Reports emanating from Spain this evening suggest that Sergio Ramos could be on the verge of leaving Real Madrid in the transfer window with Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United on red alert.
Ramos, 24, has been at the Bernabeu since 2005 when he moved from Sevilla for a fee in the region of 27 million euros. The talented defender who can play at right back and centre-half was a key member of Spain’s European Championship win in 2008 and their World Cup win last summer.
The Madrid defender is considered one of the top defenders in world football and has been linked previously with the aforementioned English quartet. The versatile stopper will not be short of suitors if reports are confirmed that the club are open to offers for the Spanish international.
Reports in Spain suggest the reason for a move is a fall-out with star player Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as a breakdown in the re-negotiation of the player's new long-term deal at the Bernabeu. There is a suggestion Ronaldo has divided opinion in the Madrid locker room to such an extent, Ramos is seriously considering quitting the Bernabeu.
Renowned Le Parisien French football journalist Julien Laurens based in London, broke the news, revealing on his Twitter page that the talented Madrid defender could leave the Spanish giants.
“I've been told that Sergio Ramos could leave #RealMadrid. He would be perfect at #arsenal. World class player who'll bring winning mentality.”
