Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane refused to confirm whether Toni Kroos will still be at the club next season, stating “there will be changes” at the end of the campaign.
Kroos on Friday used Twitter to describe media reports he is planning to leave the club as “absolutely false information”.
The Germany international has been a key player for Madrid since joining from Bayern Munich in 2014, with Los Blancos winning the Champions League in each of the last three seasons.
Speaking ahead of Madrid’s La Liga clash with Leganes on Monday, Zidane said: “Toni is a key player. He’s been at Madrid five years and has done great things.
“He’s a great player that brings calm. I’ve always liked him. Everyone speaks about Toni, and other players, in terms of whether I want them or not.
“Every player is good and important. There will be changes but not right now, at the end of the season.”
