Real Madrid star Toni Kroos has reportedly refused to sign a new Real Madrid contract.

The 32 year old German midfielder joined Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in 2014 and has played a key role in Madrid’s multiple successes since his arrival.

Since joining Real Madrid in 2014, Kroos has won three La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez offered Kroos a new contract after our latest Champions League triumph last month but the German snubbed the contract, according to Cadena Ser.

His refusal to renew his contract has come as a surprise to the club as Kroos has entered the final year of his Real Madrid contract.

According to media outlet Sport, Kroos is aware that he will face competition in midfield from Valverde, Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni next season.

Sport also added that Kroos snubbed the new contract offer from Real Madrid until 2024 because he needs to be certain he will be a key player for the club next season.

Kroos wants to assess his performances in the coming season before deciding on his next move.

The German international reportedly wants to renew with Real Madrid only if he is performing at the required level over the coming season.

There’s also the possibility of the 32 year old midfielder retiring at the end of next season when his Real Madrid contract expires.

Kroos has spoken about a new contract on several occasions previously, saying it would depend on what he feels he can still offer to Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

Real Madrid manager Ancelotti do not want the midfielder to leave and still considers the 32 year old as one of the best midfielders in the world.

Ancelotti also believes the presence of Kroos in the Real Madrid dressing room is essential for the team.

Kroos has made 364 appearances for Real Madrid, scoring 25 goals and setting up 83 more.

It remains to be seen how the situation unfolds in the coming weeks and months, but for now, the 32-year-old is not signing a new contract with Real Madrid.
