Sergio Ramos turns down contract offer on Real Madrid table
Sergio Ramos’ future at Real Madrid beyond this season is becoming increasingly uncertain following suggestions in Spain that he has now rejected the offer of a new contract at the Bernabeu.
Ramos will become a free agent at the end of June if no deal is reached and is already being watched by all clubs in the Premier League’s “Big Six” – Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.
Ramos has so far been unable to reach an agreement with Real on wages, resulting in negotiations stalling. The 34-year-old is also believed to be looking for a longer deal than the club were willing to give.
Marca’s latest now is that he turned down the offer at Real’s table, which would be on terms similar to his current contract, not including the additional pay cut that players were forced to accept. this season amid the coronavirus crisis. .
It is said that the situation changed very suddenly as things were still considered “normal” on January 1st. But despite the threat of losing their longest-serving player and talisman, Los Blancos are digging in and Marca adds he’s not ready to change positions.
Real would be saddened to see Ramos from a football perspective, but the way the club has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic could lead to more than just short-term concessions and shape a more measured and sustainable approach for the longer term future.
But while re-signing Ramos, who 90 mins has been ranked as the second best center-back in the world as the contract he wants may not be financially viable for Real Madrid, his potential availability could still attract the attention of England’s top teams.
90 mins previously revealed in November that all top Premier League sides had expressed interest in signing Ramos if he decided to move on.
These clubs have already been in contact with the player’s side to let it be known that he will have offers from England if he really wants to leave Madrid. But the air of skepticism is significant as Manchester United in particular got burned in their very public pursuit of Ramos in 2015.
Ramos himself may not even choose England as there is no shortage of offers from elsewhere and he has walked away from the Premier League in the past.
