There is no doubt that Arsenal are in desperate need of an experienced reliable centre-back (even Arsene Wenger has finally admitted it!) and you can’t get a more experienced one than the Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, who in his ten years at the club has made won every possible trophy including the World Cup.
There have been many rumours over the years that Ramos would be moving to the Premier League, but now the 28 year-old has given his best hint ever that he would be keen on finally moving away from La Liga.
“The only thing I will say is that with every passing day I prefer the English Premier League,” Ramos told AS after Real lost to Atletico in the Copa Del Rey.
“What am I talking about? Obviously not the ball-boys…the style of play, the refereeing.”
“People enjoy watching that competition. When you lose it’s easy to focus on the refereeing decisions.”
Maybe its about time Ramos had a new challenge in his life. Let’s face it must be boring only having two or three games a year that are stressful. In the Premiership EVERY game is losable no matter who you are playing (especially if you are an Arsenal player!), and if he fancies a change, why not put in a cheeky little bid?
Ramos still has two years left on his contract but as he’s approaching his 29th birthday he shouldn’t be too expensive. Shall we encourage Wenger to make him an offer?
