Sergio Ramos recently spoke at a virtual press conference in a presentation of his documentary. The 34-year-old captain spoke about his time with Real Madrid and his current contract negotiations.
Ramos says that he wishes he had some update on his contract talks with the club, but there’s none to share at this time. He says his main focus right now is getting back from injury and winning all that’s currently available.
“A lot of questions and uncertainty are raised because of the information that comes out. I’d like to be able to say something today but there’s nothing new. So everything remains the same. I’ve just been thinking about coming back after the injury, trying to finish the season in the best possible way and aiming to win the trophies that are up for grabs.”
Ramos says he would like five more years at the club as he believes he can still play at his highest level during that time. For now, he appears focused and determined on returning from injury strong.
“I’ve been injured for a bit, but it wasn’t too serious, and fortunately in my career I haven’t had too many. I’m finally back with the team and I hope I can help the team in the final part of the season.”
It seems clear that Ramos doesn’t really have a true idea of what his future holds for him as his contract is set to expire this summer. It also seems that he wants to continue growing his legacy at the club and leading as captain. He said that he has given his soul for the Real Madrid badge.
It’s very important Real gets its captain signed to an extension given how well he was still playing prior to injury and how much he means to the club. The club can bring in a younger talent, but there’s no truly replacing Sergio Ramos.
