Sergio Ramos tells Real Madrid: Let me go to China

Sergio Ramos has asked Real Madrid to allow him to leave on a free to move to the Chinese Super League, say multiple reports in Spain.

Diario AS follows up on a report from Spanish TV station La Sexta that claims the 33-year-old has informed Los Blancos of a ‘very attractive economic offer’ from the Far East.

It says the Madrid captain held a meeting with Madrid president Florentino Perez alongside his brother Rene and his representative Julio Senn.

The report details the ‘tense relationship’ between Ramos and Perez, following a high-profile fallout following the club’s Champions League exit in March.

Previous reports in the same outlet have claimed the central defender has interest from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain while he is now open to an exit from the Spanish capital.

Ramos has continually told both clubs that he had no interest in a move but was said to have had a change of heart and believes a change of club would benefit both him personally and Madrid.

The Spain international made 41 starts for the club this season but was among a number of underperforming players as Madrid endured a tough campaign.

The Spain captain has scored 84 goals for Madrid in 606 appearances across 14 years following a move from Sevilla and has won 163 caps for his nation.

Ramos has won 20 trophies at the club, including three La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.
