Despite his age, he is still attracting interest from other clubs.
“Juventus are keen on signing Toni Kroos, 34, whose contract with Real Madrid is set to expire this summer,” Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Aug. 8 (KST).
Cross is considered one of the best midfielders in the world. Since joining Real Madrid from Bayern Munich in 2014, he has scored 28 goals and provided 96 assists in 447 appearances for the club.
In every moment of glory, there was always a cross. He has won four Champions League titles and four La Liga titles with Real alone, capping off a glittering career.
Despite the glittering achievements, his future was unclear last summer. When his contract expired in June, he failed to agree to a new deal, leading to retirement speculation.
Luckily, the re-signing came quickly. Real announced a one-year deal with Cross last year. The club”s policy of not signing players over the age of 30 to long-term contracts was honored once again.
The club was not wrong. Cross proved to be no slouch, scoring one goal and providing seven assists in 30 games across all competitions, even in the face of increased competition for a starting role with the arrival of Jude Bellingham.
The future isn’t exactly guaranteed. Cross is once again out of 메이저토토사이트 contract in June. Just like last year, there hasn’t been any news of a renewal.
This is where Juventus comes in. According to reports, the Bianconeri plan to sign Cross on a free transfer this summer if he doesn’t re-sign.
The stumbling block is Cross’s high salary. At Real, Cross earns an annual salary of €20 million, the highest in the team. He would have to take a pay cut to join Juventus.
There is still a possibility that he could re-sign with Real. “Crosby’s agent is using Juventus’ interest to urge Real to re-sign him,” according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
