Real Madrid looking at Rodri from Manchester City as they plan for life after Toni Kroos

Considered as one of the top midfielders of his generation, Toni Kroos is on the verge of retiring after the upcoming European Championship, marking the end of a remarkable career. Real Madrid is already thinking ahead and has identified Manchester City’s Rodri as a potential replacement.

With his final club appearances scheduled for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on June 1, the 34-year-old German international leaves big shoes to fill in Madrid’s midfield. Rodri, who has been a vital figure for Manchester City since his arrival four years ago, has caught the eye of the La Liga champions.

It’s understood that Real Madrid’s interest in Rodri is significant, although the transfer negotiations could prove to be challenging given the midfielder’s contract with City running until 2027. Alternatively, Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich is also under consideration as Real Madrid weighs its options for Kroos’ successor.
