Real’s stand-in skipper wants to be paid more by los Blancos, but the Spaniards do not agree with their centre back.
Manchester City have been put on alert after it emerged that Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos could leave the Santiago Bernabeu over a dispute about money with the Spanish giants, according to reports in the Sun.
The experienced Spain international has been with los Blancos for the past eight seasons now, after originally arriving in the Spanish capital from fellow Liga outfit Sevilla in the summer of 2005 for a whopping 27 million euros.
And in the intervening eight-year period, Ramos has gone on to establish himself as one of the most impressive centre backs currently plying their trade on both the Continent and on the international stage too.
For Madrid, Ramos has managed to find the back of the net on an impressive 41 occasions in total in his 359 appearances in all competitions for the club, including 32 strikes in 261 league outings.
However, the 27-year-old recently asked the Spaniards for a pay rise on his current contract, which runs until June 30 2017, and so far the club have yet to agree to the central defender’s demands, opening the door to a possible departure from the White House at some point, either at the turn of the year, or more likely come the end of this season.
