Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos says he is relaxed as rumours continue to link him with a move away from the La Liga giants.
Central defender Ramos has been at the Bernabeu for ten years after joining from boyhood club Sevilla but he is rumoured to be frustrated at the club’s failure to offer him a new contract.
The 29-year-old Spanish international has two years remaining on his contract with Los Blancos but he is apparently expecting President Florentino Perez to offer him a new deal.
I’m always relaxed.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Ramos this summer, the Old Trafford side seemingly keen to take advantage of Madrid’s desire to bring goalkeeper David de Gea back to Spain from Manchester.
Reports in the Spanish media suggest Louis van Gaal is willing to offer €30 million plus de Gea in a bid to bring Ramos to the Premier League.
Van Gaal is 6.00 to win the Premier League with Manchester United next season.
Ramos has made little comment on his future but he was approached by reporters in the Spanish capital as he left the office of his lawyer and, when asked if he was relaxed about rumours linking him with a move away from Real Madrid, he responded “I’m always relaxed.”
Real Madrid have been linked with a move for de Gea since the season ended, with new Bernabeu boss Rafael Benitez apparently keen to move veteran stopper Iker Casillas out of the club before the new season begins.
Real, are 2.62 to win La Liga next season, with reigning champions Barcelona 1.72 to defend their crown.
