Spanish media believe that Sergio Ramos will wait for the end of his contract with Real in the summer of 2021 to join an English team.
According to radio station Onda Cero, the contract extension negotiations between Sergio Ramos and Real’s leadership are at a standstill. The 34-year-old midfielder started thinking about leaving the Royal team after receiving a few offers from England and Italy. In the past, Ramos disagreed with President Florentino Perez in March 2019, when Real lost Ajax 1-4 in the Champions League. At that time, the Real captain was said to have a fierce argument with Perez and challenged the boss to compensate for the contract.
Despite his age, Ramos is still the top center-back in the world. Last season, he was even the number two striker of Real in La Liga with 11 goals. So far, Ramos has played 661 games for Real and scored 100 goals. The problem between Ramos and the Real leadership is the salary of the 34-year-old player. According to Onda Cero, former midfielder Sevilla is pocketing $ 264,000 a week. Real does not want to continue to pay a huge salary when Ramos enters the end of his career. In addition, the Bernabeu team is not ready to invite Ramos a contract longer than a year.
Ramos will turn 35 in March 2021 and in the context of Covid-19 causing the decline in revenue, Real is forced to carefully consider the contract terms. Real has a habit of only extending one year with pillars over 30 years old. In the past, Cristiano Ronaldo was the only exception. “Los Blancos” signed a four-year contract with Ramos in 2017 when he was 30. Currently, the signing of such a long-term contract is almost impossible. “I have no doubts about Ramos staying”, coach Zinedine Zidane said about his student’s future after winning Inter in the Champions League on November 26.
According to AS, PSG really wants the service of Ramos and is ready to present a three-year contract with an after-tax salary of 23 million USD / season. However, Ramos is more interested in the prospect of playing in the Premier League and is receiving a few offers from the mist. Ramos has been with Real Madrid for 15 years, since leaving Sevilla to join the Bernabeu in the summer of 2005 for a transfer fee of 27 million euros. Since then, he has always been an important link in the squad of the Royal team in any coaching dynasty.
