Real Madrid's reaction to Toni Kroos surprise retirement revealed

Real Madrid were planning to extend the contract of Toni Kroos before he decided to hang up his boots.

According to The Athletic, Kroos informed Carlo Ancelotti of his plans to retire on Monday. His decision left Real Madrid 'devastated'.

Los Blancos have a high regard for Kroos and believe he still has a lot to offer the club. But his retirement is unlikely to necessitate a new signing in midfield.

Real Madrid will likely proceed to offer Luka Modric a new contract as has been widely reported. The Croatian is 38, four years older than Kroos, but he's unlikely to announce his retirement.

Kroos says he will officially leave active football after the Euros. The swashbuckling playmaker won 22 trophies at Real Madrid and could win his sixth Champions League title and fifth at Real Madrid next week.
