After signing a new four-year deal at Real Madrid on Monday, midfielder Toni Kroos believes he will have no problems keeping his place at the club even if Paul Pogba is signed.
Manchester United midfielder Pogba has long since been viewed as a likely target for Madrid and has made no secret of his admiration for Los Blancos and when asked about what impact Pogba's potential arrival could have on his place in the Madrid engine room, Kroos told a media conference: "That doesn't change anything for me.
"I've fought for my place, played well, I don't think I'll have any problems to play. I don't know who's going to go, I don't know who's going to come. I've spoken to the manager; I know what his idea is. I'm going to be important; I can't say anything else.
"I don't know how many changes there are going to be. I've never had any doubts about my future. I want to be here always, and I've always said that."
Madrid is also expected to make a push to sign Eden Hazard, while Kylian Mbappe's comments that he wants more responsibility either at Paris Saint-Germain or "elsewhere" have fueled talk of a move for the World Cup winner.
