The cauldron at the Santiago Bernabeu seems to have no limit to its boiling ability, bringing in daily, newer episodes and dimensions to the lingering crisis between 29 year-old defender, Sergio Ramos and the club’s president, Florentino Perez. The player appears to have a major problem with his current contract, which is due to expire in 2017.
It is reported that the player has in recent times, pushed for an exit from the club, and is in fact close to making an open announcement of his desire to leave the club; while also allegedly stating that his services rendered so far merit a more lucrative contract than the current one.
In the light of this, and with the Madrid heirarchy seemingly unwilling to bulge to what they deem as unnecessary, clubs within and outside Spain have begun intensifying their efforts to land the services of the versatile defender. Manchester United, in a desperate bid to bolster up their squad ahead of the new season, appear to lead the race for his services. However, only time would tell if a deal for his ransfer would eventually be reached; as the heavy €200 million buy-out clause in the player’s contract still holds…though it is believed that the Club’s management are willing to listen to offers in the region of €60 million.
The player himself, holds a world-class pedigree, and would certainly be a great signing for any manager who would successfully acquire his services, particularly for Louis van Gaal, who is keen to make a firmchallenge for the 2015/2016 EPL title.
