan for Kroos

Real Madrid are planning for next season and one of the scenarios is that Toni Kroos will no longer be in the team.

For this very reason, all the club's big personalities are trying to get the German to renew his contract for one more year although the decision is in the hands of the former Bayern Munich player.

Kroos, who came to Los Blancos for only 25 million euros, has undoubtedly been one of the most successful players in the club's history.

The main supporter of Toni Kroos is Florentino Perez, who considers the midfielder to be one of his best signings across his two spells at the club.

In fact, Perez would be willing to offer the German an awful lot to stay and has already made it clear to him that the door is open for another renewal.

Ancelotti, the other trump card

Carlo Ancelotti is also a very important figure in trying to get Kroos to agree to stay on.

Already in his first spell with the club he gave him all his confidence, playing in his first year as a midfielder in the absence of Casemiro, then on loan at Porto.

It was the 2014-15 campaign, the one following La Decima, that the German played practically every game.

Ancelotti has reunited with Kroos in his second stint in Madrid and he is once again untouchable.

The former Bayern Munich player is living a kind of second youth despite rumors of retirement.

The fact that he no longer plays for his national team has helped him, in addition to overcoming his pubis problems, and this season he has been an ever-present for the Italian coach.

The reinforcements in midfield, with Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga, have also freed him to play where he likes best and with less defensive constraints.

He is the fifth most used player, second in midfield behind Federico Valverde, and only ten minutes behind the fourth, Dani Carvajal.

Ancelotti has always been very cautious when it comes to taking the continuity of Kroos as a given.

However, before the game against Elche he said for the first time that he believes the midfielder will stay.

"I have spoken to Kroos, he will think about it after the World Cup. Personally, I think he's going to stay," the Italian said.

The dressing room backs Kroos

The dressing room continues to make him feel important.

Tchouameni has confessed that working alongside the former Germany player is making him improve and that his adaptation is being made easier as a result.

That the German feels an important part of the new team seems key to his renewal. Kroos is aware that he is part of a group that has begun to fade away.

From the most successful midfield of recent times, Casemiro has left and Luka Modric's contract will expire at the end of the 2022/23 season.

At 32 years of age, Kroos theoretically still has the energy to perform at the highest level based on what we are seeing this season.

In addition to ModricKarim Benzema is also older and they are both an example to the former Bayern Munich player that age doesn't necessarily dictate your performance.

The final decision is in his hands. Real Madrid will wait for him.
