Arsenal And Man Utd On Red Alert Over £40m Elegant Defender – reports

Manchester United and Arsenal have been put on red alert over Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

Both Premier League giants have been reportedly contacted by Ramos and his representatives over a possible summer move for the talented central defender, according to sources close to Ramos.

However, a move for Ramos would almost certainly cost around £40 million, given how important he is to the Champions League winners.

His current deal with Real expires in 2017, and he is currently in negotiations over a new contract.

Talks have not gone well so far though, with Ramos keen on a pay rise as part of any new agreement.

This is an issue, given the length his contract still has to run.

As a result, Ramos has tested the market by contacting both Premier League sides, according to the Daily Star.

Ramos is known to have a poor relationship with Real president Florentino Perez, which could hinder any discussions between the two parties.

Our verdict

Ramos is one of the world’s most talented defenders, only getting a bad reputation because any mistake he makes is magnified. Both Arsenal and Man Utd would be lucky to sign a player of his quality, especially given their defensive issues.
