Zinedine Zidane tells Chelsea boss Tuchel he does not know if superstar will leave Madrid in summer
Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is unsure what the future holds for club captain Sergio Ramos, with the likes of Chelsea interested in a potential deal.
There is no doubt that Ramos has been one of the very best central defenders for well over 10 years now, and looked like that he was going to retire at the Spanish giants.
However, that may not be the case after news broke that he has not agreed a new contract at the club, which means that he may have to leave the club at the end of the season with a move to the Premier League possibly on the agenda.
Speaking on Thursday, Ramos admitted there have been no new developments on the contract front, and added that he wants to play another five years.
“I wish I could say something, but everything remains the same,” Ramos said of his contract situation.
“I can play five more years at the highest level. If injuries are not too bad, my mentality will help me.”
Speaking at a press conference, Zidane said: “I want to be honest and I have to say I don’t know what’s going to happen with him.
“We want him to stay here. He’s always going to be an important player and I want him to remain here, that’s what I’ll say as a coach.
“Will Ramos play until he’s 40? That is what Sergio has said. He is a special player. His intention is already good because he wants to continue playing.
“Every year he will know if he is in good shape and, if he is like he is now, of course he can play until he is 40, if he wants.”
This is going to be an interesting one to watch guys..
