Sergio Ramos has revealed that there are no new developments regarding his contract situation at Real Madrid amidst speculation linking the defender with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
It was reported during January that Ramos was one of the targets on Tottenham’s radar as Jose Mourinho attempts to bolster his options in central defence (Evening Standard).
The centre-back’s current contract at Real Madrid runs out at the end of the season and the World Cup winner has reportedly rejected a one-year extension offered him by Los Blancos.
Reports in Spain indicate that the 34-year-old is trying to get the best terms possible since this is likely to be his last big contract, while Real Madrid are looking to make significant cuts in player salaries due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ramos has now admitted that there has been no progress in negotiations over a new deal that would keep him at the Santiago Bernebeu.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Real Madrid captain said: “There’s a lot of uncertainty from the news regarding my future.
“All I can say is that there are no news. There is no news I can comment here. I wish I could. There is nothing new.”
Romano also revealed that Madrid supremo Florentino Perez has not given up hope of agreeing on a deal with Ramos.

Despite his age, Ramos would be a terrific coup if we could somehow manage to sign him on a free transfer as he would bring leadership to our backline and would be a fantastic example for the likes of Tanganga and Rodon to learn from.
However, I believe that he will likely come to an agreement over a new deal with Real Madrid sooner rather than later. Even if the two parties are not able to agree on a contract, there is likely to be plenty of interest in the 34-year-old from around Europe.
