Toni Kroos is expected to stay for another 12 months beyond the summer.
The 33-year-old midfielder’s contract with Real Madrid was set to expire at the business end of the current season.
Many fans were worried that the German midfield maestro would retire at the conclusion of the current campaign.
But he has agreed on a one-year extension at the Spanish capital that will see him into his tenth season as a Real Madrid player.
Since his arrival from Bayern Munich in 2014, Kross has won 19 major trophies with Los Blancos.
Both Karim Benzema and Luka Modric are expected to follow suit as they will be out of contract in the summer.
Carlo Ancelotti has earlier reiterated that he does not want to be without the Real Madrid legends next season.
“I see the three of them as always. They can have their best and worst moments during a season but that’s quite normal,” Ancelotti said earlier this year.
“I think they will continue but we will have to think about when they stop because it will happen. Maybe they don’t have the physique of young people, but while age takes away some things, it gives you others.”
