Ramos wanted the same salary as Pique, which Real Madrid refused: report

Real Madrid and Sergio Ramos parted ways last summer after the two sides were unable to strike an agreement. It all came to a close with the centre back's transfer to PSG and an emotional farewell at Real Madrid. It was a bittersweet farewell filled with memories. 

When he left Real Madrid, he made it clear that it had not been because of financial disagreements with Florentino Pérez, but because of disagreements regarding the renewal period.

The camero asked for two years, which was given to him at PSG, while the ‘white’ president wanted to renew him for just one year. However, it seems that this difference was not the only one, and that rather there was a disagreement regarding money. 

Sergio Ramos I would have asked for the same or more than you earn Gerard Piqué at FC Barcelona.

Ramos eventually accepted the new offer, but Real Madrid claimed the contract had already expired, as the central defender himself stated. As a result, Ramos' Real Madrid career came to an end. 

Ramos signed a new contract until summer 2020 before the start of the 2015-16 season, with a one-year extension after that. Ramos signed four Real Madrid contracts in the end. 

According to 'Sport,' Sergio Ramos asked Real Madrid for the same amount of money that Gerard Pique received at Barcelona. Footballers frequently assess their own function in the team and compare it to that of their teammates. Ramos, on the other hand, took a different approach. 

According to 'Sport,' Sergio Ramos likened his pay to that of the Barca defender. "Pique earns this much," the Catalan newspaper stated, "therefore I demand the same or more." 

They further claim that Ramos was enraged when he learned that Pique had been earning more for several years than him, and that even his inner circle wanted to corroborate Pique's income with Barcelona insiders. 

Ramos' contract was eventually extended until 2021, but no deal was reached by the end of the season, and he was unable to realize his desire of retiring with PSG. Ramos' career with the French national team has been marred by injury, and he has only played 300 minutes.
