No interest from Liverpool in buying Sergio Ramos

Published

on

The fact that Jurgen Klopp fielded two midfielders at the heart of the Reds’ defence in Monday night’s loss at Southampton may have hammered home the Premier League champions’ desperate need to sign a new centre-half, but the captain of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos will not be rocking up at Anfield any time soon.

The 34-year-old’s age, wage demands and previous, to put it diplomatically, mean he will not even be considered as a possible solution to Liverpool’s defensive dilemma.

The Reds made an exception for Thiago Alcantara last summer, in order to add something different to their midfield, but they have no interest in a player who does not fit their profile for a new signing at all and particularly one that remains a hated figure among supporters for the role he played in the game-ending injury suffered by Mohamed Salah in the 2018 Champions League final.

However, while Ramos certainly is not bound for Liverpool, that does not mean that he will not end up leaving Real when his contract expires at the end of the season. Firstly, he has no end of genuine suitors, with Paris Saint-Germain leading the way as long-time admirers of the most prolific defender in Liga history.

Secondly, and far more importantly, Madrid are open to letting him go.

Speaking in 2016, after he was called up to the England squad by Allardyce, he said: ‘I turned down an approach from Jamaica in March and for this to happen so quickly, I’m buzzing. I just want to keep my feet on the floor.

‘In my first season in the Premier League, even though I had good stats, the England manager would have had to take a risk on me.

‘It looks like the gaffer now believes that I’ve done enough to be in there, so hopefully, I can prove him right.’

The forward was then called up by Southgate in 2017 but he was forced to withdraw from the squad due to injury.
