‘We worked hard to close the Ramos deal. We had an agreement but it didn’t happen. As a Besiktas fan I really want to see it. We negotiated for 18 or 19 days, money was secondary. Ramos received another offer of €27m net, but he didn’t even consider it.’UFABET 

Cetinzaya further revealed that.

Jose Maria Gutierrez Guti, a former Real Madrid midfielder who played with Besiktas for one season in 2010 before he hung up his boots, also joined. Come take part in convincing Ramos to move to play with a famous Turkish team as well.

‘Guti spoke to Ramos on our behalf, he is a great reference. On Monday afternoon, August 21st, we received the answer. ‘Congratulations Besiktas’ on transfer, Ramos has given us the green light. We also discussed bonuses with his agent. We prepared the contract through our lawyer and sent it.’

‘They invited us to their house in Madrid to complete the remaining procedures and take Ramos to Turkey. We had a long discussion about how much we would pay if he scored more than 25 goals. Asked for a lot of money because he believed he would score 25 goals.’ 

‘There are six clubs competing for Sergio Ramos, Galatasaray among them. When we begin to negotiate It would be impossible for him to sign for a team that is not playing in the Champions League. But we were able to convince him that, although Sergio Ramos wanted a two-year contract, we agreed to a 1+1 contract at the end of the first year. We have the right to be fired unilaterally.’

‘We have promised him €4 million, €1 million on signing and €6 million will be paid by the sponsor in exchange for advertising. This is because there is a possibility that a sponsor may not be found. The president had doubts about the €6 million and we withdrew from the transfer due to the president’s decision.’
