Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos rubbished the reports he's set to leave Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
According to some reports in Spain, the Germany international feels his time at the Bernabeu has run its course and he is seeking an end-of-season move elsewhere.
The reports went on to say that the former Bayern Munich star's departure from the club would allow Los Blancos to free up their wages, that's not to mention the transfer fee they would pocket for him.
His deteriorating performances have led to criticism, particularly after Real were dumped out of the Champions League by Ajax last month.
But the 29-year-old tried to put an end to the talk, through social media, over his uncertain future by quoting the article with the caption "Absolutely false information!".
Kroos joined Madrid from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2014 and he has since gone on to win three European Cups, one La Liga title and four FIFA Club World Cups.
The German international had a close relationship with Zidane during his first spell at the club though and his return could help spark a turnaround in fortunes for the remainder of the year.
He has appeared in 228 matches for the club across all competitions, solidifying his reputation as one of Europe's finest midfielders while making an excellent partnership with Luka Modric.
Manchester United enquired about Kroos last summer and another approach could be on its way under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, especially with Ander Herrera looking set to leave for Paris St-Germain.
