Real Madrid are ready to cash in on defender Sergio Ramos. El Mundo Deportivo says the decision has been taken to sell the Spain international at the end of the season, despite him still having four years to run on his contract.

Real president Florentino Perez is convinced in a World Cup year they can get a good price for Ramos, whose last 12 months have been blighted by disciplinary problems and injury.

Only a dramatic reversal of form and attitude will rescue Ramos, it is claimed.
