According to Spanish outlet AS, Liverpool are interested in signing Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos after the centre-back was involved in a bust-up with club president Florentino Perez.
Well, the Spanish international was involved in a heated exchange with Perez after Los Blancos crashed out of the Champions League to Ajax at the quarter-final stage.
His teammates allegedly felt the bad blood between the two would slowly go away, but the pair are still at odds with each other.
As a result, Liverpool are interested in the 33-year-old along with Manchester United and Juventus, whilst he also has interest from China.
Luis Suarez certainly had no qualms about celebrating against his former employers in the video below…
Ramos has an astronomical €800m release clause in his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, and also had two years left on that deal.
Ramos is one of the most decorated players in world football, and that’s no accident.
He’s one of those players that you hate, but would love if he was on your side.
Liverpool fans witnessed first hand in Kiev just how far he’ll go to ensure his side wins, doing anything he can to gain a slight advantage.
That incident with Mohamed Salah, which forced the Egyptian out of the Champions League final early, made Ramos a hated figure amongst the Reds fanbase; they even started a petition against the Spaniard, so it’s safe to say they don’t like him too much.
However, it is that mentality that would actually benefit Liverpool if the Seville-born defender arrived at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, as good as they are, are lacking natural winners – barely any of the current side bar Fabinho and James Milner have won a league title whilst being heavily involved in doing so.
It’s going to be one of the toughest jobs of Klopp’s career to wrestle the title from this all-conquering Manchester City team, and Ramos would provide him with the priceless mentality of a serial winner to help Liverpool gain a new edge.
