Even Sergio Ramos is getting closer to advancing into Saudi Arabia.
Spanish media ‘As’ reported on the 31st (Korean time), “Al Ittihad has emerged as the next destination for Ramos, who has not yet found a team.”
Ramos is considered one of the greatest defenders of all time. From 2005 to 2021, he played 671 matches for Real Madrid alone, winning four Champions League titles and five La Liga titles.
Even as he got older, his skills never rusted. As he played in 45 games as a key defender for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) last season, he completely blew away any regrets about his sluggish 21/22 season.
Accompanying with PSG did not lead. Initially, the possibility of contract extension was raised, but Ramos left PSG this summer and became a free agent.
Weight was placed on his chances of advancing to Saudi Arabia. The possibility increased as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, who had worked together for a long time at Real, left for Saudi Arabia in succession.스포츠토토
Ramos thought differently. Ramos wanted to play in the UEFA Champions League. Because of this, he is said to have rejected all offers from the United States and Saudi Arabia.
Galatasaray was mentioned as a potential next destination. Galatasaray, who are competing in the Champions League this season, wanted to strengthen their defense. The possibility of Ramos’ transfer was high.
In fact, the transfer did not take place. According to this report, Ramos has turned down a 1+1 year contract from Galatasaray, which includes an annual salary of 6 million euros (approximately 8.6 billion won).
With the transfer window closing, the possibility of going to Saudi Arabia has now been opened. The media said, “Al Ittihad started promoting the recruitment of Ramos once again after the negotiations between Ramos and Galatasaray fell into difficulties.”
The problem is the duration of the contract. Al Ittihad offered Ramos a two-year contract. On the other hand, Ramos is having difficulty reaching an agreement as he insists on a three-year contract.
