Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is the team’s most important player, so an extension shouldn’t be an issue for the club.

Sergio Ramos isn’t like most central defenders. The most obvious example of his uniqueness lies in his goal-scoring ability. Many of his goals are headed, such as his 100th goal for Real Madrid in their win over Inter Milan, but he is also capable of scoring from free kicks and with either foot from open play. And who can deny his greatness from the penalty spot?

Even at the age of 34, Ramos is still one of the best center backs in world football and continues to bang home the goals for Los Blancos. The captain is so crucial to the club that when they don’t have him available in the Champions League, their chances greatly decrease.

With one year left on his contract, Ramos and Real are in negotiations for an extension, and there are really no doubts that he will remain in Madrid. He is too good and too important to let go.

But what could his extension look like? For a while, the question has been one year or two for the No. 4?

Real Madrid have offered Sergio Ramos a two-year extension with no raise

According to a report from Cadena SER, Real Madrid have offered Sergio Ramos a two-year extension. They would normally go year-to-year with a 34-year-old player, but Ramos has shown no signs of slowing down. He has earned being with the Whites for two more years (at least), and Madridistas would want nothing more than to see him in the squad for as long as is feasible.

Additionally, Ramos will not receive a raise in his contract, which makes sense. He is one of the club’s best players and is paid accordingly as a leader and star man, but as he gets older, his play isn’t going to progress.

Most importantly, we are still in a pandemic situation, and Real’s finances have been hit hard. They cannot give him more money, and Ramos, along with everyone else on the team, almost certainly understands that. Plus, Ramos not taking a raise helps the club save up for much-needed upgrades, such as Kylian Mbappe and Eduardo Camavinga in 2021.

Expect to hear news of Ramos and Real finalizing a contract extension soon. The 2020-2021 season will quite clearly not be Ramos’ final year with Los Merengues.
