Sergio Ramos has held showdown transfer talks with Real Madrid and reportedly told the Spanish club to listen to offers for his services.
The Spain international still has two years to run on his current contract with Los Blancos but the defender is unhappy with the terms of the renewal that he has been offered to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ramos’ relationship with Madrid president Florentino Perez is also said to have broken down so it was the club’s general director, Jose Angel Sanchez, who organised a meeting with the World Cup winner and his brother and agent Rene at Valdebebas on Wednesday.
During the sit-down, the versatile centre-half reportedly told Sanchez that while he does not want to leave, he would like the club to keep him informed of any offers for him.
Pedro Riesco, who works with Rene, now believes that Ramos is bound for the exit door, claiming that the 29-year-old feels that he has been the victim of a smear campaign by someone inside the club.
“With everything that has happened it will be very difficult for Sergio Ramos to stay at Madrid,” Reisco toldRadio Marca.
“Sergio is a symbol of this club. He has nothing to prove. But so many things are being said about him.
“There is so much manipulation to discredit his name via spokesmen who behave like puppets saying he is not respecting the club and that he is just a money-grabber.”
Manchester United are interested in Ramos, whose buy-out clause stands at €200 million, and are hoping to make him a part of Madrid’s move for Red Devils goalkeeper David de Gea.
In addition, Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Majo has claimed that he has been offered Ramos.
Ramos has been a regular in the Real starting line-up since joining the capital outfit from Sevilla in 2005 and has won three Liga titles, two Copa del Rey trophies and one Champions League during his time at the Bernabeu.
