Zinedine Zidane admits Sergio Ramos could leave Real Madrid like Cristiano Ronaldo did with contract up in the summer

ZINEDINE ZIDANE has admitted he does not know if Sergio Ramos will extend his Real Madrid deal.

Captain Ramos' contract expires this summer and fears are growing that he could make a shock exit in a similar fashion to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo stunned the footballing world in 2018 by joining Juventus for £88million after a shift in his relationship with president Florentino Perez.

Club legend Ramos departing for pastures new was previously considered a remote prospect but contract negotiations with Perez have dragged on.

Paris Saint-Germain, as well as Manchester United and City, have all been linked with a move.

And Real boss Zidane has indicated Ramos could be heading for the exit door this summer.

He said: "Are we going to have a Cristiano case? I don't know what will happen with Ramos.

"He is here with us at the moment.

"We're just focused on [Saturday's] game [against Osasuna]."

Ramos is free to negotiate pre-contract terms with foreign clubs.

Contract talks with Real Madrid have reportedly dragged on due to disputes over the length and financial terms.

Los Blancos have a policy of only offering one-year contracts to players over the age of 30 but Ramos wants a two-season guarantee.

Bernabeu bigwigs caved but reports in Spain claim Ramos' wages are now the issue.


He has reportedly been offered a rollover of his current £312,000-a-week terms but AS allege he is after more because of the club's coronavirus pay-cut policy.

Ramos has become synonymous with Real Madrid having joined the capital giants from Sevilla in 2005.

He has won 22 trophies in that time including five La Ligas crowns and four Champions Leagues.
