Sergio Ramos wants Real Madrid to allow him to accept 'huge offer' from China

Sergio Ramos wants to leave Real Madrid this summer

Sergio Ramos' time at Real Madrid may be coming to an end this summer.

The Spaniard joined Los Blancos back in 2005 and has gone on to become one of the world's most fearsome defenders.

He's won the Champions league four times with the club and has scored 84 goals in his 606 appearances in all competitions - a ridiculous record for a centre-back.

But the 33-year-old has shown signs of decline throughout the 2018/19 season and it is no coincidence that he is now looking for a move to the Chinese Super League.

Spanish publication AS have followed up on a report from La Sexta which states that Ramos has informed the Real Madrid hierarchy of a huge offer received from the Far East.

He is now demanding that the club let him accept and allow him to leave on a free transfer.

The ball is now well and truly in Florentino Perez's court, with Ramos already holding a meeting with the club president alongside his representatives.

Real already have a new centre-back arriving this summer in the form of Porto's Eder Militao and still have Nacho Fernandez as a capable partner for Raphael Varane.

And according to reports from Italy, Los Blancos have bid €90m for Napoli's Kalidou Kouliably, which was rejected by the Serie A side.

Given Real's financial resources, you can see them upping that bid to adequately replace a player of Ramos' ilk.

It's beginning to look more and more likely that Zinedine Zidane's side will distinctively different come the start of next season.

The likes of Gareth Bale, Isco, Jesus Vallejo and Mariano Diaz are all likely to leave, while Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Paul Pogba are just some of the high-profile names that could arrive.

And if Ramos is granted permission to start a new adventure over in Asia, it will feel like the end of an era at the club - especially after Cristiano Ronaldo's exit last summer.
