Sergio Ramos has opened up on his Real Madrid future – and believes he can still play at the top level for another five years.
The 34-year-old will be out of contract this summer and is currently on the sidelines after having knee surgery.
Ramos is yet to agree a new Bernabeu deal, with some suggestions stating that his decision to have surgery now is a clear indication that he is thinking of a summer move.
The veteran defender is currently available to talk to clubs outside of Spain regarding a free transfer switch.
As such, he has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United. Indeed, Ramos has been a target for the Red Devils for some time. However, rumours have gathered pace due to his current contract situation.
Ramos though is paying little attention to links with United though could not provide an update on his situation at Real.
“I wish I could say something, but everything remains the same,” Ramos told reporters.
“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 shrugs off injury issues
Ramos, however, is adamant he can extend his career at the top level by another five years – taking him close to his 40th birthday.
That’s despite the defender being sidelined since sustaining a knee injury against Atletico Madrid on January 14.
“You can’t please everyone, but there’s one thing you can’t erase: everything you’ve won,” he said.
“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.”
