Italy-ALSHARQIYA June 22: An Italian press report stated, today, Tuesday, that the Roma club made an official offer to the Spaniard Sergio Ramos, the former Real Madrid captain, to sign him this summer.
Ramos (35 years old) contract with Real Madrid expired at the end of last season, and the two parties did not reach an agreement on the renewal.
According to the Italian network, Sport Mediaset, Roma offered Ramos 7.5 million euros in annual salary, but the former Real Madrid star asked for some time to consider the offer.
The report added that Ramos is on the radar of many European clubs, such as Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, "but Roma is the first team to make an official offer."
Ramos disagreed with Real Madrid over the value of the contract, as Merengue offered a 10% deduction from his salary, but Ramos refused, insisting on getting his full salary (10 million euros).
The report indicated that Ramos, in the event of his move to Rome, could benefit from the so-called “growth decree” to pay only 100,000 euros, as taxes on any income from abroad, such as sponsorship contracts.
The growth decree applies to all workers who move to Italy from abroad for at least two years.
