Real Madrid will offer captain and club legend Sergio Ramos a one-year contract extension, according to a report from AS. Ramos’ current deal with Madrid expires in 2021, meaning that if he decides to accept that offer and extend his contract he’d be 36 years old when his new deal expires.

The club likes to offer one-year extension for players older than 32 years old and Ramos has been no exception. The defender talked about his future ahead of the first leg against Manchester City three months ago and revealed that it will be easy to reach an agreement.

“There’s no hurry at all and we’ll surely reach some kind of understanding no matter what the club wants, I’ve never asked for two, three or four years and I totally understand that they decide to do it year by year when we reach a certain age. They’re trying to create tensions between the club and myself and that simply doesn’t exist. If the club wants me here, I’ll stay here,” said Ramos.

The report from AS suggests that the Spanish defender would like to defend Real Madrid’s jersey at the new Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and even Ramos’ brother and agent Rene confirmed the news saying that “it would be a great way to leave Real Madrid at the top.”

Sergio Ramos is keen on playing in the MLS when he leaves Real Madrid —per that same report— and his friendship with Inter Miami owner and former Real Madrid player David Beckham could give him the proper chance to play football in the United States.
