Talks are continuing between Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid over a new contract for the defender.
The captain’s current deal expires in June 2021 and he wants to extend it by two years until 2023.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, have a policy when it comes to extending the contracts of ageing players.
Los Blancos would rather go season by season with the 32-year-old, despite the impeccable fitness he has proved this campaign.
They have used this policy with other players in the past and Pepe is an example of a player rejecting the terms and leaving.
Ramos wants to have his future secure enough to be able to focus on maintaining his level of form.
He wants to be at the top of his game and play at the 2022 World Cup with Spain.
Ramos and Real Madrid are expected to come to an agreement in the coming weeks.
