​Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is keen to sign a new two-year deal to extend his stay at the club until he's 37, but Los Blancos are currently only willing to offer him a new one-year deal on top of his current contract. 


Ramos has been a key figure in the heart of Madrid's defence for numerous years and, while he may have recently celebrated his 34th birthday, the Spaniard is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, Ramos has failed to play the full 90 minutes in only three of his side's 27 league games this season.

The club captain's contract is due to expire in the summer of 2021, and ​the Evening Standard report that he is keen to sign a fresh two-year deal to ensure he stays at the club until he's 37-years-old. However, Real are unwilling to meet his demands, offering him just a one-year extension to his current deal.


As a result, there could soon be 'another showdown'. This, of course, isn't the first time that ​Ramos has faced a stand-off with the club, and the report alludes to this. The Spaniard was linked with a move to ​Manchester United back in 2015 after he clashed with club president Florentino Perez. 


After ​Real were knocked out of the ​Champions League during the 2018/19 season by Ajax, Ramos was once again linked with a move away. While the tough-tackling defender has made it clear in recent times that he wishes to end his career in Madrid, the Standard claim that both parties may have to compromise if a deal is to be reached.

​It was recently reported that the coronavirus pandemic could play some part in the contract negotiations, with the postponement of games having major financial implications on clubs. And due to this, Los Blancos may not wish to hand out a new two-year deal to a player who is 34. Nonetheless, it does state that preliminary talks have taken place - and a compromise may be required.
