Sergio Ramos is one of the best and most decorated players in Real Madrid history. The Spaniard was an integral part of numerous triumphs during his time at Santiago Bernabeu, and cropped up with several big moments, most memorably the stoppage time equaliser against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final which led to La Decima.
Eder MIlitao recently picked up a serious injury, tearing his ACL in the first league match of the campaign, away at San Mames against Athletic Bilbao. It is possible that the Brazilian could be out for the entire season.
That has led to suggestions from many fans for the club to bring back Ramos for another stint at Real Madrid. The Spaniard is a free agent right now after his PSG contract ran out this summer.
Ramos might be 37 years of age, but he was a regular for PSG even last season. Thus, bringing him in as a short-term replacement for Militao and a cover option to the likes of Antonio Rudiger and David Alaba, might not be a bad idea on paper. Are Real Madrid considering it though?
Real Madrid make decision on Sergio Ramos return
As reported by El Debate, Real Madrid does not consider the possibility of signing Ramos. They are currently considering covering the two centre-back positions with Alaba, Rudiger and Nacho plus the contribution of homegrown players Carrillo and Obrador. There is also the possibility of converting Ferland Mendy into a central defender given his physical power.
All things considered, it seems like a return to Real Madrid is off the table for Ramos. The club might not even sign a centre-back to replace Militao and try to fill his void with options already at Santiago Bernabeu.
Whether that would be the right step or not, only time shall tell. Let’s just hope that Real Madrid do not pick up any more serious injuries.
