Defensive superstar rules-out summer switch to join Conte at Chelsea

RamosThe hopes of Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been shattered today, after they heard an international giant is not interested in a move to their club.

ESPN state 30-year-old defender Sergio Ramos has ‘heard nothing’ about the rumours linking him with a switch to Stamford Bridge and his aim is to retire with Real Madrid.

The World Cup winning defender was also linked to Manchester United last summer and although he admits he considered moving to the Premier League, he told Cope he has no intention to move to Chelsea.

“For a moment I thought about a change of scenery, but in the end my priority was always Real Madrid and I thought about that for other reasons.  I have not heard [anything about interest from Chelsea].”

“There are always lots of things said, and I have always said the same, attention from a big club is always a sign that you are doing well. But as long as my fans and my club want me, my main thought is to retire here.”

Given that Ramos only penned a five-year deal with the Spanish giants last summer, our landlord doesn’t find it too surprising that the defender is not thinking about an exit but he does believe United missed their chance last year.
