Press reports revealed that the Liverpool management is looking to strengthen the team’s ranks during the winter transfer period, in light of the desire of the technical staff led by Jurgen Klopp to support some centers in the team.
The English newspaper “Mirror” said that Liverpool joined to negotiate with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos to sign him during the winter transfer period, especially since Ramos’ future is far from clear, as the veteran center-back contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
The newspaper indicated that Liverpool will find it very difficult to compete with Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Manchester City, who want to include the hard player with interest as well.
In the same context, the Spanish newspaper “AS” said that the difficulty of renewing Sergio Ramos comes due to the economic conditions that Real Madrid is going through in light of the spread of the Corona virus epidemic, as the newspaper indicated that the problem comes in the agreement to reduce the salary that the administration wants by 10% of the value The salary will be 1.2 million euros less than 12 million in the season.
The report added that Sergio Ramos knows that in the event of renewal his salary will be reduced by about 2.5 million euros over two seasons, which he refuses as he is fully aware that the club is planning to conclude big deals such as the signing of Mbappe in the summer, and he can save his salary..
Ramos welcomes the delay in obtaining his salary until the club’s economic crisis is over, whether after a year or two or until the end of his contract, which is what happened with Barcelona’s players who have been postponing nearly 30% of their salaries for years to come.
