Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos’ contract expires this summer and fears are growing that he could make a shock exit in a similar fashion to Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus for £88million in 2018.
Paris Saint-Germain, as well as Manchester United and City, have all been linked with a move.
And Real boss Zinedine Zidane has indicated club legend Ramos could be heading for the exit door this summer.
He said: “Are we going to have a Cristiano case? I don’t know what will happen with Ramos.
“He is here with us at the moment.
“We’re just focused on [Saturday’s] game [against Osasuna].”
Ramos is free to negotiate pre-contract terms with foreign clubs as contract talks with Real have reportedly dragged on due to disputes over the length and financial terms.
Los Blancos have a policy of only offering one-year contracts to players over the age of 30 but Ramos wants a two-season guarantee.
Bernabeu bigwigs caved but reports in Spain claim Ramos’ wages are now the issue.
He has reportedly been offered a rollover of his current £312,000-a-week terms but AS allege he is after more because of the club’s coronavirus pay-cut policy.
