In Marca’s Wednesday edition, it was stated that Pérez would not only get a deal with Ramos, but with other unhappy players as well, which meant Cristiano Ronaldo. They go on to write that Pérez is going to have sort out the Ramos situation sooner rather than later and that the club only have one option in mind for the defender, and that is for him to continue playing for them.
With both players being linked with a move to Old Trafford, it would be interesting to see if a deal does get completed for either one of them anytime soon.
But, Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez dismissed all such speculations and claimed that there is no tension between him and the 3 times Ballon d’Or winner.
“My relationship with him is the same as with the other players. I speak a lot with all of them.
“There are people that say this or that, but I can assure you that it’s not true. My relationship with him is absolutely normal.”
“Fortunately after working with him [Ronaldo] you get to see just how competitive he is, how he likes to win and the quality he has,” Benitez said. “This is why he is the best in the world.
“I always try to bring out the best of the players I have. Seeing Cristiano at work, you understand why he has the trophies he has. He is clearly the best in the world.
“I would like for everyone to have the same will to compete and win that he has. He proves it every day and I’m delighted.”
