The Daily Star understands that Manchester United’s hopes of signing Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos appear to be over after the defender penned a new deal with the La Liga giants.
The Spain international, who has been with Real since 2005, has now committed himself to the club until the end of the 2019/20 season amid interest from United.
During his time at the Bernabeu, Ramos has racked up almost four hundred and fifty appearances in all competitions, scoring fifty-five goals and winning a host of major honours including three league titles, two Spanish cups and the Champions League.
He also has ten goals in one hundred and twenty-eight appearances for his country, and was part of their all-conquering squads for the European Championships in 2008 and 2012, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Rafael Benitez’s Real Madrid kick-off their season with a trip to Gijon on Sunday evening, with the away win priced at 2/9.
