Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid do not understand each other. Captain and president do not agree and the positions travel along divergent paths. The meeting that Florentino Perez and Ramos held last Saturday ended without any agreement. It was a face to face. The meeting took place in Valdebebas, before the match against Celta. Afterward, the president and defense met in the dressing room tunnel just before the players left the pitch. There they already knew what was on the way in the absence of agreement.
The club offers him a one-year contract with identical amounts to those that Ramos receives during this season and which is above the twelve million euros mentioned and which represent the highest salary of the squad. That amount would have to subtract ten percent of the salary cut available for the entire staff and that is on the way. On the contrary, Ramos asks for two years of contract and that the salary reduction does not appear in the renewal and that it starts on his initiative and not as something required.
There is no new appointment marked on the calendar.
Now one (player) is free to negotiate with whoever he wants and the other (club) to look for alternatives in the market. What does seem clear is that neither one nor the other wants to delay the issue in time. Zinedine Zidane did not want problems that would blow up the good atmosphere in the dressing room and suddenly he found two of them and of great depth.
That tranquility does not seem possible. Tension has taken hold of the moment because of the lack of agreement on the renewals of Lucas Vazquez and Sergio Ramos. The captain has a renewal proposal for a campaign with an amount of money similar to the current one, of course pending the salary cut this season. The captain’s performance is beyond any doubt but the idea that the leaders continue to maintain is to maintain the maximum number of renewals from year to year after a certain age to which different formulas can be applied but for now they do not appear on the horizon.
Lucas Vazquez believes that he deserves more than what is offered, which is very similar to what he currently charges. Look for a three-year contract. You have rejected the proposal and, as with Ramos, you can listen to the offers that may reach you with complete freedom. The Galician has grown in his performance in recent weeks to become essential, turning around a situation that condemned him to leave the club on June 30. He feels strong, as he is showing on the pitch.
None of the cases completely independent have a simple solution. The economy of war imposed by the club for ten months and which has led to no signings made last summer continues and that means as MARCA has learned that the position of the entity will not vary in excess. From the noble zone, they understand it and understand that the players seek offers from other teams, but for the moment they put forward the idea of renewing year after year in the case of Ramos and not increasing the proposal made to Lucas Vázquez.
