Toni Kroos has firmly denied rumours suggesting that he plans on leaving Real Madrid at the end of the season.

The German midfielder is highly-rated within the football world for his creativity, passing and vision which has proven to be a valuable asset for Real over the years.

The Spanish giants signed Kroos from Bayern Munich in 2014 for €25m during the very same summer he helped Germany win the World Cup at Brazil.

Since then, Kroos has gone on to rank in 13 goals and 59 assists in 228 appearances for Los Blancos across all competitions.

The 29-year-old’s also been an integral member of the Real squad that’s won three Champions Leagues, four Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, a Supercopa de España and one La Liga title over the past five years.

But this season has seen Kroos struggle to live up to his usual high standards at the heart of the Real midfield.

Therefore, Spanish newspaper AS claimed that Kroos’ time at the Santiago Bernabeu would come to an end in the summer as part of plans for a massive overhaul in the team.

Marcelo admits Madrid is “damaged”

Los Blancos skipper was happy after his team defeated Athletic Bilbao 3-0 in this weekend's Spanish La Liga fixture.

Los Merengues are expected to back manager Zinedine Zidane heavily in the upcoming transfer window and reportedly hope to make around €500m in player sales.

It was reported on Thursday that Real had informed Gareth Bale’s representatives of their plans to sell the Wales star as part of this new revolution.

But Kroos has strongly denied AS’ claims that he will be joining Bale out of the Spanish capital in the summer.

“Absolutely false information,” He wrote on Twitter.

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen have all been strongly linked as potential midfield recruits for Zidane.

Meanwhile, rumours linking Eden Hazard to Real refuse to go away as the Chelsea star is yet to come to a final decision over where his future lies.
