Sergio Ramos will sign a new deal with Real Madrid on Monday. The Real Madrid captain has been at loggerheads with the Spanish giants over a new contract with Manchester United keen to bring the player at Old Trafford.
Louis Van Gaal was on stand-by and although Ramos loves Madrid, he made up his mind that he was ready to move to Old Trafford. That, it seemed, was that. But a twist of fate came as Perez was booed by hundreds of fans at the event to announce the departure of club captain and icon Casillas. Once was careless, but twice would have been unforgivable.
So a rethink followed and out in China amid Madrid’s pre-season tour, talks resumed. Both club and player agreed in the end that a future together was the best solution and Perez promised the 29-year-old a lucrative new deal.
That contract will now be announced and signed officially on Monday at a high-profile event at the Santiago Bernabeu, with Ramos set to commit himself for the rest of his career to the club he joined in 2005 from Vilarreal. He will earn around €10m after tax and will captain the team on a full-time basis now that Iker has left for Porto.
