Manchester United are set to snub a move for Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, according to reports. The defender will leave Real Madrid after 16 years at the club and despite links to the club, new reports claim that a transfer will not be pursued.
Ramos was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in 2015 but after months of rumours, Ramos ended up renewing his contract at the capital club instead.
And according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United will not pursue a deal to sign Ramos on a free transfer this summer. The club is said to still be unhappy with his agent’s behaviour in that 2015 saga, and a move to PSG is suggested as the most likely outcome.
The report claims that despite deciding against a move for Sergio Ramos, a centre-back remains on Solskjaer’s radar as an area they’re looking to improve this summer.
An alternative to Ramos is his club teammate Raphael Varane, who is reportedly the subject of a £50m bid from Manchester United. The France international would go hand-in-hand with Solskjaer’s long-term planning, having only just celebrated his 28th birthday.
