The former manager of the club believes that Madrid will not make the same mistake in the case of Ramos.
Jorge Valdano who is the former Real Madrid player and the coach does not want to worry about the current captain of Real Madrid Sergio Ramos.A mistake like what? Their great mistake was to let their key player Cristiano Ronaldo go. Now, the same thing is going to happen. Real Madrid has not renewed the contract with Sergio Ramos yet. Still, Valdano hopes to see Sergio Ramos at the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.
Real Madrid’s Current Performance
The current season is not going too well for the current La Liga champion. Yes, they have finished the Champions League group round by holding the top position but in La Liga, they are not too good. Considering the points, they are four points behind the top-ranked team Atletico Madrid though the team of Simeone played two fewer matches than Real Madrid.
Besides, Barcelona is chasing them clearly. If they stumble in their next league match, Barcelona will touch their points. At the same time, the team of Zinedine Zidane has been ruled out from the Copa del Rey competition, and now, Barcelona is going to play the final against the team Athletic Club which beat Real Madrid in the semi-final.

Real Madrid will not make the same mistake
However, Real Madrid might not be thinking about the points difference with the top-ranked team but they are worried about their captain Sergio Ramos too much.
In the next June, his agreement with the club will be ended but the four-times Champions League winner Ramos has not agreed with the terms of renewing his contract with Real Madrid yet. The conditions are not satisfying him, the report says. So, he has not signed the deal.
The Club’s Mistake
Everyone knows about the mistake of Real Madrid when they did in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo. After winning the hat-trick Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo told the club to increase his salary. But the club president Florentino Perez did not like that. He thought that it was not logical to keep CR7 at the Bernabeu with such a big amount. Instead of him, he kept his faith in Gareth Bale. As a result, by making the record transfer, Cristiano moved to the Italian side Juventus.
Real Madrid want Sergio Ramos to take a pay cut in order to remain at the club, according to ABC 🗣

On the other side, when CR7 left, Bale failed to fill the gap of Cristiano. So, Real Madrid faced some terrible seasons. After Cristiano’s departure, in the inaugural season, Real Madrid won nothing except the Club World Cup. Later, when Zidane returns, Real Madrid won the Spanish Super Cup and La Liga but still, the Champions League title is out of reach.
Within only nine years, Cristiano Ronaldo has become the highest goalscorer in Real Madrid and the club has not found his successor yet. It seems that the Spanish champion will suffer for him still. Now, Sergio Ramos is playing for the club for almost twelve years. He is not just keeping the defense safe but in a difficult moment, Ramos used to bring goals and lead the team to victory. In the football world, it would be hard to find such a captain no doubt.
So, Valdano thought that Real Madrid will not make the same mistake in the case of Ramos! They will not let Ramos leave the club. He told an online news portal that Ramos will make a new deal with Real Madrid. If he will not do so, both parties will be responsible for that. But why? The former Real Madrid manager also revealed that. In the case of Cristiano, the same thing happened. As a result, Real Madrid has lost the Champions League and Cristiano has lost Ballon d’Or!
