REAL MADRID captain Sergio Ramos has threatened to quit the club should Jose Mourinho return – and has reportedly been spotted clashing with a team-mate in training.
The Spaniard has endured a torrid time of late, with Los Blancos struggling in La Liga and crashing out of the Champions League.
Ramos was the subject of ridicule last week after watching his side get thrashed by Ajax while he sat in the stands, having been suspended for purposely getting himself booked in the first leg.
And the Daily Mail now report the defender has told Madrid chiefs that he is preparing to leave the capital.
The publication claims Ramos has told the board he will walk should former boss Mourinho return to the club in the near future.
The 32-year-old fought with his old manager during his previous stint at the Bernabeu.
But Mourinho is now being tipped to replace Santiago Solari at Madrid due to recent results, something which Ramos is dead against.
The Mail report the skipper has already held talks with Florentino Perez regarding the matter.
To add, Ramos has also been spotted clashing with team-mate Marcelo on the training field.
Spanish outlet Marca report the two Madrid stars clashed on Saturday afternoon after what had been a testing week.
Eye-witnesses claim Ramos and Marcelo fell out after the Brazilian celebrated a small-sided match victory in a way that did not sit well with his captain.
Madrid players intervened to stop the dispute escalating.
Solari’s men got back to winning ways on Sunday evening, beating Real Valladolid 4-1 away from home.
Goals from Raphael Varane, Luka Modric and a double from Karim Benzema means Madrid can still harbour a small hope of remaining in the La Liga title race.
However, Barcelona still sit 12 points ahead of Los Blancos.
