REAL MADRID | SERGIO RAMOS TURNS DOWN A "MASSIVE" MONACO OFFER ?

Spanish Football commentator Alfredo Duro revealed in a leading late night TV Football Show that French Club AS Monaco had approached Real Madrid & Spanish International defender Sergio Ramos with an "outrageous offer".

Duro gave figures. The Monaco owner Dimitri Rybolovlev offered Ramos a 5 year contract for a total of 75M€, that is,  a salary ( net ) of 15M€ per season. This figure would have put Ramos in the highest paid World Football bracket & definitely the highest paid for any defender. 

The good news for Real Madrid fans & followers is that Sergio Ramos has turned down the offer. According to the Spanish Football commentator, Ramos is obsessed with the idea of winning the 10th Champions League title for Real Madrid. The defender is missing this trophy from his collection & only thinks about winning it with Real Madrid. This objective has "brushed" aside the astronomical offer from Monaco. Monaco has not formally made an offer to Real Madrid, it has no need now that they know from Ramos that he has no intention of moving.

However, from my point of view, if the offer is indeed true, it sets a benchmark that Real Madrid will need to keep in mind as the player may have arguments to insist for a renegotiation of current contract at the Club. This also leads the "conspiracy thinkers" to doubt the Monaco offer & suggest that the rumour is part of a players "strategy" to attempt to improve his economic conditions. In Football all options are possible.
