The Blancos manager is attached to a deal until 2022 and would like to see new deals with key men on the field thrashed out.
Sergio Ramos will sign a new deal at Real Madrid and spend many years” with the club, Zinedine Zidane claims, but the Frenchman maintains he is not searching for new terms of his own.
The Blancos have a variety of players expected at the end of the season to enter free agency.
Talismanic club captain Ramos falls into that group, with an extension yet to be decided by the World Cup champion.
Zidane thinks that an agreement will be made with the 34-year-old defender and that when it comes to preparing for the future, those on the pitch will continue to be a priority.
When asked about contract negotiations and whether he would like to be part of those discussions, the Frenchman told reporters: ‘I have a contract until 2022. So I will not ask for anything.
“I will continue to work. I’m glad that I’m at this fantastic club. I’m fortunate to say I’m at the world’s best club. I just hope the players can stay and we can continue to work with them.
“That means a lot when a player wants to stay. I can see him remaining with Sergio Ramos for several years now. He looks after himself well, and I’m not shocked by what he does.
True, who rediscovered a late spark after stumbling out of the blocks in 2020-21, will be back at Eibar on Sunday in La Liga action.
As the Brazilian youngster struggles with illness, Zidane has revealed that Vinicius Junior is unlikely to play any role in that game, although no chances will be taken on Eden Hazard as the Belgian forward recovers from his current injury setback.
