Sergio Ramos believes he can play at the highest level for five more years, but admits his contract situation at Real Madrid is not closer to being resolved.
The Madrid captain’s contract is about to expire this summer and a number of other of Europe’s top clubs are linked with signing him on a free transfer. Zinedine Zidane’s side are monitoring Villarreal defender Pau Torres as speculation continues to surround Ramos, but the 34-year-old says he’s only that specialize in the season at hand.
“I wish I could say something, but everything remains the same,” Ramos told to the interviewers.
“All I’m thinking about is coming back and finishing the season in the best possible way. There’s no news of my renewal, I wish I could [say something]. I’m calm and I’m only thinking about playing again and winning a trophy.”
Ramos hasn’t played since Madrid were beaten 2-1 by Athletic Club within the Supercopa de Espana on January 14, having undergone surgery on a knee injury. Despite that setback, he believes he still has many time left in his career – as long because the injuries don’t compile.
“You can’t please everyone, but there’s one thing you can’t erase: everything you’ve won. The only thing that worries me is that they know that I’m a real guy, that I gave my soul for the Madrid badge. I’ve always stood up for myself and I’ve always told the truth. I’m honest, humble and hard working. It is on the basis of performance that the player should be judged. I can play five more years at the highest level. If injuries are not too bad, my mentality will help me.”
