Florentino Perez Gives one Condition for Ramos to Leave Real Madrid

  Real Madrid president, Florentino Pérez, is willing to let captain, Sergio Ramos, leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window if the club can sign Bayern Munich’s David Alaba as his replacement, according to Marca. Perez is weighing up his options when it comes to Ramos and could be more willing to let the veteran centre-back go if he manages to sign Alaba. Alaba has since confirmed he will leave Bayern on a free transfer this summer, although his reported wage demands of £400,000 a week could be a problem. Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona and Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the Austrian international. Meanwhile, Ramos appears increasingly likely to end his 16-year spell at the club and leave on a free transfer at the end of the seas...

‘Kane could leave in 2021 but Bale will excite him’ – Sheringham assesses transfer talk at Spurs

The story has been told of the smallest baby boy ever to be born who weighed just about 0.4kg or 1lbs.

The baby, who could fit into his doctors' hands, was treated at a neonatal intensive care unit where medics got his weight up to 7.14lbs (3.2kg). And last Wednesday, he finally left hospital - two months after his actu...
