Last summer, there were many reports claiming Manchester United were in advance discussion to sign Sergio Ramos who then had just about a year to run on his contract before penning a new deal. Many felt United were very close to the signing of the world cup winner and now the player himself has revealed the deal was considered.

Talking to Spanish radio programme El Partido de las 12 Ramos confirmed he received an offer from Old Trafford and critically considered leaving Real Madrid for Manchester United. He went further to say he want to leave the Santiago Bernabeu because he felt disappointed but his disappointment wasn’t because of money as was reported then.

“There was a firm offer, on paper. For a moment I thought about a change of scene, but Real Madrid was always my priority. I felt disappointed, but not due to economic problems like people said.

“I have not heard about (interest from Chelsea). Many things have always been said.

“Flattery from big clubs is always good as this is because you are doing well, but if the fans and my club want me.” quotes via skysports
