Sergio Ramos willing to sign for FC Barcelona?

As crazy as it sounds, FC Barcelona want to sign the Spanish defender, according to El Chiringuito.

Sergio Ramos is still negotiating with Real Madrid over a contract extension. The latest reports coming from Spain aren't exactly encouraging, as Ramos' demands are way too high for Real Madrid's wishes. That's why Ramos' agent is leaking offers from several clubs around Europe in order to put some pressure on Real Madrid's side.

The Spanish defender would be willing to sign for FC Barcelona, according to El Chiringuito. Barcelona would see this as an opportunity to bounce back from the disappointment that was losing Luis Figo to Real Madrid 15 years ago and Real Madrid would be forced to give Ramos what he wants in order to get than extension done, per that same report.

Ramos is committed to this club, meaning that he's probably using this report to get the extension he wants. It's probably not a good strategy, but Ramos' brother and agent René Ramos doesn't care much about his own reputation.
