Manchester City remains very attentive to the situation of Sergio Ramos and is considering offering him a more objective two-year contract if the Spanish defender doesn't finally renew his contract with Real Madrid.
According to what was published by ESPN, Pep Guardiola highly values the experience of the white captain and the English club are studying transferring an offer to him as it would depend on the state of form and the long-term priorities of the player.
In this way, Ramos could extend his stay in the City for a third season if his performance allows it or he would have the possibility of having an affair with the English club's franchise in MLS, New York City. Ramos, who ends his contract with Madrid on June 30, continues to prioritize renewing with the white club but would be willing to change of scene in the event that he doesn't reach an agreement with President Florentino Pérez.
In this sense, a meeting between the captain and the president is scheduled in the next few days to make a final decision. Negotiations for the renewal of Ramos have been stalled since the beginning of the season and, already last January, he had been interested in his situation.
Guardiola's City lost the Champions League final to Chelsea with two young center-backs such as Rubén Dias (24 years old) and John Stones (27) and considers that a footballer with the leadership of Ramos would give a leap in competitiveness and experience to your squad in those kinds of matches.
However, Eric García will leave the team to return to Barcelona, Nathan Ake is 26 years old and the future of an Aymeric Laporte who has just turned 27 years old is in the air after a season in which he has gone from undisputed to substitute.
Guardiola is looking for a leader for the defense since the departure of Vincent Kompany and considers that Ramos meets the requirements despite the fact that this season he has only played 21 games due to various injuries.
In fact, the English club manages ‘big data’ records that reveal that Ramos’s physical performance is that of a much younger player and that’s why they are considering offering him a two-year contract.
Ramos already knows that City is lurking, but he wants to hear from Florentino before making a final decision. The captain asks that Madrid also guarantee him two years but so far the white club only gives him one as they usually do with footballers who pass 30 years.
