Sergio Ramos agrees new Real Madrid dealOctober 7, 2017
Sergio Ramos has agreed a new deal with Spanish and European champions Real Madrid.
The Spanish centre-back has agreed a contract extension to 2021, according to Spanish daily Marca and will pen his new deal in the coming weeks.
Reports claim that the captain of Madrid will now join Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale as the three best paid players at the Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo is eagerly waiting on his contract talks with club president Florentino Perez.
A summer of discontent for Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu was quite surprising with numerous reports claiming the former Manchester United forward wanted to return to Old Trafford.
Talk of a unhappy Ronaldo surfaced with reports saying he had felt hurt and let down by the Spanish club after court proceedings began against him over unpaid taxes.
Rumours swept across Spain and England, but in truth they were silenced by Neymar’s sensational move from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain.
Now, months past the summer break and with the season in full flow – those reports seem to be surfacing once more.
Ronaldo, who has only featured in two La Liga matches for Madrid so far due to a suspension; is yet to hear back from Florentino Perez over a new and improved contract – which the Portuguese international is said to be demanding due to the wealthy wages of Neymar at PSG and Lionel Messi’s upcoming new deal with Barca.
Madrid’s form this season has been less than inspiring with Zinedine Zidane’s side failing to win at home and sitting sixth in the league.
Ronaldo, who has been the main protagonist at the club over recent seasons now finds himself amongst a wealth of young talent, with both Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio improving on a weekly basis.
Whilst a new deal remains likely; expect English and Spanish media to reignite those rumours of a return back to Man United.
