Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has withdrawn from a scheduled press conference as speculation continues to grow that he could leave the club at the end of this season.
The 34-year-old centre-back has spent 15 years at the Bernabeu but his contract is set to expire in June and he has yet to sign an extension.
It has been reported that he is demanding an extra two years in order to agree to a new deal, which is something Madrid are reluctant to offer, and he has recently been linked with a move to PSG.
According to Marca, Ramos was due to speak to the media on Monday ahead of Spain's game against Germany on Wednesday, but has now decided not to, with Manchester City's Rodri instead taking his place.
It has not been confirmed exactly why Ramos has withdrawn, but there are suggestions he is keen to avoid questions about his future while it is still up in the air.
The news comes in the midst of a tumultuous few days for Ramos, after he missed two penalties during Spain's 1-1 draw with Switzerland at the weekend.
He did, however, set the record to become the most capped male European player on the same night, with his 177 caps taking him past Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.
At the end of last season Los Blancos president Florentino Perez insisted Ramos would retire at Madrid.
"Ramos will finish his career at Madrid. He is more than a captain," Perez said.
"He will continue as long as he wants, he knows it. As long as he wants and has the strength, and as he has strength I think he will be with us for many years."
