Sergio Ramos has shed new light on his Real Madrid future amid growing speculations about his summer departure.
Ramos has been an always-present figure at the Santiago Bernabeu since swapping Sevilla for Real Madrid in 2005.
During his trophy-laden 16-year spell in the Spanish capital, the experienced defender has captained his side to record-breaking three consecutive Champions League titles.
The 35-year-old has amassed over 710 appearances for Los Blancos en route to lifting 22 major titles, including five La Liga crowns and four Champions League trophies.
Currently sidelined with a knee injury, Ramos has become a subject of transfer rumors linking him with a move away from Madrid.
The Spanish center-back has entered the final few months of his contract in the capital, with no signs of a breakthrough in extension talks on the horizon.
Widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the history of the game, Ramos’ leadership and goalscoring capabilities are in high demand despite his age.
AC Milan and several Premier League sides have registered an interest in the renowned Spaniard, who has yet to provide clarity on his fate.

During his latest interview with Iban Llanos, a famous Spanish Twitch streamer, Ramos answered some hard-hitting questions regarding his future.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty. I would like to say something, but there’s nothing new,” he said.
“I would actually love to do it. All I can think about is going back from the injury and finish the season in the best way possible.
“But, there’s nothing fresh about my contract extension. I can guarantee to communicate whatever I know, as soon as there is something to share.
“For now, I remain calm. All I think about is enjoying this year. Despite my age, Santiago Bernabeu said there are no young or old players: there are only good or bad players.
“I believe I can still play great football for three, four, or even five more years. If the body can hold for longer and I don’t get injured, I think I can still play at the highest level.
“The focus is on working hard to make that happen, and my mentality will always be that way.”
