Could América tempt Sergio Ramos to the Liga MX?
According to various reports, Las Águilas have already made a formal offer for the veteran central defender.
The transfer rumors continue and this weekend there was another bombshell involving América, who are keen to whip up excitement among both the fans and the team. Just like when Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gómez and Arturo Vidal were linked in recent months, the Águilas are at the centre of a new speculation - including one of the most decorated players in football history.
Faced with the imminent departure of Néstor Araujo to AEK Atenas (where he will be united with fellow Mexicans Orbelin Pineda and Rodolfo Pizarro), the club’s board has started looking for a replacement and one name has already been mentioned that, if it comes to fruition, would be without any doubt the biggest transfer of the summer.
According to market specialist, Fernando Esquivel, América hope to lure Sergio Ramos, to the Liga MX. The 37-year-old is currently without a club after completing the final year of his contract at PSG. His extensive career and track record would position him, without a shadow of a doubt, as one of the most outstanding additions in the history of the Liga MX.
In a tweet, Esquivel explained, “Negotiations initiated between Club América and Sergio Ramos with the view to sign him as a free agent. It is known that there is a FORMAL OFFER - one year with an option for a further year. The salary offered is an HISTORICAL sum for Mexico (+7 million dollars net per year) Player’s agent and inner circle asked for time to decide.”
The former Real Madrid captain is also on the agenda of a number of Saudi Arabian clubs, as well as by others from Major League Soccer. Ramos will consider all the offers he receives and opt for the one that best suits him. As a free agent, he would not be constricted by transfer market deadlines.
