Real Madrid have been urged to renew Sergio Ramos’ contract, as legend Fernando Hierro wants for “the best centre-back in the club’s history” to get a new contract.

As things stand, a long-serving figure at Santiago Bernabeu is thanks to hit representation when his current deal expires within the summer. Failure to hammer out fresh terms has come as a surprise to several , with variety of clubs now sniffing around Ramos, and Hierro hopes a compromise are often reached that suits all parties.

The Blancos legend, who was once a commanding defender himself, told El Confidencial of a World Cup winner: “Sergio is a legend of Real Madrid and hopefully he will finish his sporting career at this club. I believe that players like him should finish in a great club. In the sporting aspect, he has conditions that I did not have and for me he is the best centre-back in the club’s history.”

“That is clear to me because of everything he has represented and I am happy for him, without a doubt.”

Few sides in Europe can match Ramos’ sporting and financial ambition, even with the Spain international now being 34 years aged . Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are among people who could do a deal if a chance presented itself, with Ligue 1 and Premier League heavyweights said to be keeping an in depth eye on events in Madrid.

A man who has been at the Bernabeu since 2005 has taken in 668 appearances for Real, many of them as captain, and registered a powerful haul of 100 goals.

He has helped the Blancos to 5 La Liga titles and 4 Champions League crowns, while also savouring World Cup and European Championship success across 178 outings for Spain.

In the present, Ramos is currently nursing a knee injury that has required surgery, but he are going to be back to assist bids for domestic and continental honours in 2020-21.

Zinedine Zidane are going to be delighted to possess a talismanic figure at his disposal, with Hierro adamant that the Frenchman remains the proper man for the foremost demanding of roles despite questions being asked of him sometimes this season.
