Manchester United has upped their offer for Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos by offering the Spanish giants 45€ million for the 29-year-old.
Real for their part are still sticking to their guns telling United that it will take 90€ million to land the Spanish international.
The latest offer comes after Real Madrid president Florentino Perez supposedly closed the door on any Ramos transfer when speaking earlier this week while saying farewell to Iker Casillas.
“There are players on contract that the club does not want to let go and are not going to leave,” he said, as fans chanted “Ramos is not for sale”.
United meanwhile have money set aside for Ramos and are willing to offer him 11€ million per-season for five-years, an amount that Real Madrid would be reluctant to match.
All this comes on the news that new trainer Rafa Benitez is prepared to offer Ramos the captain’s armband if he remains at the club.
