"Having a hard time writing these words. The football world is sad because a historic footballer is leaving, and I admit you, I am also very sad. Man you are a legend of this sport and a legend of Real Madrid.

"I really enjoyed playing by your side. It's truly been an honor to share Real Madrid's center-field with you. You have qualities that make you a unique and special footballer, and there will never be another Toni Kroos.

"Unforgettable European nights, titles, the magic of the Bernabéu....we will never forget this golden time in the club of our lives. You achieved everything but we still have one left, let’s go for the 15th. I’ll miss you my friend," wrote the Croatian on Instagram.

Following the UCL, Kroos will then travel to Germany to play his final tournament for his national side in the Euros.

'The German Sniper' holds one of the most adverse trophy cabinets in World Football having won almost every trophy that has been made available to him but the European Championship is one that he has never won.
