Barcelona Presidential Candidate Claims Sergio Ramos Offered To Barca

Sergio RamosBlockbuster allegations from Spain as one of the candidates in the upcoming Barcelona presidential elections claims that Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos was offered to Barcelona as a “trump card”.

Jordi Majo was quoted in Spanish newspaper Sport as saying they were given the opportunity to sign the 29-year-old.

“A while ago we were offered him, a month-and-a-half ago roughly,” said Majo. “I don’t know if anyone else was, but we are not going to play that game; we will not be a reason for him and his brother to increase their pay at Real Madrid.

“If another candidate has been offered him and accepted, that’s their problem, but we totally ruled it out.

“We have not had contact with Rene (Ramos’ agent). We believe it’s a case of mutual interest, between them and another candidate (to be Barça president). It is what it is.”

Ramos, who has made more than 400 appearances for Real since signing in 2005, is reportedly embroiled in a pay dispute with the club which could see him seek a move away from the club this summer.

The player’s agent René Ramos was not happy with these allegations, emphatically denying such an idea existed. René suspects that Majó, as a pre-candidate for the top spot at Barça, was desperately looking for his moment in the spotlight. According to the agent,

“Sergio Ramos will never play for Barça”.
