Reports: Why Ramos Wants To Quit Real Madrid

Following a poor 2018/19 season, Real Madrid captain and current longest-serving player Sergio Ramos is believed to have handed in a transfer request, and his reason for doing so has now reportedly been revealed.

The Spanish stalwart is said to want to leave the Spanish giants, the club he joined from Sevilla in 2005.

Ramos' relationship with president Florentino Perez has reportedly soured this season, especially after the chief blamed him for Real's UEFA Champions League exit.

In the final minutes of their 2-1 away win over Ajax Amsterdam in the first leg of their round of 16 tie, the 33-year-old picked up a yellow card that would rule him out of the return fixture.

After that game in February, Ramos admitted to getting booked intentionally, which resulted in punishment from UEFA, while insult was added to injury as Real lost 4-1 in the second leg to be knocked out of the competition.

The defender bore the brunt of the backlash from Los Blancos' exit from the tournament, with Perez reportedly accusing him of being the main reason for the team's failure to progress further.

According to El Partidazo, Ramos is determined to leave the club in this window as a result, with a move to China said to be on the cards.

However, Perez is seemingly unwilling to let the defender leave, revealing in a recent interview with Onda Cero what he told Ramos.

"They (Ramos and his agent) came to see me in my office and told me they had a very good offer from China but the league rules over there wouldn't permit them to pay the transfer fee," he explained.

"What was I going to tell him? We said this couldn't happen but we'd speak to the club to satisfy him but that Real Madrid could not afford to let its captain leave for free as that would set a terrible precedent for other players."

Ramos has represented Real on 606 occasions since his debut for the club, winning 20 trophies along the way, including four Champions League titles.
