And when Sergio Ramos awake, the Real Madrid it was no longer there. The first half of the year 2021 has been difficult and completely unexpected for the former Madrid captain. The Andalusian thought that, as in the short story of Augusto Monterroso, You will meet The dinosaur, Madrid, once its time for reflection has passed, no matter how long it may be. What Ramos did not expect was that Date of Expiry In the renewal offer not a consummate full stop after months of hints, mistakes, leaks and bad luck. This is the history of a breakup.

After the controversy surrounding its last renovation, Ramos and Madrid came to the current negotiation with highly studied profiles. On the one hand, the China offer that the Andalusian had put on the table in 2019 to pressure the board had not liked the club, despite the fact that the center-back ended up signing and ensuring that will play for free here. On the other side, the situation of the defense of the Whites at the beginning of the season placed the Andalusian in a force position. Early he was far from his prime and Militao It did not meet expectations, so the future of the center of defense continued to depend on Ramos. The one of Beds I bet strong, but time has given and taken away reasons.

Christmas rejection and injury

According to this newspaper, before Christmas the footballer assured the club that if it was not possible to renew for two years, he would leave. It was a meeting, a talk, a conversation (call it what you want) face to face between Florentino and Ramos, the main and almost unique players in this game. Father and son, as both are always called. They have loved each other, they love each other and they will love each other, but this time they have not reached port. They will meet again, for sure.

Ramos rejected that first offer of a year with a salary reduction, the one that has been made to all those over 30 on the workforce, and the professional relationship died there. There were no more movements by Madrid. Ramos, whose environment began to tempt the managers of PSG y CityHe expected a reaction from the club that never arrived and was injured. As if that were not enough, the central force to add internationalities with Spain against Greece and Kosovo just before the Champions League quarter-final against him Liverpool and he relapsed from his knee problems, disappointing the noble zone of the Bernabu and putting the first foot out of the stadium. His absence broke all the schemes and he agreed with the idea of ​​the future project of the Chamartn group: Militao exploded, Nacho performed at the highest level, the signing of David Alaba and the club withdrew a renewal offer that the captain, over the horn, ended up accepting

Board discussion

A week ago they told me it had expired. I was surprised, Ramos himself recognized in yesterday’s press conference, in which Florentino was not by his side, something that the central defender would have liked. The Andalusian clarified, from his point of view, some of the doubts of the last months: I have never wanted to leave Madrid, money was never a problem, It was a matter of years of contract, I think I have earned it, I do not want confrontations … And a resounding return sooner or later.

In the Madrid directive there has been some debate regarding the decision. Among the strongest men in Florentino there were votes for and against the renewal, which has caused certain pressures over the past few weeks. Some voices considered that losing Ramos after the departure of Zidane and with Cristiano still in the mind of the fans it was not the best idea, even more so when in a few months to play the premiere of the new Bernabu.

Benzema, Modric and maybe Marcelo they will be the greatest icons of that historical moment that Florentino has been waiting for years. It is his great work and he sees himself with the strength to assume it without Cristiano, without Zidane and now without Ramos, the three great exponents of his second term. On the other side of the president’s table, others trusted, and trust, in the necessary change of scenery that the dressing room needs and in the young promises project, with Militao now leading the defense. The same project for the future that dynamites part of the Zizou. In addition, the negotiations for the salary reduction for this course have been one of the main points of friction. Some believed that Ramos, who has seen his friends renew Modric and Lucas Vzquez, has not played in favor of the club in that management.
