Sergio Ramos is on the radar of the English club Manchester City. If the information passed on by the sources close to the club is true, then, Manuel Pellegrini, the man in charge, would be placing an official bid for the 28-year old this winter.
The Sky Blues are planning to offer Ramos an annual salary of about 8 million Pounds to lure him to England. That’s quite an astonishing number.
Chelsea will surely not let City having this deal easily. They will try hard too for the player.
Chelsea had enquired for Ramos the previous winter as well according to the reports which, one can assume, were true as Ramos’ representative had made a claim later on that an English team had come to him with a big offer.
The exact words of the representative in that interview of his are as follows-
“I don’t want to reveal their name, but, I would like to confirm that they’re from England only.”
“Yes, the amount offered was very, very high, but, the player is happy at where he is currently and he is no mood to leave at this point of time. So, I had no choice but to humbly turn the offer down.”
These statements of Ramos’ agent named Rene, who is actually also the Spaniard’s brother, led to the rumours that the unrevealed club was Chelsea.
However, no explanation came from Chelsea’s side on those rumours.
Ramos spent his teenage years at Sevilla learning the soccer skills, but, he did not play much for them. Only at the age of 19, he was possessed by Madrid and he made his name as a World Class defender at Santiago Bernabeu only. He has 415 Madrid caps to his name thus far.
Sergio Ramos was present in the wedding ceremony of Rene, his sibling, last week. He had made his way into the ceremony with his girlfriend Rubio who has recently become the mother of his child.
Ramos was quite relaxed and happy with his family members there. He has obviously seen a bit of a tough time of late with the Spanish national squad, but, it appears that he has moved on from that disappointment now.
The same day, on his twitter account, Ramos uploaded a snap in which he was with his mum as well as Rene. There was immense happiness on the face of the Real Madrid defender.
The name of the girl with whom Rene got married is Vania Millan. She has been Miss Spain in the past.
Ramos might get married himself pretty soon. There have been rumours that he and Rubio have been planning to become husband-wife officially now after the birth of their little one.
There is a 7-year age difference between Ramos and Rubio. While, the former is only 28 at the moment, the latter is in his mid thirties.
Rubio is a renowned personality in Spain. She has presented a lot of programmes on the Spanish television in the last one decade or so.
The pair of Ramos-Rubio is widely liked in Spain and that’s obvious because both of them look so good together and they care for each other immensely too.
Recently in a television programme, Ramos had sung a romantic song for Rubio and had played the guitar as well after which the TV presenter had got really emotional and couldn’t stop her tears.
She was pleasantly surprised by that sweet gesture of his boyfriend.
Ramos and Rubio have been together since a long time.
The 28 years old Spanish defender of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos is a persistent starter for the club despite what manager arrives. He has played during some of the worst time of Madrid as well as some of their best and their recent Copa del Rey victory against Barcelona has been hailed by Ramos to be as a ‘magical moment’ as he spoke to the media when the match was over.
“Today is a magical day. It requires a lot of effort to win titles and this is the fruit of our labor, a reward for all our sacrifice during the year. It is a hugely important title. It was a very tense match and now we have to enjoy the victory because Real Madrid is once again the champion,” Ramos said.
The Copa del Rey was the first silverware that Carlo Ancelotti has secured in his debut season in charge of Real Madrid. Despite all of the tension that surrounds Real Madrid and Barcelona as they have an eternal rivalry which has been displayed on a number of occasions in the pitch when red cards and even punches has been displayed when they play each other, there also exists certain friendships around some players.
Almost 1 month ago was the birthday of Sergio Ramos as he turned 30 years old and there was a rather surprising congratulations message which arrived through Barcelona’s Jordi Alba.
“Today is the birthday of someone who has helped me a great deal. Many happy returns, Sergio Ramos!! All the best, superstar! Alba tweeted.
At the age of 19, Sergio Ramos signed for Real Madrid with a price tag of €27 million becoming the 1st Spanish player that Fiorentino Perez secured since being appointed as the Real Madrid President.
It has been over 10 years since Ramos made his debut a professional level as he started off his career at Sevilla before making his move to Real Madrid and despite having to play and work at such a consistent and high level each week, the Spanish defender insisted in saying that he loves each day that passes and he still envisions himself having the same dreams he had when he was younger.
“What remains of the kid at Sevilla is the same dream of always wanting to win. I still have that today,” he told Marca.
“I wake up every day with a smile and, in that sense; I feel the same as I did when I arrived at Real Madrid in 2005. Then, I was a boy who came to conquer the world and looked forward to achieving great goals. Today, I’ve achieved many of them. The 10 years have gone by very quickly because I have enjoyed it. I wake up every day with tremendous enthusiasm.”
The former Sevilla player had special praise when talking about Carlo Ancelotti as he considers the former coach of Ac.Milan to be the right man in charge of Real Madrid.
“We’ve already had our time with Mourinho, when we had some good times and bad.
“Ancelotti is someone widely revered for his CV, for everything he’s won and his knowledge of the game. He was also a pro so can put himself in a player’s shoes. In that respect, he creates a lot of chemistry and has a very good relationship with the squad. I think we can learn a great deal from him this season and have a successful year.” Ramos responded when he was questioned about the arrival and appointment of Ancelotti as the replacement of Jose Mourinho.
Manchester City is reported to be preparing an offer for the Spanish defender of Real Madrid Sergio Ramos who is suspected to be having problems with the head chiefs of the club allowing the Premier League team to make a move for Ramos.
Signing Ramos from Real Madrid will be hard to accomplish as he has a contract with the club that expires in 2017 however if his relationship with the executives of the club is as bad as rumored, then he might just request a transfer and exit from the club and City will have to make an offer of around €50 million which is the valuation that Ancelotti has for him.
The Former Sevilla player has been a target of criticism in this season as well as the last one, with many people claiming that his career was recently going through a downhill path but Ramos stated that he will not let it stop him from playing his game.
“As I always say, when a teammate makes a mistake you should never point the finger. Just like no one in particular is responsible when the team wins. We win together and lose together”, was Ramos’ riposte when quizzed over the slack marking for Valencia’s two goals.
“If I lingered on what people say… but it goes in one ear and out of the other. I won’t let the criticism get to me: I strive to improve every day. Mark my words – Sergio Ramos is going to be at Real Madrid for many years to come”, Ramos added.
Ramos is a regular player for Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid but recently has had to face a series of physical problems which has not allowed him to perform at his best and according to the Spanish defender, he will use the 2014 as a chance to improve and do what he was not able to accomplish in this year.
“I´m not at my best level, but I trust in myself completely” Ramos said.
