Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has responded to Arrigo Sacchi’s claims that the delay over a contract extension at the club are because of money.

The former Italian manager told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Ramos had sought him out for advice on a recent visit to Valdebebas. According to Sacchi, Ramos told him he was concerned about signing a new deal with the 10-time Champions League winners because he knew club president Florentino Perez would offer less money.

“I spoke to my friend Sergio Ramos at the end of the session. He asked me what I thought about his contract problems. He told me: ‘I want to renew my contract, but Florentino is offering me less money. What do you think?'” the Italian said. He added that he told Ramos to stay at the club, citing the examples of Andrei Shevchenko and Kaka at AC Milan, who left the club for more money but saw their careers dwindle.
In response to the claims, Ramos told his followers on Twitter that he’s not worried about his renewal and he’s not motivated by money.

“With all the love and respect to Sacchi, I’m not worried about my renewal. I’ve never been driven by money,” he replied. “The happiness of myself and my family is above everything.”
