"Pay me and I'll go."
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos told club president Florentino Perez that he will happily leave the club if they pay up his contract.
AS report that the pair had a huge row in the Santiago Bernabeu dressing room in the aftermath of Madrid's Champions League exit at the hands of Ajax.
Witnesses to the confrontation report Ramos told Perez, "I've given everything and busted a gut for this badge, for this club and even for you".
And after club president Perez questioned the attitude of the Blancos players, Ramos - who missed the match through suspension - stepped in to defend the rest of the squad.
Following the encounter with the captain, it has been reported that Perez left for a meeting with the Real Madrid board to discuss potential coaching options should a decision be made to fire Santiago Solari.
