Will Sergio Ramos extend his Real Madrid contract? The Spaniard informs Los Blancos about his decision
Will Sergio Ramos extend his Real Madrid contract? The Spain international centre-back has informed Los Blancos about his decision.
After spending over 15 seasons with the Santiago Bernabeu outfit, the Spain international is reportedly on the verge of leaving the club next summer.
- Sergio Ramos has informed Real Madrid that he will not extend his contract beyond the summer
- The 34-year-old centre-back has made this decision amid interest from several top European clubs in his signature
- Ramos has won 5 La Liga trophies and 4 Champions League titles during his 15-year spell with Los Blancos
The 34-year-old Spain international is currently in the last four months of the six-year contract he signed with Los Blancos in 2015. Even then the player had made potential suitors and Real had to offer him the €10m wage packet which the centre-back wanted from the start.
Ramos has spent nearly 16 seasons with the Santiago Bernabeu outfit since joining them from Sevilla in the summer of 2005. The Spain international has won 5 La Liga trophies, 4 Champions League titles, 3 UEFA Super Cups and four FIFA Club World Cups during that time.
Why Ramos isn’t signing a new contract?
Multiple reports over the past few months have claimed that the reason behind Ramos not putting pen on paper to a new contract has to do with the centre-back’s insistence that he won’t accept the 10% pay cut that the club wants him to agree to in return for offering him a new deal.
Other reports have indicated that it’s the length of the next deal that is proving to be a sticking point. The 34-year-old centre-back wants to get a new 3-year deal, whereas Los Blancos are only willing him to offer a contract that will expire in two years’ time.
And in an apparent boost to Manchester United’s chances of landing the centre-back, Mirror Football claimed last week that Ramos and his representatives are more open to the idea of the Spaniard joining Man Utd over PSG upon the expiry of his Los Blancos deal in the summer.
