'Ramos will never join Barcelona'

Camp Nou presidential candidate Jordi Majo claimed the Real Madrid icon was offered to him, but the defender's agent insists he will never turn out for the Catalans

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos will never join Barcelona, his agent Rene Ramos insists.

Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Majo had insisted that the centre-back was offered to him over a month ago as a potential signing if he wins the upcoming election, stating: "Sergio Ramos has been offered to me as an electoral trump card."

Majo went on to say he did not entertain the proposal, saying he would not play any part in what he believed was a game to earn Ramos a better deal in contract negotiations at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ramos' representative moved to respond to the story, insisting there are no circumstances in which the 29-year-old would ever ditch the capital club for their fierce rivals.

"Sergio Ramos will never play for Barca," said the player's brother and agent Rene.

Meanwhile, Josep Maria Bartomeu, who is running for re-election as president at Camp Nou, was also asked about Majo's claims.

"Majo has been offered to Sergio Ramos? They have never offered anything to us," he replied.
