Sergio Ramos will probably remain in Real Madrid until his playing days are over, as the cultured centre-back has agreed to a contract extension with Los Merengues. With the move, the Spaniard will now be under contract with the club until June 2021.
According to a report from MARCA, Ramos already signed his new deal last season but the official announcement has not been made yet. That is expected in the coming days, though.
Ramos is clearly one of the top players in Madrid and is also one of the leaders both on and off the pitch. He arrived as a teenager from Sevilla and now became the captain, leading by example and stepping up when the team needs it the most. If he reaches the end of his new deal, then Ramos would spend a whopping 16 years with the Spanish champions.
One of the reasons why Ramos also wanted to extend his tenure is because he has a close relationship with both the chairman, Florentino Perez, and the manager, Zinedine Zidane. And the club has decided to increase his wages, putting him in the same category as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, two of the team’s top earners.
Ramos has won 153 caps – with 13 goals – for the Spain national team, and accumulates 533 appearances with 69 goals for Real Madrid throughout his career.
