Sergio Ramos has made a decision to leave Real Madrid this summer. AS have been informed that the defender whose contract expires in 2017 when he will be 31 is annoyed with events over the past few days. A lack of official communication from the club to deny his link with Barça pre-candidate for club presidency, Jordi Majó was the tipping point.
Ramos does not want to be another player who has to leave the club under a cloud as was the case with Vicente Del Bosque, Hierro, Raúl and if everything materializes as anticipated, goalkeeper, Iker Casillas. The defender feels that he is undervalued and has his mind firmly made up. For this reason, he is prepared to move to another club with no salary increase expectations, (he’s currently on €6 million euro net per year). Money is not the player’s motivation and as yet there have been no offers but now the Sevilla born defender will now listen to bids from those club’s looking to bolster their central defense, such as Manchester United, Manchester City or PSG.
The Madrid defender was involved in contract re-negotiation talks with the club and is angered with stories being filtered from Real Madrid that create a negative image with the insinuation that the financial aspect of any deal was always the key aspect in his negotiation. Sergio Ramos has a buy-out clause of €200 million. The player wants to re-negotiate this figure so that any bid would be more attractive for the club rather than retaining the defender until 2017 when he would be in a position to leave Real Madrid as a free agent.
