Sergio Ramos’ contract talks have been in discussion for the better part of the year.
Problem is it is about to be January and an agreement is yet to be reached.
Ramos will be free to talk to other outfits from next month but Real Madrid want to keep him for one more season. The veteran has demanded for a longer contract the terms of which are still being negotiated.
Luka Modric was in a similar boat as Ramos but it seems like he has moved closer to an agreement than the Galacticos skipper. When asked about his future, Ramos simply answered, “We’ll see, we’ll see.”
Ramos is due to turn 35 in March and it is against Real’s policy to hand anybody over 30 a long-term deal. His wage demands of €12m yearly is also thought to be far too steep. While Real don’t want to lose their most important defender, they are not willing to upstage their plans for the remainder of the squad.
This season has been evidence enough that new signings are necessary and handing veterans chunky deals stand in the way of that plan. Of course, nobody can say that Ramos is not deserving of it.
He might be closer to his 40s now but he still is one of their best players right alongside Modric. Without him, the Madrid defence collapses and nobody is currently there to replace him.
