Manchester United and Liverpool have contacted the entourage of Sergio Ramos who could leave Real Madrid this summer, according to the latest reports from England
Arrived from Sevilla back in 2005, the Spain international has established himself as one of the best defenders of his generation, collecting over 400 appearances for Los Blancos ever since.
However, Los Merengues’ captain has endured a frustrating season like the rest of his teammates and has already expressed his desire to leave the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
A breakdown between Ramos and Florentino Perez has escalated after Real’s disappointing Champions League elimination to Ajax when he has allegedly asked the president to sell him.
Even though he is already 33, it would require a substantial compensation fee for Perez to let his talisman leave after 14 years of services.
What’s more, Ramos’ contract with La Liga giants is due to expire in 2021, which will make it hard for interested parties to persuade Real to sell.
But, the Premier League heavyweights are assessing the possibility of landing one of the most reliable defenders in Europe, as both look to challenge Manchester City for the title next season.
While Liverpool solved the majority of their defensive problems by signing Virgil Van Dijk, Manchester United’s defensive frailties have been tormenting Ole Gunnar Solskajer for the entire second half of the season.
The Red Devils have conceded 54 goals in the Premier League this campaign, keeping just seven clean sheets in 38 league outings.
As a result, the Norwegian manager is desperate to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new season, and Ramos perfectly fits the profile.
Meanwhile, a transfer to Juventus seems to still be on the cards, especially considering that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to reunite with his former captain.
