Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has admitted he is unsure what the future holds for club captain Sergio Ramos, with the likes of Manchester United 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.
WHAT HAS RAMOS SAID ABOUT HIS FUTURE AT MADRID?
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.”
WHAT HAS ZIDANE SAID ABOUT HIS DEFENDER?
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.”

WHAT DID HE TELL FANS?
Ronaldo wrote in a message posted on his Instagram page which began: “More important than the number of falls you take in life, is how fast and how strong you get back on your feet… true champions never break!
“Our focus is already in Cagliari, in the Serie A struggle, in the Italian Cup final and in everything that we can still achieve this season.
“It’s true that the past belongs in museums (I should say!), but fortunately, football has memory… and so do I! History can’t be deleted, it’s written every single day with resilience, team spirit, persistence and lots of hard work.
“And those who don’t understand this, will never achieve glory and success.”
