Spain defender, Sergio Ramos has come out to say that he wanted an extension on his Real Madrid contract. He, however, revealed that this was not possible because the club said he ran out of time while making his decision.
According to him, he really wanted to remain a Madrid player, but his mind was set on a two-year contract for his peace of mind.
Ramos added that his exit was always coming, and he knows in his heart that he gave his soul for the club.
His words, “The first thing I want to say is that I never wanted to leave. I wanted to stay here. The club offered me the possibility of extending my contract, but because of Covid it was put on the back burner.”
“The club made me a one-year offer with a salary reduction. I have to say that there was no economic problem. I wanted two years and peace of mind for me and my family.”
“During the last talks, I accepted the one-year offer, but I was informed that it was no longer possible, that it had an expiration date and that I had not heard about it.”
“The conditions have changed several times, on their part and on ours.”
“It got to a point where we had to make a decision but they never told me that the offer had an expiry date. It’s understandable but it surprised me, that the offer had expired.”
“I’m one of those people who likes to be defined by others,”
“If I had to use one word it would be purity. I have given my soul for this club. That’s how I want to be remembered, as a person of integrity.”
