Madrid coach Benitez did not have much to say on the Ramos issue, only that the defender is going nowhere.
The Spanish defender has been captaining Benitez’s Madrid side, amidst interest from united.
Pressed on whether or not the Spain international will start the new Liga season with the Blancos, the head coach said: “Yes, for me, 100 percent.
“Ramos is our player, he’s a key player for us, he’s the captain. I would like to see him [at the club] at the beginning of the season, because I think he will be crucial for us during the season.
“I insist that it is clear for both me and the club that Sergio will be here. Football is a curious world, but he will be playing for us next season.”
