Real Madrid are ready to listen to offers for star defender Sergio Ramos. Radio Marca says Real are pulling back from plans to offer Ramos a lifetime contract and instead are drawing up a file of past indiscretions, including his critical interview last weekend of coach Bernd Schuster.

Madrid management are fed-up with Ramos' contract demands, particularly as since his arrival he's seen his terms twice improved - tripling his original salary.

Now Real are ready to sell - and could do so as early as January if a European rival is willing to offer the right price.

Rene Ramos, Sergio's brother and agent, held talks with Real chiefs on Tuesday and discussed a move abroad - with AC Milan being mentioned.
