Sergio Ramos has lived exceedingly difficult months recently in Real Madrid concerning his future in the club. His contract is running out at the end of the current season, and his future is a complete mystery. Despite that, the center back and the board led by Florentino Pérez have been negotiating a contract extension for at least one more year.
The biggest struggle in the negotiations where both the extension and the player's salary. The board offered him to keep his current earning for just one year while he asked so for two years. The counteroffer from the directors was to sign for two years but reducing his salary in at 10%. Of course, no agreement has been reached so far.
Ramos is about to turn 35 years old in just two months, but he looks in perfect form. He has expressed his desire to be part of the Spanish squad that will enter the Olympic Games in Tokyo in July. He is on his way to become the first male soccer player ever to reach 200 games for his national team, which eventually he could do if he stays until 2022 World Cup.
Recently, Real Madrid had stated that they would wait until March to receive a positive answer from their player. Otherwise, they would withdraw from the negotiations and consider them finished and failed. Meanwhile, Spanish media has reported that Sergio Ramoshas already told them he has decided to leave the club. PSG and Manchester United seem to be the most likely destinations.
