Mystery Premier League club fail in big-money Sergio Ramos bid

The Real Madrid defender has over two years left on his current contract but an unnamed English side approached his agent with a mammoth offer
An unnamed Premier League club recently failed with a big-money move for Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, according to the player's agent.

Ramos has two and a half years left on his current contract at the Santiago Bernabeu and, as yet, there have been no talks over a renewel.

And Rene Ramos, the centre-back's brother and representative, says that he rejected an approach from England in recent months.

"Out of respect to the club I will only say that they are English," he told Marca.

"The offers are enormous in economical terms, but we are at the club we want to be at. The best in the world.

"So, more than once, I had to say “thanks very much for your interest, but no”. I reiterate, right now, leaving Real Madrid is a non-starter."

The Blancos sit level on points with Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga, behind on head to head record but with a game in hand ahead of Sunday's clash with Levante.
