Sergio Ramos ruled out for iconic Champions League clash vs Real Madrid

Two years ago, the institution of Real Madrid was best represented by a certain Spanish World Cup winner named Sergio Ramos. His loyalty towards his club could never be questioned, for he had always given his sweat and blood to the Galacticos.

After 16 long and successful years as the Santiago Bernabeu, Ramos bid farewell to his home in the summer after he failed to reach an agreement with the club over an extension. While Ramos wanted a two-year extension, Los Blancos were only willing to commit to one.

Ultimately, the legendary centre-back found his way to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. Unsurprisingly, one of the biggest stories of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw was that Ramos would return to the Bernabeu, albeit in different colours.

Sadly, according to reports from RMC Sport, the World Cup winner is ruled out of the Champions League clash between PSG and Real Madrid later this week.

The 35-year-old is said to be suffering from a minor calf injury that he suffered late last month. His spell in France so far has been injury-riddled, with him only making four Ligue 1 appearances so far.

In his last game for the French side, Ramos put up a defensive masterclass. He made four clearances, three tackles, an interception, and won nine duels in a game to remember. Moreover, he also got on the scoresheet on the night.

The world awaits to see Ramos take on Real Madrid this season. However, it seems like one would have to wait for the return leg to witness the sight.

With the 2023/24 season entering the final phase, planning for the summer window is already underway. And Real Madrid have several important decisions to make, not only regarding signings but also some of their current players.

A number of players have their contracts expiring at the end of the season and their futures will need to be resolved in the weeks to come.

While Luka Modric looks set to depart, Toni Kroos is expected to sign a renewal and Nacho Fernandez could also continue at the club. That leaves Lucas Vazquez, who also sees his contract run down on June 30, 2024.

Real Madrid intend to renew Vazquez

Now, MARCA is reporting that Real Madrid intend to offer Lucas Vazquez a one-year extension that will keep him at the club until 2025.

The La Fabrica product has done a brilliant job deputising for Dani Carvajal as the second-choice right-back and the Merengues are happy with what he has offered.

As such, the plan is now to offer Vazquez a new contract for an additional year which would prolong his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2025.

So far this term, the Spaniard has featured in 26 matches across all competitions, even chipping in with a goal and four assists.

Vazquez might not be the biggest name on the roster, but he is seen as a valuable member of the dressing room, someone who is a model professional and acts as a conduit between the seniors and the younger members.

Vazquez enjoys the full trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti and the club, and as such, it will not come as a surprise to see him sign a new deal.
