Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos was offered a bid of £28.6m ($A59m) by Manchester United, as SKY Sports report on June 30, 2015. Still from the same sports news source, Sky stated that Ramos has told Madrid that he wanted to leave his club and joined Manchester United to Louis van Gaal’s side. The news has spread both in British and Spanish media that made Real Madrid defender thinks to move to Old Trafford in recent weeks. The defender who has two years left on his contract at the Bernabeu stated clearly that he wanted to move away.
Graham Hunter, the Sky Sports Spanish football expert, had high expectation that the deal would go through since the player himself has made a clear statement to Madrid that he wanted to move. Hunter told Sky Sports News HQ that Ramos has told Madrid directly that he was absolutely and completely committed to leaving the club this summer and that he specifically wanted them to start negotiations with Manchester United and he did not want them to negotiate with anybody but Manchester United.
Concerning Ramos’s statement, people have been questioning his intention whether Manchester United are only being used by him when he played a couple of summers ago and when Cesc Fabregas looked like he might be available to David Moyes.
From Manchester’s side, they display a firm intention in Ramos that they want someone who will form part of a firm spine of the team, who knows how to win, who has experience of winning, who has character and talent as regeneration under Louis van Gaal in the last season. They see that Ramos was the focal point of that development and it is the reason behind the bid they offer to him. If Ramos leaves Real Madrid, they can be under no illusions and Ramos himself expects them to comply.
Moreover, Ramos felt slighted by the renegotiation of other players’ contracts that happened around him when he was coming to that age and when the new contract would be the best thing of what remains of his career. He would also felt unhappy with the club since they did not dismiss the story that he had been offered to Barcelona. It seems that the communication between Madrid president, Florentino Perez and Ramos, a captain is not going well. As we know that Ramos is a bold and brave football player and it can be seen from his character. He believed that the bid offered to him matches his current value.
