The player’s contract, which is still tied to the team through June 30, 2024, has been extended, according to a Real Madrid CF statement.
Since his transfer from Bayern Munich to Los Blancos in 2014, Kroos has made 417 appearances for the club, the most of any German player in the organization’s history.
In his nine seasons in the Spanish capital, he has won 20 honours, including four Champions League championships and three LaLiga crowns.
Staying with the Declan Rice deal – there are questions if Man City’s interest is real or if it’s just a ruse to try and drive up the price.
A player-plus-cash deal has also been discussed, but Kalvin Phillips has stated that he wants to remain at the Etihad Stadium and continue playing for Pep Guardiola.
With Liverpool reportedly interested as well, it appears to have put an end to rumors about his departing. else does it?
According to Simon Jordan, “What Kalvin Phillips says and what Pep Guardiola tells him might be two different things.”
“His attitude will need to change if he declares his desire to remain at Man City and Guardiola responds, “That’s very commendable son, but you ain’t playing.
There are several possible ways to complete this transaction because West Ham will have a need to replace this player, and Phillips might be the makeweight.
“Suddenly, you’re making it happen that way by doing a £75 million cash deal and taking Kalvin Phillips.”
Simon Jordan has said Arsenal are not going about things the right way in their pursuit of Declan Rice.
West Ham has turned down two offers from the Arsenal for its best player and captain, with the most recent offer coming in at a club-record £90 million.
Arsenal is anticipated to make a third offer in an effort to close the deal, but many supporters are baffled as to why the club is trying to undercut West Ham’s asking price rather than simply closing the deal.
Although David Sullivan, the owner of the Hammers, is a hard salesperson, according to Jordan, getting an agreement out of him is like “trying to nail jelly to a wall,” he does accept that Arsenal’s game doesn’t entirely make sense.
“At this time, you have for Arsenal sitting in an auction room going, “I’ll bid,” and it’s not big enough,” the presenter of White and Jordan stated this morning. Oh, I’ll make another bid!
“That isn’t how it operates.
“When you’re making a deal and there’s a feeling of rivalry in the air and you think someone else is going to make a counteroffer, you respond to the situation.
“If Arsenal wanted to sneak up on someone, they would just rock through the door and say, ‘I’ll give you £100m on the nail, done, we’ve done the deal.'”
“However, you also need to be aware of who you’re working with. I once did business with David Sullivan, and if he told me it was nine in the morning, I’d check my watch!
So, with that in mind, I believe you must factor in both who you’re working with and the reality that this is a commodity that other people desire.
“I don’t believe that anything Arsenal does at this point will be a done deal.
“Unless Arsenal ask David Sullivan what he wants specifically by going to him,’? Tell me exactly what you’re looking for, and if we deliver on that promise, will you accept the deal?
And I assure you that it would be the equivalent of pinning jelly to a wall.
