Earlier this month, reports indicated that Kroos was on the verge of signing a contract extension with Real Madrid, which would have kept him at Santiago Bernabeu for the 2024-25 season.

However, the 34-year-old has now confirmed that he will retire from professional football, with his final appearance set to be at this summer's European Championship on home soil.

The German magician started his career in the Bayern Munich youth team before moving to Real Madrid, where he has been instrumental in their success over the past decade.

During his time at Madrid, Kroos has won four La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies, and he also played a key role in Germany's World Cup victory in 2014.

His final Real Madrid game will be at Wembley, when Los Blancos take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final.
