Ramos wants Cannavaro to sign new deal

Cannavaro’s contract will expire at the end of the season.

“If it were up to me, I would renew his contract as soon as possible,” Ramos told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “He is healthy and provides the team with solidity and experience.

“Just the simple fact that he is playing at this level, despite his age, speaks volumes. He is a great professional in every respect. He is a positive influence both on the pitch and in the locker room.”

Cannavaro has been linked with a return to his hometown club Napoli in recent months.
