Manchester United are closing in on a deal to sign Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, according to the Mail Online.
The centre-back has been at the Bernabeu for the past ten seasons, racking up almost four hundred and fifty appearances in all competitions, scoring fifty-five goals.
However, he has just two years remaining on his current contract, and is disappointed that he has not yet been offered an extension.
United boss Louis van Gaal is keen to strengthen his defensive line this summer as he takes the Red Devils back into the Champions League after a one-year absence.
The Dutchman relied heavily on inexperienced players at the back during his first season at Old Trafford, with Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett making twenty-seven league outings between them, with both making their first team debuts less than a year ago.
Having finished in fourth place last season, Van Gaal’s side can be backed at 1/4 to finish in the Champions League qualification places next May.
