LaLiga Rumours: Real Madrid star considering exit due to intense dressing room clash with Florentino Perez
- Real Madrid undoubtedly had a torrid season.
What's the rumour?
A dressing room exchange with Florentino Perez is a major reason for Ramos' decision, which makes his future unsure at the club.
In case you didn't know...
There is no doubt that Real Madrid endured one of the worst seasons in their rich history. They finished third in LaLiga, 19 points behind winners Barcelona. Los Blancos also suffered humiliating exits from the Champions League and Copa Del Rey, ending their season without lifting a major silverware.
Real Madrid was knocked out by Ajax in the Round of 16 of the Champions League. Los Blancos won the first leg 2-1 but they were brutally defeated in their own home as Ajax won the return leg 4-1.
Ramos missed out on the clash after a deliberate yellow card in the first leg, and the shocking result had a huge effect on the team. The Los Blancos captain and club president Florentino Perez reportedly had a heated exchange in the dressing room after the match.
The 33-year-old centre-back has made over 600 appearances for Real Madrid since joining in 2005. Ramos has also racked up 84 goals for Los Blancos, and undoubtedly, he remains one of the legends of the club.
The heart of the matter
According to the report, Sergio Ramos is planning an exit, and the dressing room row with Perez is one of the pivotal reasons for his decision. Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are clubs who are monitoring the situation, and they have even reportedly enquired about the Spanish defender.
Real Madrid's hierarchy is aware of the speculation, but the player and his agent are yet to convey anything to the board. The Spanish giants and Ramos himself have rejected offers in the past but things have changed for Ramos, who is reportedly weighing his future.
Real Madrid had a forgettable season, but it is unlikely the captain of the squad will leave in the summer window.
