Toni Kroos is adamant he “never looked at alternatives” after signing a new six-year deal at Real Madrid.

The Germany international penned the long-term contract on Wednesday, committing to the European champions until June 2022.

Kroos was linked with a move to Manchester City and Manchester United in the most recent transfer window but the former Bayern Munich midfielder insists his intention was always to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.

He told a news conference: “At times, things are published and we can’t say what the truth is. There were rumours but I always knew I was very happy here.

“I’ve had two marvellous years here and it never crossed my mind to leave. I am pleased they wanted me to stay, I never looked at alternatives. Real Madrid was always my first choice.

“It’s a long contract with a view to the future – medium and long-term. We were both looking at the possibility of staying here for longer so we sat down and reached this agreement.”
