The return of Zinedine Zidane had led to speculation about Kroos' future at the club, as it has with nearly all players, but he explained that he is happy with the Frenchman. "And that is what I am sure we are going to do". That is the truth.

Therefore big spending is predicted this summer, and Paul Pogba is one of the players linked most.

"We can speak of many names, I also like this player, but for me it does not change what I have done in recent years here, to fight for my position".

On the subject of the speculation surrounding Mbappé, Kroos said: "I like Mbappé as a player but that question's not for me really".
