Jose Mourinho is using his close contacts in Spain to try and engineer the incredible transfer of legendary Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos to Tottenham, according to reports.

Ramos is in the final year of his contract at Madrid, where he has been since 2005. In that time, he has become a club legend, even scoring 100 goals despite being a defender.

However, his spell with Madrid may be coming to an end. The club may have to release him at the end of his contract, in an effort to reduce their wage bill.

Even though Ramos will be 35 years by that time, there will still be plenty of interest in him. For example, he has been linked with a move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami.

More recently, there were rumours that Neymar wanted him to join Paris Saint-Germain – and that would lead him to commit his own future to the Ligue 1 giants.

Manchester United have also been linked, though they appear to have set their sights elsewhere.

However, reports in Spain have strongly linked Tottenham with a move for Ramos.

The defender’s priority remains to stay with Madrid. Though as Fabrizio Romano explains, ‘anything is possible’ for Ramos in the months ahead.


“We have to say that Sergio Ramos loves Real Madrid. When you think about Sergio Ramos you can’t see Sergio Ramos at another club that is not Real Madrid. That’s why he’s been so respectful, I have to say,” Romano said on the Que Golazo Podcast.

“Because, Real Madrid have been in a complicated economic situation, they can’t sign any players. Instead they have asked players with expiring contracts, like Sergio Ramos and like Luka Modric, let’s wait a bit. We have to understand the situation and then we will make a bid for your contract.”

“So, we need to wait. That’s what Real Madrid say to Sergio Ramos, and when you have these kind of legends of European football, not just Real Madrid, they can also say, I don’t want to wait I’m going to negotiate with another club and take a bigger contract with another club in the Premier League or with PSG and much more.

“Sergio Ramos has been so respectful. He has waited, and he wants to be the captain of the new Bernabeu with Real Madrid. But he needs to have a contract bid [offer], and at the moment, Real Madrid are still waiting.

“He wants to receive a two-year contract, he wants the same money and not to change anything on his contract. So the same contract for the next two years.

“It’s up to Real Madrid, and that’s why everything can happen with Sergio Ramos. It’s up to [president] Florentino Perez.”
