A report from AS has now explained the complications that have arisen in Real Madrid’s negotiations with Sergio Ramos over a new contract.
The 34-year-old’s current deal runs out at the end of the season and reports indicated back in November that Tottenham had reached out the defender’s representatives over a potential transfer in January.
Dan Kilpatrick reported a week ago that the World Cup winner was one of two central defenders Tottenham are eyeing as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his backline.
If AS are to be believed, Ramos’ representatives and Real Madrid are a long way away from agreeing on a new contract.
The report claims that Madrid are looking to make significant cuts in player salaries and bonuses due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is said that Ramos wants to receive the best terms possible since this could be the final big contract of his career.
The report also suggests that the centre-back would prefer to stay at Real Madrid and the Los Blancos similarly want their captain to sign a new deal.

I do not see a situation where Madrid would let Ramos go given how important he is to them both on and off the pitch. Even at 34 years of age, the centre-back continues to lead from the front and I fully expect him to finish his career at Real Madrid.
