Ramos has suffered from a knee injury and muscular problems this year and he has only recently recovered from Covid-19, in a period of time in which he has been blighted by misfortune.

It is a particularly timely boost in Real Madrid news following confirmation that right-back Dani Carvajal will miss the rest of the season through injury.
