Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos and president Florentino Perez have today revealed that they purchased a fawn pug together, in what has been described as a desperate final attempt to rebuild their relationship.
Rumours have circulated all summer that Ramos is seeking a departure from Real Madrid after feeling unappreciated by Perez, with Manchester United the suggested destination.
However, after what were said to be crunch talks at the weekend, the two men appeared in public today during the club’s pre-season tour of China, showing off their new fawn pug, named Thomas.
“Any suggestions of a rift are wide of the mark,” said Perez. “We’re happier than ever. This new arrival merely illustrates our commitment to each other and our completely happy relationship.”
Ramos added. “Flo and I go back a long way. He is a good man. I’m lucky to have him in my life.”
At press time Ramos was said to have been grumpy with Perez after he had spent all afternoon paying attention to Cristiano Ronaldo.
