The battle to sign Sergio Ramos in the summer transfer window is starting to heat up. Man United and Man City are among the teams that are keen on signing the 35-year-old centre-back, who is leaving Real Madrid.
Ramos is a bonafide legend of the game and is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of his generation, having transcended generations beautifully while at Real Madrid. After arriving at the Bernabeu, Sergio steadily grew in stature in Real Madrid’s first-team setup, starting out as a right-back before becoming one of the best central defenders in the world.
However, after 16 years at Real Madrid, Spain international is set for a new phase in his career, having failed to reach an agreement with the club over the terms of a new deal.
With his current deal running out at the end of the month, a glorious chapter in the Spaniard as well as Real Madrid’s history is set to come to an end. As for his next destination, Man United and Man City are keen on signing him.
Man United are reportedly in the market for a defender this summer owing to the fact that Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly have been unreliable customers for them, either due to injuries or displays on the pitch.
Finding a dependable partner for captain Harry Maguire is critical and to that end, Man United have been linked with a myriad of defenders including Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
Now, it looks like Raphael’s partner-in-crime at Real Madrid in recent years Sergio Ramos could be on the agenda at Old Trafford, with his leadership qualities also being an added bonus for Man United.
