No one can deny that Real Madrid have maintained their status as the most dominant team in European soccer over the past two decades, as their Champions League titles are a true reflection of that. In that sense, the Merengue side especially shone in that competition when they managed to win it consecutively on three occasions in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

That team had great stars in its squad, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro, among others. The latter three formed one of the best midfields in history, as together they won a total of five Champions League titles. With the departure of Casemiro to Manchester United and the departure of other great stars of that era, now only Kroos and Modric are still part of the Spanish team.

Both are at the end of their respective careers, as Toni Kroos is 34 years old, while Luka Modric is already 38. However, the quality in them has not been lost, as they are still true magicians with the ball. However, it is no secret that the end is near for both of them, although there are those who refuse to admit it.

In that sense, one of his former Real Madrid teammates, Isco, launched an emotional request to Kroos, but not so to Modric. The Spanish midfielder used his social networks to ask the German not to retire from soccer yet and to let them enjoy his talent "two or three more years".

As a Merengue player, Kroos has won 4 Champions League, 5 Club World Cups, 3 La Liga, 4 European Super Cups, 1 Copa del Rey and 4 Spanish Super Cups.
