Oh... Wunder-bra... Just when you’re wondering what else can go wrong
So uh... What now? If Kroos can’t play, Real will have to change a lot of things regarding their method of ball progression. Maybe go more route-one? How do you think this is gonna play out?
I have nothing. No silver lining. Kroos is the best in the world at so many things. Massive loss. Need a Carlo masterclass and others to step up in the most clutch way possible. https://t.co/IdmKkfDMg5— Kiyan Sobhani (@KiyanSo) March 3, 2022

There's lot of interest around Florian Wirtz - it's normal as he's one of the best talents in the world. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern are watching him closely for the future - nothing advanced. ⭐️ #Wirtz— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) March 3, 2022
