Barca candidate in Ramos approach?

An unnamed candidate for the Barcelona Presidency has approached Sergio Ramos’ representatives to make the defender an offer.

Sport reports the prospective office-holder, whose name they are keeping secret, hopes to exploit any ill-will between the centre-back and Madrid supremo Florentino Perez.

It’s noted that Ramos was unhappy with the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti and discussions over a new contract at Santiago Bernabeu have been slow.

Ramos’ Madrid contract has two seasons to run, although Sport acknowledge that a jump to Camp Nou is ‘practically impossible.’

Sport add the approach has echoes of Luis Figo quitting Barca for Madrid in 2000, when Perez convinced the winger to move on.

A similar situation almost arose in 2003 when Jaume Llaurado, running for the Barca position, suggested he had an agreement with Madrid captain Iker Casillas.
