Madrid lost their all-time leading scorer to Juve almost 12 months ago in a deal that will cost upwards of €100million and endured a hard campaign in their first season without him.

Kroos joined Real in the summer of 2014 and has captured the Champions League title three times in that spell.

"It would be odd if you didn't miss someone like Cristiano Ronaldo, who has decided so many matches with his goals", he told Bild.

El Confidencial reported in April that Pep Guardiola loves the midfielder and the manager has opened Manchester City's door for the 29-year-old, if he decides to leave the La Liga giants.

'Signing for Real Madrid is the best thing I could have done, I will never play in the United States, China or Qatar'.

"It has been written several times in the past", he said. "I can refute these rumours".

Toni Kroos won a whole lot with Ronaldo by his side, but has revealed a rather interesting bit of information regarding the exit of CR7.

'My contract duration was chosen consciously.

"Thirty-three would be a good age to hang up my boots", the German told Sport Bild.
