Real Madrid skipper, Sergio Ramos has opened up on the speculation surrounding his future at the Bernabeu, insisting that nothing has changed regarding his contractual situation and that he is "clear about his future".
Ramos' current contract with the Los Blancos expires at the end of the season, with the defender yet to agree to new terms with the club hierarchy. The defender was offered a two-year deal with a 10 per cent pay cut by club President Florentino Perez or a second option - the continuation of his current wages but for only one more year - but turned down both offers.
The 35-year-old has been linked with a number of top European clubs, including Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain - though he did not reveal anything new when it came to his decision.
"I'm clear about my future. There's nothing new, I'm focused. In a week we're going to be playing pretty much the entire season, and I want to play and contribute my best level. I hope we get good results and I hope we can give the level we want," he told Marca.
The Spaniard who is widely considered to be one of the greatest defenders in the history of the sport, is in his 16th season at Madrid, with the defender making 670 appearances for them so far and playing an important role in leading them to five LaLiga titles, two Copa del Rey's and four Champions League honours.
