Zinedine Zidane has spoken about the future of rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Sergio Ramos, admitting that he wants the defender’s future to be resolved as soon as possible.

The centre back has only six months to run on his current deal and reports indicate that there have been complications in the negotiations over a new contract.

According to AS, Los Blancos are trying to trim their wage bill in light of the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic but Ramos is determined to get the best terms that he can since it is likely to be his last big contract.

90min.com reported in November that Spurs had contacted the 34-year-old’s representatives over a potential January transfer, while The Evening Standard also claimed last week that the World Cup winner was one of two central defensive targets Spurs are eyeing this month.

However, Zidane has now expressed his intention to keep his captain at the club.

The Real Madrid boss said (via CalcioMercato): “We want the issue of contract renewals to be resolved as soon as possible.

“I say this in everyone’s interest, and for our good.

“I hope that everything will be resolved quickly.”

While that statement from Zidane does not sound like he is confident that Ramos will sign a new deal, I cannot really see Real Madrid letting the talismanic defender leave. I expect him to end his career at the club and I believe that they will eventually come to an agreement on the terms of a new deal. Even though the Spaniard would improve us significantly, Spurs fans should not get their hopes up about our chances of signing him.
