However, he will now retire from the sport entirely at the end of Euro 2024.

"July 17, 2014 - the day of my presentation at Real Madrid, the day that changed my life ," Kroos said on Instagram.

"My life as a footballer -- but especially as a person. It was the beginning of a new chapter at the biggest club in the world. After 10 years, at the end of the season, this chapter comes to an end. At the same time this decision means that my career as an active footballer will end this summer after the European Championship.

As I have always said: Real Madrid is and will be my last club. I am happy and proud that in my mind I found the right time for my decision and that I could solve it myself" , Kroos continued.
