Chelsea free to secure world class signing after defender opens up about leaving Madrid!
Sergio Ramos has admitted he does not know where his next club will be, amid speculation that Chelsea are interested.
Ramos leaves behind an incredible legacy in Madrid, the 35-year-old having won five La Liga titles, two Copas del Rey, four Supercopas de Espana, four Champions Leagues, three UEFA Super Cups and four Club World Cups.
Chelsea are reportedly ready to try and bring him to the Premier League, to add a bit more quality to that back-line and to help Ageing Brazilian defender Thiago Silva out over the course of the season.
Now, Ramos has admitted that he does not know his next destination, and has said that he intended to accept Real Madrid’s offer of a one-year extension but was told that he had run out of time to accept it
Speaking at a press conference, Ramos said: “ The first thing I want to say is that I never wanted to leave. I wanted to stay here. The club offered me the possibility of extending my contract, but because of covid it was put on the back burner.
“Then club made me a one-year offer with a salary reduction. I have to say that there was no economic problem. I wanted two years and peace of mind for me and my family.
“During the last talks, I accepted the one-year offer, but I was informed that it was no longer possible, that it had an expiration date and that I had not heard about it.”
He added on the specifics of the contract: The conditions have changed several times, on their part and on ours.
“It got to a point where we had to make a decision but they never told me that the offer had an expiry date. It’s understandable but it surprised me, that the offer had expired.”
Would Chelsea fans welcome the player?
