Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is unhappy that the Spanish giants have let his contract run down to less than two years remaining, and while talk of him wanting to go to Manchester United might be his way of trying to secure a new deal for himself at the Santiago Bernabeu by making it appear he has other suitors, the feeling is that he could very well be ready for a change and sees Manchester United as a great opportunity.
As we already know David De Gea to Real Madrid is all but for agreeing a fee and the paper work a done deal, and while United hinted at a possible switch involving striker Karim Benzema, Real President Florentino Perez let them know it was a non-starter as the Frenchman was not for sale.
Ramos however is another kettle of fish, with United able to capitalize on the 29-year-olds uncertainty and offer the kind of contract Real Madrid would never dream of putting in front of their veteran defender, which in his mind is around £140,000 per-week.
This figure is well within United’s means, but it is almost certain that Real Madrid would not do a straight swap with Real assumed to want around £46.5 million for the world-class defender meaning that United would also have to put up some cash.
Here at Soccer Transfers we feel that a player of Ramos’s ability and experience would bring a whole new element to Louis van Gaal’s team as they seek to win the Premiership next season.
Ramos would also soften the blow of losing De Gea, and with a new manager in charge at Madrid and the fact Perez never lets a player he wants to keep let his contract run down this far, it is a real possibility that the Spanish international could be coming to Old Trafford.
