Real Madrid have been in transitional phase for quite some time now. A number of veteran players have left the club in recent times, while Los Blancos have brought in highly-rated youngsters from around the globe to replace them. That does not mean that they do not have anymore legends in their ranks.

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are two all-time greats still playing for Real Madrid. Both were struggling game time at the start of the season, but with a number of injuries in midfield, they have gotten back into the starting XI gradually.

There are many who are certain that this is Modric's last season at Real Madrid. He was barely playing when everyone was fit and available at the start of the campaign. And he is also 38 years of age.

Kroos' future feels a bit more uncertain. There have been suggestions that he could potentially be offered another extension by Real Madrid. The retirement rumours have never really gone away either. Out of the blue, a return to the German national team has emerged as a possibility. And it looks like if he chooses to depart Santiago Bernabeu, there will be no lack of high-profile teams looking to sign him.

Juventus seem to be a club with an eye on Kroos. As reported by TuttoJuve, Paolo Paganini, a journalist for Raisport, said:

"In Spain we are talking about Kroos again, the midfielder is at a crossroads: end his career at Real Madrid or evaluate other offers among the which there is also that of Juventus after the survey a few weeks ago which was confirmed to me in Monte Carlo."

After a few tough years, Juventus are back challenging for the Serie A title. And it could be a nice club for someone like Kroos to finish his career at, while taking on a different challenge as well.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the German midfield maestro. Kroos retiring at Real Madrid, whenever that happens, seems like the most likely scenario though.
