Zidane refuses to confirm Kroos stay at Real Madrid

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane refused to confirm whether Toni Kroos will still be at the club next season, stating "there will be changes" at the end of the campaign.

Kroos on Friday used Twitter to describe media reports he is planning to leave the club as "absolutely false information".

The Germany international has been a key player for Madrid since joining from Bayern Munich in 2014, with Los Blancos winning the Champions League in each of the last three seasons.

Speaking ahead of Madrid's LaLiga clash with Leganes on Monday, Zidane said: "Toni is a key player. He's been in Madrid for five years and has done great things.

"He's a great player that brings calm. I've always liked him. Everyone speaks about Toni, and other players, in terms of whether I want them or not. Every player is good and important. There will be changes but not right now, at the end of the season," Zidane said.

Spend

Madrid is expected to spend heavily in the transfer market following Zidane's return, with Premier League players Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen all reportedly target, as well as Paris Saint-Germain forwards Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Kroos' first-team opportunities could be restricted by new arrivals and, while saying that he is a fan of the 29-year-old, Zidane could not confirm whether he would still be at the Santiago Bernabeu for 2019-20.
