Manchester United target Sergio Ramos’s contract negotiations with Real Madrid have stalled and he is open to other offers, AS reports.
Ramos has been at Madrid for well over a decade and won countless trophies on his way to becoming one of the very best defenders in the game, but his contract troubles at Madrid have now meant that he is back in the headlines.
It is believed that he cannot agree a new contract with Real and that has led to reports that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be interested in trying to get a transfer deal done as they seek to bolster their squad just that bit more.
His current deal runs out in the summer and the Real Madrid captain has been ‘disappointed’ by the offers made so far, and The report also says Ramos has met with Florentino Perez to tell him he plans to talk to other clubs as he decides on his next move.
Ramos has made 13 appearances in La Liga this season, scoring twice. The Real Madrid icon has won 22 trophies at the club including five league titles and four Champions Leagues.
A few seasons ago, Ramos would have been a world class signing for United and one player that fans would have loved to see arrive. But now that he has gotten on a bit, they would be getting a player that is in the twilight of his career.
There is a reason why Madrid are not giving him the contract that he wants, and that is because he is not the same player he was.
He has experience, he is a winner, but what is the point in buying him for one or two seasons, as we said, he is not the same player he was.
