Ronaldo and Ramos hand in transfer requests

This summer, the transfer window is set to be one of the most exciting ones in recent times with players from all over Europe set to change clubs.

But none of those rumors come close to this massive story that has emerged from Spain earlier today.

Just days after it was reported that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is set to leave the club at the end of the season, a Spanish news outlet has reported that star players Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, have handed in transfer requests for a move this summer directly to the president.

Spanish TV programme El Chiringuito bought to light the story about the two players meeting Perez to hand in transfer requests last night.

Ronaldo who has not had the best of seasons so far has been constantly linked to a move away from Real Madrid and his team-mate Sergio Ramos has also been linked to Manchester United from the past few seasons.

These reports have come incidentally just after the 1-0 defeat in the Madrid derby this weekend.

Ronaldo of course played for United between 2003 and 2009 before his then-world record £80m move to Real. The Portuguese scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Old Trafford side, and won three Premier League titles, three League Cups, one FA Cup and one Champions League in a trophy-laden spell with the club.

But it is not easy for the 31-year old to go back to the Premier League and shine as he did in his last stint.

Ramos on the other hand  might be eager to prove his mettle in the best league in the world and may make his mind to make the move away from the club this season.

However, the present season is still not over as Real Madrid are 12 points away from Barcelona at the top of the table.

Though the La Liga title seems a bit far away at the moment, a strong finish to the season with a good run in the Champions League is going to be important for the club to go into the next season on a high.
