Sergio Ramos is set to leave Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer and is reportedly keen on moving to the Premier League due to a possible move to French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Talks over a new contract have erupted between Los Blancos and their captain, and having entered the final six months of his contract, he is now in a position to negotiate a pre-arranged transfer to any club in Europe.
This collapse between Madrid and Ramos has encouraged French giants PSG to try to lure the Spaniard into Ligue 1, but according to The Mirror, the World Cup winner has his eyes on a possible Premier League move, with Manchester United his favorite destination. .
90 mins exclusively revealed in November 2020 that the Premier League greats are all considering a move for center-back and that he may be tempted to leave Madrid this summer.
The Red Devils are one of the few clubs that could afford to pay Ramos’ hefty salary as he will be asking for over £ 200,000 a week, despite his years of advancement. The 34-year-old is still an elite defender and will expect to be paid accordingly by the club that wins his services.
Sources close to the player have suggested that a move to Manchester City or Liverpool would be “very difficult” to finalize, but they are not ruling out anyone at this point. This could prompt Everton to make a play for the experienced center-back, using coach Carlo Ancelotti as leverage, after the two worked closely during the Italian’s stay in the Spanish capital.
All of this leaves the door open for Man Utd who would be Ramos’ preference if he were to complete his move to England. The Red Devils have shown they are ready to sign aging players on free transfers, having snatched Edinson Cavani, 33, for nothing at the end of the summer transfer window.
So a move for one of football’s most experienced and successful minions is a more than realistic alternative to bolstering their defense next year.
