Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos wants to leave and has asked his club to listen to offers for him, according to the Spanish media.
Ramos, a reported target of Manchester United, has not been offered a contract extension to remain at Real beyond June 2017 when his current deal runs out.
According to Thursday’s reports in the Spanish press, Ramos had a meeting on Wednesday with Real general director Jose Angel Sanchez at the club’s training ground in Valdebebas.
It was at that meeting, the reports say, that Ramos announced his wish to leave the club this summer.
The 29-year-old Spain international joined Real in the summer of 2005 from Sevilla on a €27m transfer fee.
His stoppage time equaliser in the 2014 Champions League final in Lisbon allowed Real to take the match against Atletico Madrid into extra-time, and his team went on to capture record 10th European Cup.According to Spanish sports newspaper AS, Ramos earns six million euros net per season when combining his wages and endorsements.
The publication claims Manchester United are willing to offer the Spaniard 12million euros net per season and that Ramos is upset that Real have kept silent when Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Majo recently claimed he had been offered the opportunity to sign the player to boost his election campaign.
