The scenario is repeated after 16 years.. Real Madrid finds Ramos’ successor in Seville
It seems that Real Madrid is close to signing a replacement for its historical leader Sergio Ramos, who left the Royal Club after 16 years between the walls of the Santiago Bernabeu. ABC said that Real Madrid intends to sign French defender Julius Conde from Seville in the summer market. Real Madrid names Ramos successor And the network reported that Conde, aged 22, prefers to move to Real Madrid, preferring him to the top European clubs. ABC indicated that Conde told Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe, his two colleagues in the French national team, that Real Madrid is his favorite club, and he believes that it is the ideal place after two seasons during which he excelled with Seville. Didier Deschamps called Conde to the France squad for Euro 2020 and brought him against Portugal at right-back. The network indicated that Conde’s desire may constitute a decisive factor in his move to Real Madrid, but the task of the royal club will not be easy in light of the interest of Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in contracting with the French international, knowing that his contract expires in June 2024. The biggest obstacle for Real Madrid in resolving the deal is that the value of Conde’s termination of contract with Seville amounts to 80 million euros, which is a large number in light of the financial crisis that European clubs are experiencing due to the Corona virus pandemic. And the newspaper mundodeportivo had previously reported that Sevilla had rejected an offer of 55 million euros from Manchester City to give up Conde’s contract, which confirms that the Andalusian club will not easily give up its player. Conde joined Seville in the summer of 2019 from Bordeaux, France, for 25 million euros, before the player developed his level significantly, as he participated with the team in 89 matches, in which he scored 6 goals and assisted 2, and won the European League title with him in his first season. Duplicate scenario And if Real Madrid succeeds in signing Conde, it will repeat an old scenario, when it signed Sergio Ramos from Seville in the summer of 2005, before turning into one of the greatest defenders of the royal club and the world. But Real Madrid announced the departure of Ramos, after 16 years during which he wore the Meringue shirt in 761 games, in which he scored 101 goals and assisted 40.
