Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos reportedly approached by Bayern Munich

High salary demands are a sticking point in Real Madrid contract renewal negotiations.

Real Madrid have a serious problem to consider, if they're to keep hold of central defender Sergio Ramos, claims a report in Voz Populi.

Contract extension negotiations appear to have hit a brick wall at the Bernabeu, with the Spain international feeling he's worth much more than the deal on the table, whilst also conscious that the next deal he pens could be most lucrative of his career.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is apparently unwilling to budge, leaving Ramos feeling disgruntled that he doesn't feel as highly valued as other leading stars in the team, or other leading defenders playing at other clubs.

Due to that and as suggested by Voz Popular, one club in particular who could be prepared to offer Ramos a salary package more to his liking, are German giants Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga side managed by Pep Guardiola have reportedly shown more than a passing interest, making discreet enquiries to the brother and agent of the 29-year-old, Rene Ramos, whilst the player was on international duty with Spain a week ago.

Bayern Munich are certainly not lacking in financial strength, sufficient to offer Ramos terms which are more to his liking.

The Independent also reported that another financially powerful club, Chelsea, are keeping a close eye on the Spaniard's situation, perchance that Jose Mourinho could lure him to Stamford Bridge.

If it proves to be the case Real Madrid won't bend when it comes to offering him a higher financial package, the player and his club could both be making important decisions this summer, should a formal bid be forthcoming.
