Real Madrid will not be busy with the events on the winter football market, but there is always work for big clubs. Madrid is slowly completing the summer transfer of David Alaba, which will come without compensation, and they are negotiating new contracts for two irreplaceable veterans, Luka Modrić and Sergio Ramos.
While it is expected that it will be easier to reach an agreement with the Croat, negotiations with the captain are not so easy. Ramos' contract expires next summer and many clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham, Manchester City or Juventus would like to see him in their team.
Real wants to keep him but on their own terms. These conditions are A one-year contract with the same salary or a two-year contract with a reduced salary. Despite the status of a legend he has in Madrid, Real does not want to offer Ramos the conditions he expected.
And that is a three-year contract with the same salary. Ramos is 35 years old and Real believes that he is no longer in a situation to choose.
The club does not want to offer long-term and high contracts to players who are at the end of their careers.
After all, Real did not hesitate to show the exit door to legends like Raul and Casillas. And as we said above, Real Madrid will not be busy with the events on the winter football market, but there is always work for big clubs Ramos' brother, who represents him as an agent and who promoted messages on social networks criticizing Real for his attitude towards the captain, added fuel to the fire.
Ramos currently earns 12,000,000 euros per season at Real, which is a huge amount of money considering his age. For example, in the Italian league, only Ronaldo earns more. Bayern did not want to offer that salary to Alaba, which is why the Austrian will leave as a free agent.
At the same time, the Spanish and German media claim that Real offered Alaba around 10,000,000 euros a year, that they are also interested in Villarreal's stopper Pau Torres, so Ramos is in a situation where he cannot set any conditions.
He can accept what is offered to him and stay or refuse and leave ... Surely the fans will not like this approach of Real Madrid. Most consider Ramos a legend and believe the club should agree with Ramos and accept his terms.
In modern football, a player like Ramos can play for another 2 or 3 seasons at a higher level if there are no injuries, so Real should think carefully about what they will do.
