Is Really Sergio Ramos leaving Real Madrid to PSG ?
At the end of the contract next June, Sergio Ramos is in advanced negotiations with the management of Real Madrid to extend it. On Monday, the Spaniard and his president Florentino Perez will give a press conference… to announce a departure, or the other way round?
In 229 days, Sergio Ramos (34) will no longer be a player at Real Madrid, the club he joined in 2005 when he was only 19 years old. At least that’s what his contract says, which will end on 1 July. And anxiety is growing in the Spanish capital because, from January and the opening of the winter mercato, the central defender will be free to negotiate with the team of his choice for a “free” arrival a few months later.
The PSG seen as a threat Obviously
the White House didn’t wait for this day to launch the extension operation of its historic captain. For many months, the two parties have been in advanced negotiations, but nothing is filtering through the press. Apart from the existence of a threat, which often comes up when the future of a major player is uncertain: Paris Saint-Germain, a weighty argument in Ramos’ hand to put pressure on his leaders.
Indeed, according to the news programme El Chiringuito, the reigning French champion is on the lookout to recruit the Madrid-born player, and is even prepared to offer him an XXL salary to end his career in Ligue 1. If PSG’s interest in Ramos remains credible, despite the recent departure of Thiago Silva (36 years old) who has the same profile, this rumour also allows the Spaniard to raise the stakes with Real Madrid.
AS bets on an extension
A question now arises: did Ramos get what he wanted from the Madrid management, or did he agree with the PSG? At first glance, these are the only two options on the table. And the one who won 22 titles with the Merengue will put an end to the suspense in two days time! According to information from AS, the capital of Real and the Spanish national team will hold a press conference this Monday in Seville, its home city, on the fringes of the La Roja gathering.
A highly symbolic place to announce his departure, or his intention to stay at Real for life? Again according to AS, we are heading towards the second option. Especially since its president Florentino Perez will speak at the same time, at the Cadena SER. What to let think that Ramos took the decision to chain a 17th consecutive season within the White House, but it will be necessary to wait until Monday to have the heart of it net.
