The fact that Jurgen Klopp lined up two midfielders at the heart of the Reds’ defense in Monday night’s loss at Southampton may have knocked home the desperate need of the Premier League champions to sign a new midfielder. But the Real Madrid captain won’t be rocking out at Anfield any time soon.
The 34-year-old’s age, salary and previous demands, diplomatically speaking, mean he won’t even be considered as a possible solution to Liverpool’s defensive dilemma.
The Reds made an exception for Thiago Alcántara last summer, in order to add something different to their midfield, but they have no interest in a player who doesn’t fit their profile for a new signing and in particular one who remains a figure. hated among fans for the role he played in the injury that ended Mohamed Salah’s match in the 2018 Champions League final.
However, while Ramos is certainly not heading to Liverpool, that doesn’t mean he won’t end up leaving Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the season. First of all, he has a myriad of genuine suitors, with Paris Saint-Germain leading the way as longtime fans of the most prolific defender in La Liga history.
Second, and much more important, Madrid is open to letting him go.
