The Spanish centre-back remains an influential figure on and off the pitch. According to recent reports, Ramos told Madrid to sign these two players.
Sergio Ramos over the years has been an important player for Madrid. The Los Blancos captain is the oldest and club’s respected figure. For years he has been the savior for Madrid. He scored the winning goal in Champions League final 4 years ago. Ramos scored many crucial goals for the Los Blancos throughout his entire career. However now it seems Madrid will be listening to the World Cup winner on whom to sign. The Spaniard told Madrid to sign these two players.
According to Marca, Club President Florentino Perez has reportedly sought out Ramos for advice on potential transfer targets. As per the report, the 32-year-old wants 17-year-old Santos forward Rodrygo and River Plates Exequiel Palacios in Madrid shirt. Rodrygo is already on Real’s radar, but it is thought Santos want to keep the hot prospect until at least the end of the season.
The Brazilian can play on either wing or as a striker. Rodrygo has scored seven goals in 37 appearances this season. Palacios meanwhile is a 20-year-old midfield player, who has caught the eye after being capped twice by his national side Argentina. According to recent reports, Palacios could be Madrid’s first signing in the winter transfer window. Madrid have a reported transfer kitty of 200 million euros to splash but want to spend on new and rising stars.
Ramos could even have reason to be concerned, given that the club are said to be in the hunt for a new centre-back. Madrid are keen to lure Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso. If Madrid signs him then he might replace or play second fiddle to Ramos.
Madrid may have the money now, but are confused about where to spend. The Madrid squad lacks depth and that has been the reason for their downfall this season. However, at this moment Madrid should not listen to Ramos’s advice and instead should sign quality and world Class players. The Los Blancos and Ramos need quality and match-winning players.
