Sergio Ramos definitely will leave Real Madrid when his contract ends in June as there’s ‘no way back’ for him at Los Blancos.
The 34-year-old has appeared over 650 times and scored 100 goals during his epic 16-year stint at the club, winning a host of honours.
However, despite his service, the veteran is struggling to agree on a new contract at Bernabeu and will soon become a free agent.
Manchester United have been linked with a summer swoop for Ramos with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to bolster his defence.
They face competition from French giants PSG, who view the experienced ace as the perfect man to help them conquer their dream of Champions League success.
Now it seems both could be set for a tug-of-war with Spanish journalist Josep Pedrerol claiming the star is going to exit the Bernabeu.
Pedrerol told El Chiringuito: “Sergio Ramos is leaving Real Madrid. I don’t think there’s any possibility of him staying. There’s no way back.
“Real Madrid believe it’s a fact and believe that Ramos deserves to sign for whatever team he wants to earn one last big contract before finishing his career.
“In these circumstances, Real Madrid won’t offer him more money.”
Madrid were believed to have offered him an extension on reduced terms, reported to be with a 10 percent pay cut.
After snubbing that, Ramos, currently sidelined until April with a knee injury, is then said to have rejected a second offer of a 12-month deal on the same salary he is currently on.
Pedrerol added he believes the centre-half is making a huge mistake by turning down Madrid.
He said: “It’s a shame and I think Ramos is making a mistake.
“Make an effort. Take 10 percent less and sign for two years and then, if the financial situation improves, this can improve too.”
