"I am very happy here, not only me, but also my family. My idea and that of the club is to retire here", declared the German midfielder, who arrived at Real Madrid in the 2014-15 season.
Kroos also analyzed other current issues and referred to the possible arrival next season of the Paris Saint-Germain player Kylian Mbappe: "It's difficult to know, because everything depends on the situation of his contract. It doesn't surprise me that Real Madrid wants to sign him. He's a 'top' player. It's no secret that Real Madrid wants him. In my eight years here, many names have been talked about and only twenty percent have arrived.", He said.
He also had words for one of Mbappé's teammates at PSG, Sergio Ramos. About his former teammate, he indicated that not only "is he a captain", but that he has a good relationship with the Spanish defender against whom it will be "rare" to face in the Champions League.
