Pérez plans overhaul in Real Madrid's defense

Florentino Pérez plans massive overhaul in Real Madrid's defense

January 8, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The moves planned by the Spanish giants' president would pave the way for Jose Mourinho's arrival next summer.

Real Madrid's successful era in Europe was fueled by players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Luka Modric. The first player to leave the club was CR7, and the three players mentioned previously seem to be headed right down the same path.

The team's woeful performance this season has taken a toll on some of its leaders, and it seems that the Spanish center back and the Brazilian defender will not continue playing for Los Blancos beyond this summer. 

Don Balon's report hints that Florentino Pérez has made Ramos' departure a top priority, since he feels that the center back has become a negative influence inside the team's locker room. Pérez's claims were fueled by Ramos' comments in October that forced Los Blancos to keep Santiago Solari at the helm rather than appointing Antonio Conte as coach, since Ramos was not willing to work with the Italian boss.

Ramos' departure would pave the way for Jose Mourinho's signing, who is not interested in working with the problematic center back again. The pair had their fair share of problems during Mou's first stint at the Bernabeu, especially when the Portuguese tactician accused Iker Casillas and Ramos of leaking confidential info to the press.

Regarding Marcelo, the player's poor form all season has raised questions about his future, with Juventus following any development closely, since the Brazilian is one of their targets to boost their squad next summer, mainly because of his relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid's woes this season have fed the rumor mill almost every week, but both of these footballers seem to be living their final months at the Bernabeu.
