With no progress in contract extension talks, it is starting to look like Los Blancos must learn to live without their talismanic captain.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has refused to discuss the future of Sergio Ramos at the club.
Real Madrid will be once again without Ramos when they take to the pitch to face Real Sociedad in La Liga on Monday.
The Spanish center-back has missed each of the side’s last seven matches due to injury, having last featured in the goalless draw against Osasuna on January 9.
Meanwhile, speculations about his future continue to rage with the 34-year-old’s contract expiring at the end of the season.
He has been linked with several of Europe’s heavyweights as the La Liga champions continue to struggle to tie their talismanic captain down to fresh terms.
Reports even claim that Ramos, who is free to speak with other clubs, has held talks with former Real Madrid star David Beckham over a potential move to Manchester United.
“You always ask me the same thing – he’s an impressive man,” Zidane responded when asked about Ramos’ future during Sunday’s pre-match press conference, via Goal.
“I want him to get fit, but apart from that, nothing else. Tomorrow we have a game.”
