Injury to Sergio Ramos (34 years old) is an unexpected setback for him and for him Real Madrid. After three weeks of conservative treatment, the pain has not stopped. For this reason, the captain decided, advised by the medical team, to operate on the meniscus in his left knee to remove the discomfort and avoid more serious injuries. The intervention was successful, but it will have to be between six and eight weeks off, so much of the decisive phase of the season will be lost.

The operation leaves even more in the air its renewal, the star theme of the season in the offices of the Santiago Bernabeu. They are already months locked in a negotiation that, currently, is at a standstill. The Ramos contract ends June 30, 2021, so you can already sign an agreement with another club for the next year. However, he is still waiting for Madrid to reach the conditions he has requested, since his intention is to end his sports career in white.

The first was sign two more years, and not one as the club usually offers to players over 30. Considering the importance of Sergio in recent successes, his request was accepted. Nevertheless, the problem comes in the economic aspect. With your current contract, you receive 12 million euros net per season. Madrid offers to charge the same, but, due to the economic crisis generated by the coronavirus pandemic, it is forced to make a salary cut to the workforce, for which they would withdraw 10% of that amount. Total, I would be earning 10.8. Ramos, who would be signing his last major contract, has requested a raise, taking into account the subsequent reduction to, at least, reach the 12 million that he currently charges.

On the eve of last New Year’s Eve, during a team trip to Elche to play a League match there, Florentino PĂ©rez He approached the player’s room at the White Expedition hotel to discuss the matter face to face. The ‘Camero’ assured feeling disappointed with the economic proposal, and warned the president that he would begin to “listen to offers.” He even confirmed that he had already been contacted by the Paris Saint Germain, which seems the main candidate to take over their services.

Injury, possible handicap for the captain

It must be taken into account that the white team has historically had good gestures with injured footballers. Pirri The Camacho They were renovated despite being years of low. In recent times, although it has not been in the form of renewal, those who have suffered serious injuries have had the support of the club. Marco Asensio, who was off the pitch for almost a year, or players prone to injuries such as Dani Carvajal The Gareth Bale they have been clearly supported. For this reason, although there will not be an improvement in conditions, it is expected that Madrid will maintain its offer in a clear gesture of confidence after the operation.

There are more doubts about a hypothetical exit. Ramos hopes to receive more attractive offers financially, but this injury could truncate his plans. There is no room for doubts in his professionalism and care of his body, as he has shown throughout all the years in Madrid where he has not been more than a month and a half off in a row. But if that, go under the knife with his age, it can be a handicap when it comes to finding a new destination considering its high claims.

The doctor Ripoll, a sports injury specialist, was optimistic about the Sports Carousel from Chain TO BE. “The information conveyed by the intervention is reassuring. It is not comparable to the case of Ansu fati (also with meniscus problems). For athletes over 30 years of age, who have less running time left, the ideal is to keep most of the meniscus so that it can be rejoined with full guarantee as soon as possible. In a player of his age, it is a much more optimistic diagnosis than in an 18-year-old boy“, he explained.

Fernando Torres, a negative example

Meniscus intervention is very common in professional football. There are many players who every season treat this ailment in the operating rooms. This course, without going any further, Ansu Fati or Coutinho they had to pass the drink. While in most cases it is the best solution, in others it can mean a total change in a player’s career. For example, Fernando Torres was operated in 2010 to be 100% in the world from South Africa. He succeeded, but this dragged him down for the rest of his career and he never regained the physical form shown before the injury.

Too many unknowns regarding the future of Ramos, and time is running out. The situation has worsened in recent weeks with cross information and taunts through social networks, especially from the player’s side. On the part of Madrid, they do not think to increase their offer, and they expect a gesture from the captain that serves as an example to the rest of the squad. The end of the season is getting closer and closer, but the agreement seems more distant than ever.
