Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid ‘are in DEADLOCK over his new contract after he demanded a two-year extension’… but LaLiga giants only want to offer their captain extra 12 months despite his current deal expiring next summer

  • Sergio Ramos proved instrumental as Real Madrid beat Barcelona on Saturday
  • The Real Madrid skipper, 34, reportedly wants a two-year contract extension
  • However, Real have a policy of only offering an extra 12 months to those over 30
  • Ramos’ representatives are in talks as his current deal continues to tick down

Sergio Ramos’ future at Real Madrid remains up in the air after Real Madrid pushed back on his demands for a two-year contract extension.

The Los Blancos skipper, who scored the crucial second goal in Saturday’s 3-1 win over bitter rivals Barcelona, has a deal until the end of the season and is free to talk to foreign clubs in January.

But despite Real being keen to tie him down to fresh terms, they are yet to give in and offer him the extra two years he wants according to AS.

The Spanish newspaper report that the LaLiga champions have a policy of only offering players over 30 a one-year extension to their deals.

Ramos turned 34 in March but remains one of Zinedine Zidane’s most trusted and reliable performers, having made six appearances so far this season.

Speaking about Ramos’ future at the Bernabeu 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.’

However, it is claimed that Real are reluctant to give Ramos the two-year contract he desires and are trying to convince him to accept an extra season.  

AS say that Ramos, formerly a target for Manchester United, wants to stay in the Spanish capital and that a renewal of his contract remains likely.

The ex-Sevilla defender, who has made over 650 appearances for Real since joining the club in 2005, may have to accept a one-year extension, perhaps with a guarantee of a second extra season if he plays a certain amount of games.
