Manchester United interested in signing Sergio Ramos but faces competition from rivals


Manchester United is looking to find the right partnership for Harry Maguire for some time and now they are interested in signing Sergio Ramos to solidify their defence. They have been struggling this season defensively and already conceded 14 goals from 7 matches and sitting 14th in the premier league.

Red Devils are reportedly keeping a close eye on Sergio Ramos as the speculation surrounding the Real Madrid captain’s future continues to gather pace.

The 34-year-old has still not penned a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, and as it stands, he would be able to discuss terms with foreign clubs in January ahead of a free transfer next summer.

Sergio Ramos was strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford in 2015 before ultimately signing a new long term-contract with Real Madrid and decided to commit himself for the Los Blancos.

It won’t be easy for Manchester United to land Ramos at Old Trafford. There will be fierce competition from other top-six English clubs, PSG and Juventus.

Arch rivals Liverpool are in market for new centre-back as well, will be keeping tabs on Ramos situation at Real Madrid.

Manchester United haven’t been clinical in the transfer market and they tend to lose out their targets when there is competition, so, it will be a very difficult mission for them.

In the summer transfer window, manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer failed to sign their key target Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. United also lost Thiago Alcantara, Gareth Bale, and Sergio Reguilon to rival clubs.

Ramos would have to signal that he wants to move away from the La Liga champions. Ramos is believed to want a two-year extension with Los Blancos, but it remains to be seen whether the Spanish champions are prepared to offer more than a 12-month deal.

Sergio Ramos has been an integral part for the Real Madrid side, in defence and attack as well. He was the second-highest goal scorer for them and it will be difficult to watch Real Madrid without Ramos.

The experienced defender has scored 100 goals in 660 appearances for Madrid, winning five La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns since arriving from Sevilla in 2005.
