Ramos is currently out with an injury and his contract with Madrid is set to expire this summer.

The 34-year-old is yet to agree terms on an extension and manager Zinedine Zidane is growing frustrated at the speculation.

When asked about the situation, he remarked to AS: "You always ask me the same thing - that's impressive mate. I want him to get fit, but apart from that, nothing else."
