Sergio Ramos spoke in press conference, surprisingly, to be clear about his future after the rumours triggered in the last days. The captain confirmed that he wants to retire at Real Madrid because he is a madridista, so he won’t leave the club towards China even if he admitted that he showed Florentino Pérez an important offer from a Chinese club.
Days of storm came into the Spanish capital after the captain filtered to the press that he wanted to leave the club. Sergio Ramos had a meeting with Florentino Pérez where he presented an offer from a Chinese club and asked the president to let him go for free, because the Chinese clubs cannot pay any money for the transfer fee. Florentino Pérez told this week to the press that he rejected this offer because he won’t “let go the Real Madrid captain for free”.
After all these facts, Sergio Ramos had to speak in public to close the rumours. He said one thing and the contrary. The captain admitted that he had an offer from China, but he said both things: he didn’t think about leaving and he studied the offer. Besides, he blamed the journalists about all the rumours, even if his brother and agent René Ramos was the one filtering this information.
At least, Ramos swear eternal love to Real Madrid. “I’m a madridista and I want to retire at Real Madrid”. He also said that there isn’t any issue with the money and that he didn’t want to renew his contract yet: “I would play for free at Real Madrid”.
The captain also spoke about the relationship between him and Florentino Pérez. Many journalists inform that they don’t get along very well and the president is very annoyed for the yellow card seen at Amsterdam Arena and the documentary filmed when Los Blancos were been thrashed by Ajax at home. “Florentino and me have a relationship like father and son. He has always showed me a special affection”.
