Sergio Ramos’ 2020 comments over Real Madrid exit tell all amid Liverpool link

Past comments from Sergio Ramos suggest he would snub a move to Liverpool.

The Real Madrid talisman has helped his club secure five La Liga titles and four Champions League triumphs since joining from Sevilla in 2005, having made 666 total appearances.

The 34-year-old may have been linked with Manchester United in the past, but it is the recent injury woes of Jurgen Klopp that have led to further Premier League rumours.

However, the recent words of Ramos suggest that he is not interested in finding one last challenge before his playing career comes to an end.

He said after they secured another league title after beating Villarreal 2-1 back in July: ”I’ll be here as many years as the President wants me to be here for.

“It doesn't depend on me. I’m delighted here and I want to end my career. I hope I can retire here.”

That came before El Chiringuito stated that Liverpool were interested in Ramos as he approaches the end of his current contract at the Bernabeu, which is likely to be extended.

Despite the continued absence of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Klopp earlier this week that the club do not have any major plans for the January transfer window.

He said: ”In good times everyone thinks our owners are really generous – 'My God, big signings, whatever' – and in bad times everyone thinks they are really tight – maybe because they are from a different country – but they are not, they are absolutely concerned about the club and success of the club.

"And that is an understanding how we have it.

“They see exactly the same things I see about necessity of players and stuff – it's not that I say 'By the way a centre-half would be really nice' and they say 'Wow, a centre-half. Really? Why?'.

"It is all clear, all on the table, we work on that. It is the situation and on top of that we have January, not the easiest transfer window, having not the money exactly like we want.

"It is a window where other clubs say 'No, we have enough (money) to survive' so we don't do anything on our targets.

"It is nothing to do with worrying (about whether it affects their chances of defending their title) or not. These are the facts.

"My job is to deal with the circumstances which I always do.

“If the world would be in a completely normal place, we would try everything to do the right stuff now but the world is not in a normal place so I don't know why we constantly try to treat the football like it is independent of other issues around."
