Sergio Ramos Has ‘Said Goodbye’ To Real Madrid After Rejecting Florentino Perez Offer



Sergio Ramos ‘has said goodbye’ to Real Madrid ahead of a now inevitable free transfer this summer, according to one reports in Spain.

The 35-year-old has played for the Madrid giants since 2005 and has won it all. In almost 700 appearances, he’s lifted five La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues, and is hoping to add one more of each before the season is out.

Any trophies Ramos gets his hands on this season, however, may be his last in Madrid. He’s out of contract in the summer, and while it was previously reported that an agreement was close, doubts have crept in since the turn of the year.

ABC claimed in February that Real had set him a March deadline for signing a new contract, which included a two-year extension and a 10% pay cut. If that was the offer, though, it seems to have left Ramos bemused.

El Chiringuito’s Josep Pedrerol claims that things went south after Ramos sat down with Florentino Perez following their win over Atalanta last month.

Pedrerol’s dramatic claim ends by proclaiming that with this latest exchange Ramos has already ‘said goodbye’ to Real Madrid.

It will be a sad end to his career in the Spanish capital if the club captain does walk away for free, but he can have few regrets if he does. He scored his 100th goal for Los Blancos earlier this season, and will be remembered as one of their all-time greats.

He will have the chance to get his hands on a fifth Champions League after Real advanced past Liverpool to make the semi-finals, where they will face Chelsea.

Ramos played no part against the Reds due to injury but is expected to return in time for the semi-final first leg in two weeks.

Police Arrest Driver Who Knocked Down Woman And Dumped Her In A Bush To Die



A driver who knocked down a 27-year-old teacher of De Youngsters School at Adenta with his vehicle and abandoned her to die in a bush at Abokobi has been arrested by the police.

The incident happened at the Adentan-Dodowa traffic intersection at about 7 p.m. on June 7, 2021.

The suspect, Emeka Adams, 42, was arrested nine days after he had allegedly knocked down the teacher with a Hyundai Sonata Saloon vehicle with registration number GB 2126-20.

The unlicensed driver has since been charged with murder.

Confirming the arrest, the Public Relations Officer of the Greater Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Mrs Effia Tenge, said after knocking down the teacher, the suspect picked her up under the pretext of taking her to a health facility for treatment.

However, she said police investigations showed that the suspect allegedly abandoned the teacher in a bush at Abokobi, instead of taking her to the hospital.

The body of the victim, she said, was later found in the bush at Abokobi and the police were informed. The police retrieved the body and conveyed it to the Police Hospital Morgue for autopsy and preservation.

Police intelligence, she said, led to the arrest of Adams last Wednesday and the vehicle was also found in his possession.
