Toni Kroos has suggested he will end his career with Real Madrid.
The Germany midfielder has also made it clear he has no interest in ending his playing days in the United States, China or Qatar and signed a new contract with Real last month.

‘When I am aged 33, that would be a good age to retire,’ Kroos said in an interview with Bild, as reported by Marca.
‘My contract duration was chosen consciously. At 33, that would be a good age to hang up the boots.
‘I will have the opportunity at that moment to choose if I want to do something after that.
‘Signing for Real Madrid is the best thing I could have done, I will never play in the United States, China or Qatar.’
Kroos joined Real in the summer of 2014 and has captured the Champions League title three times in that spell.
