Report: Superstar wanted by Manchester City has left his club's board furious, very likely to leave
Manchester City reported target Sergio Ramos has apparently had a big fallout with the Real Madrid board.
The Citizens are apparently looking at the Real Madrid and Spain defender as a potential summer target.
Ramos could leave the Bernabeu this year as his contract expires on June 30, with no agreement currently in sight.
According to ESPN, City boss Pep Guardiola will offer the 35-year-old a contract should he not renew.
City would reportedly offer him a two-year deal at the Etihad Stadium with the option of a third year.
90min have reported that Real asked every player in their squad to agree to a 10 percent pay cut this summer.
Finances are tight at the Bernabeu in wake of the global health crisis and its impact on the football industry.
According to Spanish outlet Onda Cero, Ramos refused to take a paycut.
He apparently also attempted to get the dressing room to refuse too.
Ramos reportedly argued the money would be used to fund Kylian Mbappe’s signing rather than help the club stay afloat.
And Real chiefs are purportedly furious with Ramos.
According to AS, “the end is nigh” for his time at the Bernabeu.
Bringing a dream CV to Manchester City
Ramos has one of the best CVs in modern-day football.
He has clocked up 671 competitive appearances for Real Madrid and 180 caps for Spain.
Ramos’ silverware haul is incredible, having lifted the 2010 World Cup and two European Championships with Spain.
For Real, he has won four Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles, plus a host of other trophies.
Ramos is in the twilight of his career, but he still has plenty to offer at the highest level.
City have enjoyed a great season, winning the Premier League and another League Cup.
However, they sadly fell short in pursuit of the Champions League.
Ramos joining City would be great both on the pitch and in the dressing room, given his experience and wisdom.
