Real Madrid superstar can open talks and negotiate with other clubs.
Lionel Messi is not the only big name who will become a free agent in the La Liga next season. Real Madrid superstar, Sergio Ramos, is in the same boat. Sergio Ramos has been one of the most dedicated servants to the club and has helped them win a number of trophies, thus it is surprising that he has only six months left in his contract but still, no extension offer has been made. Should the club be unable to negotiate terms with the player, he will have the privilege to leave for free.
The Center-back has cemented himself as a legend in Real Madrid as well as Spanish football. The tenacity and passion exhibited by the player are second to none and his determination has helped him amass over 15 major trophies for his club. This humongous number includes five league titles and four UEFA Champions League. The Captain has appeared in 666 games for the Madrid side and scored an incredible 100 goals while providing 40 assists. These are very impressive numbers and he is one of the top-scoring defenders of all time.
It would be a great loss to Madrid if they lose him for free even though he is already 35 years of age. He is still one of the starters in the club and Zinedine Zidane wants to try his best to keep the player at the club. Ramos along with Lucas Vazquez and Luka Modric could leave for free at the end of the season but the manager is hoping to sort things out as soon as possible. In a pre-match interview, Zidane said,
“We all want [contracts to be signed]. We want the situation to be sorted as quickly as possible.
“It’s in everyone’s interests, it would be good for everyone, so hopefully it can be sorted out quickly”
Should they, however, not give him a contract, Ramos can start talking to clubs from now onwards. According to Goal, the Spanish defender has already been approached by top-tier Premier League sides such as Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Ramos could choose to explore different fields as he is nearing the end of his career. A move to the Premier League would be quite lucrative and he can finally experience English football, just like Thiago Silva decided to do.
