Chelsea boss José Mourinho is hoping to reunite with his former Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos in the summer. According to the Daily Express, Chelsea have contacted Ramos’ agent about the transfer.
Sergio Ramos is 28-years-old and has a contract that runs till the end of the 2016/17 campaign but it is understood he is considering his options. With a mega contract at Santiago Bernabeu, Arsenal and Manchester United have both been looking at Ramos but it seems Chelsea aim to swoop quickest if the Spaniard is unsettled at Los Blancos.
Real Madrid vice-captian, Sergio Ramos began his career with Sevilla’s youth academy and graduated to the B side for the 2003/04 campaign where he featured in 26 league matches. After 39 games and 2 goals for the Sevilla first team, the central-defender was purchased for €27m by Real Madrid in the summer of 2005. At the time, Ramos became the most expensive Spanish teenager in history.
The number 4 has now played 303 La Liga fixtures for Real Madrid, scoring 38 times with 53 goals in 428 matches in all competitions. Ramos’ trophy cabinet at Madrid contains a UEFA Champions League, a UEFA Super Cup, 2 Copa del Reys, a FIFA World Club Cup, 2 Supercopa de Espanas and 3 La Liga titles.
With the 124 capped Spanish international fancying a change, do you think Chelsea will win the race to his signature? Where should he move to if he does want to give it a go in the Premier League?
