FC Barcelona’s presidential candidate Jordi Majo claimed the Real Madrid defender was offered to him, but the Sergio Ramos’ agent insists he will never play for the Catalan giants.
FC Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Majo had shockingly claimed that the Real Madrid centre-back was offered to him over a month ago as a potential signing if he wins the upcoming election, stating: “Sergio Ramos has been offered to me as an electoral trump card.”
Majo went onto add that there was no direct contact made between him and the player or his agent.
a We did not have contact with Rene, but with an intermediary who made us the proposal,a he said. a For what we know, we feel it is an issue of possible mutual interest between them and a candidate. I do not know anything else.a
However, the agent of the Real Madrid star, who is also his brother, has been quick to come out in the media and rubbish those claims.
“Sergio Ramos will never play for Barca,” said Rene Ramos.
Meanwhile, Josep Maria Bartomeu, who is running for re-election as president at Camp Nou and is the favorite alongside Joan Laporta in the presidential election due early in July, was also asked about Majo’s claims.”Majo has been offered to Sergio Ramos? They have never offered anything to us,” he replied.
Well, silly season becomes even sillier if you mix politics with it. Looks like that is the case with the links of the Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid to FC Barcelona. This one, certainly will not happen.
