The president of Barcelona FC, Sandro Rosell, has made it clear that the club is not planning to sign the Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos. In the last few days, there have been rumours that La Blaugrana is keen to have Ramos in the squad. But, Rosell has denied all those reports.
The Barcelona president said, “All these reports are rumours. We don’t want to sign Ramos. There hasn’t been any talk in our camp regarding Ramos. I don’t know where these reports have come from.”
Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two heavyweight football clubs of Spain. These two clubs are the arch rivals in La Liga and very rarely does it happen that a player gets transferred from Real Madrid to Barcelona or vice versa. And whenever it happens, the supporters don’t take it too well.
In 2000, when Luis Figo took the transfer from Barcelona to Real Madrid, the Barca fans had got infuriated. Later on, when Figo came to Camp Nou to play for Madrid against Barcelona, he didn’t get a good response from the home fans.
Ramos is a regular member of the first team of Barcelona in the ongoing season. But, surprisingly, he was not included in the first XI of Madrid against Manchester City in the all important Champions League match. Since then, it has been speculated that everything is not well between Ramos and Jos Mourinho.
However, Jos Mourinho has denied the reports of dispute between him and Ramos. The Real Madrid manager said, “Ramos has no problems whatsoever with the Madrid management. If he was not included included in the team against City, it doesn’t mean that there is some dispute.”
“He is an important member of the team and he will be given starting chance in the upcoming match against Rayo Vallecano.”
