Zinedine Zidane has stated that he “has no doubts” that Sergio Ramos will sign a new contract after scoring his 100th goal for Real Madrid.
The Spaniard netted the century goal for Los Blancos in a 3-2 Champions League win over Inter Milan on Tuesday.
Ramos has less than a year of contract and could be transferred freely next summer.
But Zidane, who won his first European win of the season, believes it is unlikely the 34-year-old will leave the Bernabeu.
“As always, he is our captain, our leader,” said the Real Madrid boss after the game.
“We want him to be here forever, that’s what he’s doing, showing that he’s always wanted. I have no doubt that he will stay and that will continue to make history.
Ramos reached an important milestone in the performance in the first half to help Real take the lead in group B.
After only gaining one point in the opening match, the pressure is on Zidane’s legions to get a positive result.
Goals from Karim Benzema and Ramos put the home side in command, only having to give up the lead after goals from Lautaro Martinez and Ivan Perisic.
However, with ten minutes remaining, Rodrygo scored the decisive goal that gave the La Liga champions a solid foothold in this year’s competition.
After Real’s provisional home win and the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium, Ramos thought the results were more important than his personal performance.
“Personal performance is secondary, but you love hitting them and as long as they keep helping the team win, hopefully I can win a few more goals.
Ramos added: “It was a difficult game, but we were able to achieve a good result in the end and win three very important points.
“We know it’s a life-and-death game and when you’re pegged to a draw in a match you’re winning, you need to move on. We’ll let them lose interest a little bit and in the Champions League you can’t afford to do that. “
