Yesterday, Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos, during a press-conference confirmed that he won’t be leaving the club.
The 32-year-old was rumoured to join a club in the Chinese Super League.
Sergio cleared all the doubts. “I’m a madridista and I want to retire here at Real Madrid,” he said.
“I have always said that I would never leave Real Madrid, I would be willing to play here for free. I’m happy with my salary and my contract, the president knows we’ve to talk about it, but now I don’t care,” said an emotional Ramos.
“China offer was on the table, but I wasn’t going to leave, not for free nor for any money,” he added.
Ramos joined the club from Sevilla back in 2005. He has won everything with the club.
Most importantly, he became the first captain in modern era to lift not only two but also three Champions league titles in a row.
He scored the most important goal in the club’s history, which ended a 12-year wait for continental glory.
Sergio was asked about his relationship with The President, to which he replied, “There were things that bothered and hurt me and that it was better to talk face to face with Florentino Pérez. The president and I have a father-son relationship, he has always shown special affection for me in any kind of decision.”
Revolution at the club
Real Madrid had a torrid 2018-19 season, with talisman Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the club to join Juventus.
The club clearly missed a star figure after the Portuguese’s departure.
One of the reporters from the Spanish media even asked him about the clubs plan of bringing Eden Hazard to the club.
Sergio Ramos said that it’s all up to the president.
“I hope a player like Hazard comes, who can contribute a lot to Real Madrid,” he added.
