SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: REAL MADRID - SERGIO RAMOS FIX DEAL UNTIL 2020

REAL MADRID - SERGIO RAMOS FIX DEAL UNTIL 2020

News coming out of Spanish Sports paper "Marca" advances that Real Madrid & Sergio Ramos have ironed out their differences & look like sealing an agreement that renews the defenders contract until 2020.

Was there any doubt? I posted here weeks back that the supposedly Manchester United offer would be used as leverage power in the negotiations. Ramos wanted 10M€ per season while Real Madrid only offered 7M€. The leaked - & apparent - 11 M€ per season from Man United offer was all that Ramos & his inner circle needed to drive home their desires. Add media support from "old friends" & Mr. Ramos was certainly in the process.

REAL MADRID until 2020

Real Madrid President Perez flew to China days back to meet up with squad & in the process offer a counter-offer that apparently makes Sergio Ramos happy: 9M€ per season & contract extention until 2020. Although nothing is official it is speculated that "deal" will be shut & sealed in Madrid next week after Real Madrid return from Asia. 

Manchester United fans may well be angry. The English Club was used as a betting chip & locals may well see Ramos as a "traitor". If so, it would be naive & childish as this sort of thing happens everyday in Football. Plus I would be surprised if Man United Directives did not smell beforehand the Spanish players intentions. Manchester United will outwardly cry "mutiny" but that's to keep the local fan base on their side.

Football, a marvellous game, however treacherous for the blind & naive.
