The news comes as a blow for Madrid given that they’re entering the crucial, business-end of the season, with four games left in La Liga. They play Sevilla, Ramos’ old club, at Valdebebas tomorrow evening, an absolutely pivotal game in the title race. Madrid currently sit second in the table, two points behind Atletico Madrid and level on points with Barcelona. Sevilla are fourth, four points behind them.
The news also comes as a blow for Ramos himself. His contract is up this summer, and Madrid look unlikely to give him the terms he wants. Ramos wants a multi-year extension, while Madrid only want to give him a single year inclusive of a pay cut.
