Loved by many, hated by some, Sergio Ramos is the epitome of leadership in the world of football as he continues his excellent form at the Spanish club of Real Madrid. Since he arrived at the club 15 years ago, the Spaniard has managed to make more than 650 appearances, lodging 100 goals and 40 assists in all competitions for Los Blancos.
However, with his current contract coming to an end, the Spaniard could be convinced to seek new pastures in his illustrious career. The 35-year-old could be free to negotiate with other clubs if he fails to sign a new deal with Los Blancos in the coming months.
Nevertheless, recent reports suggest that the La Liga champions are willing to bend their principles in order to extend Ramos’ stay at the Spanish capital. The principle suggests that any player above the age of 30 is obliged to receive only a one-year contract extension if a deal is agreed between the club and player.
Whereas Ramos is set to receive a two-year contract extension without a raise in his current salary due to the ongoing pandemic caused by Covid-19. The 13-time Champions League winners are more than keen to retain their current captain after a brilliant run of performances this season. The Spanish talisman celebrated his 100th goal for the Spanish club as they defeated Italian giants, Inter Milan in a commanding performance mid-week.
Both parties are keen to extend their alliance for a little longer as Ramos plans to retire in the colors of Real Madrid. Involved parties agreed to delayed negotiations as the officials in the board room assessed the financial impact of the pandemic. Nonetheless, the contract extension for the Spaniard is certainly the top priority for the La Liga champions as of now and seems like a straightforward deal that could take place in the months to come.
