Ramos to remain?
Real Madrid and Sergio Ramos could soon come to an agreement regarding a new contract for the Spaniard. The talismanic figure and captain of Los Blancos’ contract is set to expire at the end of the current season. Meaning if no agreement in made in the next 47 days, Ramos will be able to negotiate with others clubs.
There has been rumours of contract offers from Juventus and PSG, however Spanish media report that the 34-year-old is to remain in the Spanish capital.
Sources told Spanish media outlet AS that Madrid have rubbished news that Ramos could leave. Saying it was ‘either pure speculation or far from the truth. What needs to happen will happen when their is a break in competition – in line with tradition at Real Madrid.’
Ramos has been integral for Real again this season and brought up his 100th goal for Madrid. An unbelievable record considering his natural centre-back position. The Spaniard scored in the recent El Classico victory over Barcelona and the vital 3-2 Champions League win against Inter Milan.

Real Madrid’s pursuit of PSG forward Kylian Mbappe could step up in the coming weeks and months. The French champions are reportedly trying to tie down the Frenchman to a new deal but, failing that, could sell the young star.
Sporting Director Leonardo spoke about a number of PSG player’s futures in a Q&A session on social media.
“We’ve started talks on several fronts over the renewal of certain players,” Leonardo said. “We have to adapt to the reality of the current economic climate, but we have started discussions over the renewals we have in mind – Di María, Neymar and Mbappé, as well as Bernat and Draxler – and we’re going to intensify these negotiations in the coming days.”
The fee reported by AS is in the region of £160 million. With just a single season remaining after the completion of the 2020/21 season, the French champions may be forced into selling to protect their financial interests.
