Real Madrid coach Juande Ramos continues to be linked with a move across town to Atletico. Sport says despite the assurances Atletico directors have given coach Abel Resino, there are those close to president Enrique Cerezo that are pushing for Ramos to replace him at the end of this season.

Former Tottenham boss Ramos is keen on the move and is willing to reject a lucrative £4 million-a-year offer from CSKA Moscow to keep himself available for Atletico.
