After not reaching an agreement with Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos decided to end his 16-year cycle with the Spanish team, where he won 22 titles. The experienced defender, who is in the sights of several big teams in Europe, will have to decide where he will play his last years in elite football.

This Thursday at a press conference, Sergio Ramos spoke for the first time officially about his departure from Real Madrid. At 36 years old, the legend of the institution will go looking for a new destination for his career, but from what he told reporters it was clearly not his wish. According to his version of events, he wanted to continue defending the Merengue shirt: in the last talks he accepted a contract year instead of two and a reduction in his salary, but the response of the leadership was that the offer had a date of expiration had already passed, and he never found out.

Sergio Ramos explained the reason for his departure from Real Madrid

"A lot has happened. The first thing I want to say is that I have never wanted to leave. My purpose was to continue here. I go back to the League of confinement: as a result, the club offered me the possibility of extending my contract, but due to Covid, it was left on the sidelines. In recent months, the club has made me an offer of one year with a salary reduction. I have to say money was never a problem. I wanted two years and peace of mind for myself and my family In the last talks, I accept the one-year offer, but I am told that it was no longer possible, that it had an expiration date and I had not found out. "

 

Sergio Ramos and his relationship with Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid

"My relationship with the president has always been good. From father and son to sport. He is the person who brought me here. I will never make a statement against him. In families there are also fights." Then, he added more details about the negotiations for his renewal: "The conditions have been changing, both for him and for ours.

At that point, a decision had to be made, but I had never been told that my offer had an expiration date. It's respectable, but I was surprised that the offer I had had expired. " In addition, he referred to the meetings he had with the Merengue boss: "They are private meetings. I want to keep private. There are things that are very personal.

I am informed through my agent that the offer had expired and we were we were surprised. I also let him know that I accepted the last offer, although it was already late. I don't want any kind of resentment. I stay with the family, this is a see you later and they will always be in my heart. "

His possible destinations

One of the clubs that Ramos could go looking for is Manchester City. According to the AS media, the player's environment has maintained contact with leaders of the English team, with the aim of reaching an agreement in the event that the defender decides to end his relationship with the Merengues.

Another possible destination for the former Real Madrid captain is United. The Red Devils, who had already tried to negotiate with Ramos in 2015, are looking for a center back who can accompany Harry Maguire on defense.

Also, another interested in Ramos is PSG. The president of the French team, together with the sports director, are in the quest to build a squad with which they can win the Champions League. Another reason why the Parisian club would go in search of the former Real Madrid is that, after the departure of Thiago Silva, they have not had an experienced central defender.

Finally, Sevilla, a team in which Ramos was formed and which could make a large outlay for the defender, has also appeared on the road. However, the arrival of the former merengue to the Spanish team is thought almost impossible, since the financial claims of the footballer would be very high.
