Real Madrid rule out Sergio Ramos departure – ever!

Posted on October 16, 2013 by admin

Despite a wealth of rumours doing the rounds this week, Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez has announced he has ruled out selling Sergio Ramos in January and it is entirely understandable why the club’s president is so keen to keep the defender firmly where he belongs at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, with big spenders Manchester City keen on signing the Spain international. Although City are 11/5 with Paddy Power to win the league, their boss Manuel Pellegrini has been struggling with injuries in defence and bringing in a utility player like Ramos would significantly boost their options at the back.

But why on earth would Real let him go?

Not only is Ramos a player who knows what it takes to play under pressure at the Bernabeu but he has won plenty of silverware at both club and international level.  With the sometimes difficult dressing room at the club, Ramos always seems to be at the heart of pictures of the players messing around at the training ground or on the way to games.

Having someone popular like that at a club is key in keeping the squad happy off the field, which inevitably helps to lead to positive results on the field of play. Madrid will need that this season if they want to justify their odds of 5/1 to win the Champions League.

That is not to overlook the fact that Ramos is a top player in his position and gives absolutely everything for the white shirt every time he takes the field. These attributes have not been overlooked by Perez, who is a big admirer of Ramos and wants the player to hang up his boots in the Spanish capital when it comes to retiring.

He told Marca: “To Sergio Ramos, I have much affection. He will retire here. There are no offers for him because they know we will not sell him. We will deal with his renewal at the appropriate time.”
