Real Madrid is in talks with Sergio Ramos over a new deal for the captain.
Ramos will be out of contract at the Bernabeu next summer and he is free to talk to the overseas club about a possible move in January.
Real Madrid is reluctant to offer Ramos a two-year deal as it is against the policy of the club to offer more than a year deal to players over the age of 30.
Ramos is 34 and he remains a focal point in Zinedine Zidane set up and he recently scored for Real Madrid in the el-clasico and in the clash against Inter Milan in the Champions League.
The report in ESPN claims that Los Blancos have now ‘begun conversations’ with Ramos over extending his deal in the Spanish capital.
Ramos’ representatives have now opened talks and there is a ‘mutual desire’ for the captain to extend. The report also claims Ramos wants to stay until June 2024, meaning he would need a new three-year contract and would be at the club until he is 38.
Speaking about Ramos’s future earlier this year, club president Florentino Perez insisted that the Spain star would be going nowhere.
‘Ramos will finish his career at Madrid. He is more than a captain,’ Perez said after Real Madrid lifted the title last season.
‘He will continue as long as he wants, he knows it. As long as he wants and has the strength, and as he has strength I think he will be with us for many years.’
Ramos won 5 La Liga titles and four Champions League for Real Madrid in 650 appearances since joining in 2005 from Sevilla.
